8 2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250R..!! Bring this one to India please.

Kawasaki shows off its new 2008 Ninja 250R.. is it coming to India..??

Old Ninja 250R and the New 2008 Version

Kawasaki finally decides to revamp the looks of its smallest ninja, the 250R. And the result is nothing sort of stunning. The new 2008 Ninja 250R has the designs cues of the bigger Ninja's.

Kawasaki is the only Japanese bike maker among the big four (Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki) that doesn't have a presence in India. With a price of around Rs.1,40,000 (without custom duty of course) and bike weighing around 151 Kgs, I think Kawasaki has the right product for India.

The 223 cc Hero Honda Karizma and the 220 cc Bajaj Pulsar has developed the Indian two wheeler market for quarter litre bikes to follow.

Although Kawasaki doesn't have a single model in India, it still has a technical collaboration with Bajaj Auto. Maybe Bajaj auto can bring in the Ninja 250R as knocked down kits, assemble them here in India and use their "Pro Biking" showrooms to sell the Ninja 250R.

So is the 2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250R headed for India..??

Probably the 2008 Auto Expo might have a few answers.. till then Pray Real Hard..!!

Guys!! spam the Bajaj Official site with the requests to bring this bike to India. Here is the link http://www.bajajauto.com/1024/contact/index.asp

If we can show them that a lot of people are interested in this bike, they will at least consider it and give it a try.

Frankly speaking, why is the headlight of this model so damn simple? Even the pulsar 220 front light arrangement looks much more sophisticated than this plain jane front of Ninja. Rest of the things may be good though.
