2 Kawasaki Z250 launched in Indonesia..!! Do we smell a Z300 as well?

Kawasaki launches the naked version of the 2013 Ninja 250 as Z250 in Indonesia..

Kawasaki has launched the Z250 in Indonesia, the Z series of Kawasaki is its Naked series of bikes. The Z250 joins the naked stables of Kawasaki along with models like the Z1000 and Z800. When looked head on, the Z250 resembles a mini version of the Z800. 

Lighter than the Ninja 250 by 4 Kgs and making the same amount of power and torque, the Z250 is essentially the naked/stripped version of the 2013 Ninja 250. The seat height is also delightfully low at 785 mm.



Kawasaki once more showed how important is Indonesia in its Global plans. Just like it had launched the 2013 Ninja 250 in Indonesia first than anywhere else in the world, it has again launched the Z250 in Indonesia.. where else?

Apparently Kawasaki sells the most number of the Ninja 250R in Indonesia more than anywhere in the world..!! Quite impressive i'd say for what essentially is a step thru - automatic scooter market.




Ahem, Ahem.. Kawasaki what about a Z300..??

Although Kawasaki hasn't hinted anything, it is very likely that a Z300 might make its appearance as well. Just like there is a 300 version of the 2013 Ninja 250 for markets like the US/UK/Australia. The Z250 like the 2013 Ninja 250/300 is being manufactured in Thailand.

India Kawasaki Motors (Bajaj just offers its KTM showrooms and service center to IKM..), please bring the Ninja 300 as well as a Z300 to India in 2013..!!
