The 2021 Ninja ZX-25R is an incredibly exciting new model unveiled at the 2019 Tokyo Motorcycle Show which revitalises a genre that disappeared from the motorcycling world for over 20 years.
The famous 250cc inline screamers of the 90s were a popular import from the Japanese domestic market that provided spirited riding from a small, high-revving inline 4 engine.
The 2021 Ninja ZX-25R is intended for the Indonesian and Japanese markets, therefore it is not confirmed that it is possible to road-register in New Zealand.
The Ninja ZX-25R was never intended to be a learner motorcycle or carry a price point in mind. It’s a pure adrenaline machine developed to satisfy the Kawasaki principles of rideology. The ZX-25R is not designed for convenience and comfort. Neither is it a soulless machine that behaves the same way no matter who is at the controls. The ZX-25R is designed for riders, to treat all 5 senses and reward the rider with precise response to offer a fun and rewarding experience. The ZX-25R carries the same ZX-6R and ZX-10R DNA to deliver on our promise to Let the Good Times Roll.
Kawasaki New Zealand would like to gather your feedback on this exciting new model and what our customers expectations are. The feedback so far has been unprecedented.
Your feedback will be used to ascertain the demand and interest from potential buyers. This helps us ensure feasibility on a model that carries a premium price point that enters uncharted territory in the small-capacity category.
