At the heart of the Ninja 250 is its new 4-stroke, liquid-cooled, 249 cm3 Parallel Twin engine. Smooth, torquey low-mid range response is complemented by strong acceleration at high rpm. Fuel injection ensures easy starting and the ideal amount of fuel in all conditions.
The new engine features a sleeveless aluminium die-cast cylinder with supersport-style plated bores. The cylinder block is very lightweight and offers excellent heat dissipation.
Increased engine performance care of new pistons, cylinder, crankcases and exhaust puts the Ninja 250 in a class of its own. Superior power and torque at all rpm, a vast top-speed advantage and class-leading acceleration performance ensure the Ninja 250 rides at the front of the pack.
New diamond-style frame with optimised rigidity offers the high level of chassis stability necessary for high-performance sport riding. Rubber front engine mounts significantly reduce engine vibration, contributing to the high-quality ride feel.
Combined with the stiffer new frame, revised suspension settings front and rear contribute to the Ninja 250’s nimble handling, and enable both increased comfort for city riding as well as a firmer feeling when sport riding.
Airflow control is the key to ensuring silky smooth power delivery. Like the Ninja ZX-10R and Ninja ZX-6R, the new Ninja 250 uses a second set of ECU-controlled throttle valves to precisely regulate intake airflow for natural, linear response, improved combustion efficiency and increased power.
The large openings and fin design of the fairings – inspired by those of the Ninja ZX-14R – help promote airflow that assists with heat dissipation when moving. When stuck in traffic, innovative technology like the radiator fan cover directs hot engine air down and away from the rider, adding to increased rider comfort and the high-quality ride feel.
Supersport-style petal disc brakes front and rear ensure strong stopping power, sublime control and feel, and racy Ninja looks.
