Kawasaki Ninja 250R


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I managed to get the bike, still fairly new and doing my run in now.

 

1) Very good controls, due to it's raised handlebars.

2) Fuel consumption with constant speed (80-100kmph), average 250km/17l.

3) Exhaust sound is pretty good plus it's fuel injected as well.

4) Pickup is pretty good, 100kmph in 3-5secs.

5) Overall good design, with fair amounts of mods available. (Check ebay).

 

Hope this information helps for all future Kawi Ninja 250R riders!!

 

wow.. you got the fuel-injection version? it's supposed to be the Europe version. In Indonesia, Ninja250R uses conventional carb. I heard in Malaysia you'll get the fuel-injection version for Nonja250 Special Edition

guys.. this is maybe off the topic, but when I read through omnislash's story about he bought a pair of battlax BT45 and he thought he overpaid, suddenly I remember when I looked at an AGV helmet in klantan area. I was looking for AGV gothic black - Rossi edition and the price was ridiculous. At the first time the shop keeper gave an offer for the helmet for about SGD400. Then I bargained 3 times until he reduced the price to SGD250. I said to him I would think first then I straight away checked the price in Indonesia which is 1,750,000 rupiah. Assume 1SGD=7000 so SGD250 X 7000rupiah = exactly SGD250.

I understand there must be some difference at price for a product between 2 countries, but if the difference is about SGD150, that's ridiculous.

well.. maybe i'll buy the muffler in indonesia.. in indonesia Yoshimura USA, two brothers and leo vince is about 6,800,000 rupiah which means almost SGD1000 (assume SGD1=7000rupiah) do you think it's too expensive?

 

I still ride the bike when I go back to Indonesia for holiday.. :-)

 

Yoshi cost RM 2140 in Malaysia. Which is about SG$900. Malaysia just came up with the FI version. No worries bro, carbs are pretty much advanced nowadays.

 

Try asking Motorworld for the pricing for your exhaust and see how much they quote you.

Biting on the fray of my hair, I muse upon the way to find the oasis of evermore beyond the vertical horizon, I shall join the windupdeads in owl city, neither my safetysuit nor my red jumpsuit apparatus can save me, cuz I mistook a death cab for cutie in plain white T's...

My ninja is actually in Malaysia. I changed my tires in malaysia actually. I haven't ride a light weight sports bike in a while so I aint sure about the price. My michellin pilot road 2 for my FJR cost me $420 so i thought $320 might be reasonable until I heard what you paid for.

it seems like Yoshi in malay is SGD20-50 cheaper than in Indonesia. If that's the case then i will surely buy it in indonesia. nowadays the airport people in indonesia is annoying, they may stop me if I bring along things like muffler and of course at the end they ask for money..

I recommend getting them on Ebay, it's cheaper probably between 100-200SGD difference compare to getting them from shops..

So far I have seen Yoshimura and Leo Vince SBK available for the Ninja 250R, both would require Dynojet and tuning for max performance and hp improvements..Hope it helps cheers!

 

You mean legally?

 

Because there are lots of alternatives for our exhuast. R9, 2 brothers, V4, akaprovic, micron and some others....

 

Btw, tested my top, 165kph at ~ 12,000rpm. Can't even touch red line. Maybe can squeeze in extra 5kph without carrying my sling bag and wearing a full face but this is good enuf. Ex owner told me 150kph which is disappointing.

 

But thing is, its surprisingly stable at that speed and engine doesn't feel like tearing apart unlike my TZR back in the days.

Yes, legally. Dynojetting your bike exhaust will increase hp from 2-5hp, depending on which exhaust..

I never know Singapore also has R9.. Lots of Ninja250 riders use R9 because it's cheap.

 

I'm in Malaysia actually. Bike came with it. But as it can be seen, it doesn't improve performance alot, if it even improve any in the first place. But the sound and look of it is nice compared to the boring long straight cylinder.

 

Maybe need to set the carb to really get the extra horses but this is just a transport bike for me in replace of my FJR. May go track with it if there's a chance but won't spend too much on it.

My FC is out.

 

1st Test. (Petronas 95)

 

151km / 8.8L = 17.1 Km/L

 

Tacho needle hardly falls below 10,000 rpm. 20% of the time travelling at full throttle.

 

2nd Test (Shell V-Power)

 

296 Km / 12.2L = 24Km/L

 

Highway riding. Control max speed at 120kph. Only went 170 kph once.

 

It really came as a pleasant surprise. The fuel indication is already at 1 division to full empty but I only managed to squeeze in 12.2 L. Given this FC, I can travel over 400KM.

Hey there Don,

 

I personally advice you to get the bike from Looi's, reason is because they have better on hand service (not doubting excel), and bike servicing is also reliable...but if you decide to get the bike with the GPR exhaust check with the salesman whether has dynojetting been done. If not you will have to spend extra cash to service it, in which provides your bike slightly more HP (3-5hp). How much varies with different shops, so decide carefully.

If you decide to get the bike from Looi's, ask the salesman if they can throw in a Leo Vince exhaust package. It should be cheaper as compared to getting in after getting the bike. Try to ask for more freebies and free bike services before deciding..

Hope it helps in your future purchase!! Cheers!

Hey guys, just wanna know where the ninja is imported from cause i read somewhere that they're being assembled in thailand also. Perhaps the thailand one might be cheaper?

 

Hi Sweetie,

 

Majority of our local Ninja's are assembled in Thailand, so to allow easy replacement of parts. On the minority, so far there are those that are made in India, with a slight modification of it's fuel tank capacity ( 2 litres more?), you may expect them harder to find, and subsequently at a higher price. I have not seen it myself, but if you are interested you can ask around bike shops for more info. Please do share with us if you have any information. Cheers!!
