2015 Kawasaki Ninja 250SL livery update in Japan

Advertisements

2015-Kawasaki-Ninja-250SL-002Kawasaki Heavy Industries in Japan has updated the livery of the popular Ninja 250SL. Still fresh, SL, refers to ‘ Slim & Lightweight’ or ‘Super Light’. This is correct as it is about 20kg lighter than the 2-cylinder Ninja 250. This Ninja 250SL comes with 1-cylinder engine that can push 20.6kW (29PS) @ 9,700RPM and 22.6Nm @ 8,200 RPM. The body is slim and this makes it easy to manouvre in tight spot and the lightness makes it easy to accelerate. The livery refresh shows more curve lines as opposed to the Ninja 250SL that features a lot of sharp lines. In Indonesia, this same bike is known as Ninja RR Mono, which refers to the engine that is 1-cylinder. Check out 5 more pictures after the jump including the 2015 Ninja 250SL in lime green: 

Not sure whether this 2015 livery will come to Malaysia or not in April.

The price for last year, 2014 Kawasaki Ninja 250SL is RM17,689.00 (basic).
