4 Cylinders, 250cc bike! Sounds crazy? Read what Kawasaki is planning

Snapshot: A Japanese bike magazine called Young Magazine has posted a photograph of the rendered images of Kawasaki Ninja ZX25R in a stunning looking green color.

Somewhere between 1998 to 2004, Kawasaki used to sell a 4 inline cylinder quarter liter bike called ZXR250. It was not a universally sold bike , neither did it created a stir among countries where it was sold. But if sources are to be believed, Kawasaki is undergoing a secret development of all new 4 cylinder 250cc engine to be utilized in a bike what is currently known as Ninja ZX25R.

A Japanese bike magazine called Young Magazine has posted a photograph of the rendered images of Kawasaki Ninja ZX25R in a stunning looking green color.

Certain features and design cues to look forward in this new mean looking machine would be:

1. All new fairing design.
2. LED Headlights similar to Ducati Panigale.
3. All new speedometer design.
4. Ignition threshold of the tank like Kawasaki ER6N.
5. Slipper Clutch.
6. Power that would be more than R25.
7. Chassis change
8. Change in wheel design.

The 1996 model ZXR 250 had an in-line four cylinder, DOHC, liquid cooled, 16 valve carbureted engine, which churned out 45PS (at 15000 rpm) and 25.5Nm of torque at 11500rpm. This insane machine was redlined at 19000rpm and weighed just 144kg. These figures clearly suggest that the bike was way ahead of its time.

We expect something similar by Kawasaki this time also. Read our already posted Kawasaki H2 story here.
