2004 Kawasaki Ninja 250R Review

2004 Kawasaki Ninja 250R

Both fun and affordable, it appeals to riders of all skill levels…

Power for the NINJA 250R comes from a high-revving, liquid-cooled, in-line twin-cylinder four-stroke engine featuring dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder. It delivers smooth, predictable power that’s perfect for new motorcyclists, yet its 14,000-rpm redline and six-speed transmission will bring a grin to the face of the most experienced sportbike rider. Like its larger siblings, the NINJA 250R features an aerodynamic faring, Kawasaki’s UNI-TRAK® progressive rear suspension and high-performance disc brakes. It also has a low seat height for confident stability while stopped. Other features include an easy-to-read instrument panel, positive neutral finder, centerstand and pop-up bungee hooks.

The NINJA® 250R may be the smallest sportbike in the Kawasaki lineup, but it is also one of the best values for riders who want a high-tech engine, lightweight sportbike handling and distinctive NINJA styling.
