2009 Kawasaki Ninja 250R

MSRP Standard $3,999 / Special Edition $4,099
Supersport style, real world comfort, out of this world practicality

Nimble handling, an exceptional personality and a low price tag highlight Kawasaki’s Ninja® 250R sportbike, while its UNI-TRAK® rear suspension, petal disc brakes and gas-sipping twin-cylinder engine contribute to its class leading performance and value. It’s no surprise the Ninja 250R is such a strong seller.

The lightweight Ninja 250R’s true secret of success is its winning formula: A rider-friendly engine, real world performance and an amiable chassis topped off with Ninja supersport styling. The icing on this small Kawasaki cake is the motorcycle’s ability to transcend skill levels and appeal to all riders from novice to seasoned veteran.

At the core of the Ninja 250R is an engine that thrives on high-rpm excitement. The gutsy 249cc parallel twin is tuned for a peppy, yet smooth and predictable power delivery. The beginner friendly low- and mid-range torque comes courtesy of its dual overhead camshafts and 2-into-1 exhaust system. A silky smooth six-speed transmission lets riders to exploit the 250R’s powerband without fanfare from that low-end grunt to the crowd pleasing and lively top-end rush. Last, but not least is the little Ninja’s silver lining – its excellent fuel economy.

Wrapping the 250R are the fairing and windscreen that not only look great, but deliver wind protection for a wide range of riding situations. Tucked in behind the windscreen are more rider-friendly features such as the easy-to-read instrument panel and neutral indicator.

A natural riding position and comfortable ergonomics combine with lightweight handling, easy controllability and great throttle response for pure pleasure on city streets. Part of this great handling and stability comes from the 17-inch wheels. Bringing the show to a stop are the large petal shaped 290mm front and 220mm rear rotors gripped by powerful two-piston hydraulic calipers. Like Kawasaki’s other Ninja models, the 250R is equipped with quality components and tuned for class-leading performance.

Lightweight and agile, the Ninja 250R boasts low ownership costs and is a dominating force in the entry-level sportbike category.

• Meets strict emissions with dual catalyzers; one in the collector pipe and the other in the silencer
• Using two catalyzers minimizes the power loss
• Positioning the first catalyzer as close to the exhaust ports maximizes its efficiency as well

Cylinder Head:

• Spring-type clutch damper reduces jerkiness at very low speeds and minimizes shocks when rolling on and off the throttle for a smoother clutch feel
• Paper-base friction plates help increase clutch durability

Chassis:
• Sturdy and durable diamond-style frame of thick-walled steel tubing offers confidence-inspiring stability at both high and low speeds
• Beefy swingarm bracket contributes to the frame’s rigidity and helps achieve an ideal chassis stiffness balance
