Kawasaki is a world renowned Japanese motorcycle manufacturing company which is a part of Kawasaki Heavy Industries. Kawasaki has finally unveiled a new single-cylinder version of the Ninja 250, a fully-faired sports bike called Ninja RR Mono. The 250cc sports bike was showcased at an event in Jakarta, Indonesia on February 14, 2014. The bike has received positive reviews all across the media and bike enthusiasts due to its stunning looks like Ninja 300R while maintaining a good power and performance figures. It will be available in the Indonesian market by March 2014 with the same name, but the availability and price details about other regions of Asia are not yet disclosed. One thing that is certain that the bike will be available in different parts of Asian market under two different names, Ninja RR Mono for some markets and Ninja 250SL for some other. It will arrive in the Indian market probably by the end of this year. Let's check out this bike in detail.

Design and Style

Kawasaki Ninja RR Mono has got some remarkable features and eye-catching design elements which are worth mentioning. It includes a single bright halogen headlight, black rear view mirrors, front and rear turn indicators, nicely positioned handlebar and footrests, a tube type diamond frame chassis, a step-up seat, a beautiful tail light, a stylish exhaust, a well sculpted fuel tank, 10-spoke and 17-inch wheels with 100/80 section tires at front and 130/70 section tires at rear, a maintenance free battery, self-start and many other features. The bike has a length of 1935mm, a width of 685mm and a height of 1075mm as its dimensions and has a large wheelbase of 1330mm for a stable ride. It has a good ground clearance of 165mm for a bump-free ride and a kerb weight of 151kgs along with a fuel tank capacity of 11liters.

Instrument Console

The instrument console is also an all-digital one with a LCD display unit to show a digital fuel gauge, tachometer and speedometer, digital trip meters, tell-tales, and the low fuel, oil and battery indicators.

Engine and Gearbox

Kawasaki Ninja RR Mono has got a 249cc, 4-stroke, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel injected, DOHC based engine with a maximum power of 27.62 bhp at 9700rpm and a maximum torque of 22.6 Nm at 8200rpm and is mated with a 6-speed gearbox transmission to give a top speed of almost 153kmph.

The suspension system consists of 37mm telescopic forks at front and 5-way preload adjustable monoshock with a uni-track linkage at rear. ABS is optional on the Ninja RR Mono, though it would increase the price of the bike by Rs. 25000-30000 (approx.), but ABS is a must-have safety feature in a bike of this segment.

Kawasaki Ninja RR Mono will be available with a different name (Ninja 250SL) in some parts of Asia in four beautiful shades which includes White, Red, Green and Yellow at an expected ex-showroom, Delhi price of INR 1.95-2.15 lakh, which may vary.
