Kawasaki has finally taken the wraps off the ZX-25R. The motorcycle was launched in Indonesia where it goes on sale immediately.
We’ve talked extensively about this model in the past, covering each little bit of info that was unveiled. Now, we finally have the complete specs and pricing (in Indonesian Rupiah). The ZX-25R is offered in two trim levels: standard and Special Edition.
The ZX-25R features a trellis frame housing the 249cc, inline four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that produces 49.3bhp (50.3bhp with RAM Air) at 15,500rpm and 22.9Nm of peak torque at 14,500rpm. The engine is paired to a six-speed gearbox with an up and down Kawasaki Quick Shifter on the Special Edition.
Keeping aloft are Show SFF Big Piston USD adjustable forks and a horizontal backlink rear shock with adjustable preload. It gets a 310mm brake disc with a four-piston caliper in front and a 220mm disc with a single-piston caliper at the back.
The rider gets a combination analog tachometer with LCD multi-info panel. The display features the usual standard gauges and readouts along with a gear indictor and ride mode display. It comes with various power modes, ABS and a traction control system.
All trim levels get the twin-pod LED headlight, LED taillight, and split-style saddle.
The standard version is only available in Metallic Spark Black. The Special Edition, however, comes in three livery choices: Lime Green/Ebony, Metallic Spark Black/Pearl Flat Stardust White, and Candy Plasma Blue/Metallic Spark Blue.
The initial pricing we revealed was just a little bit off the mark. The standard model is priced at IDR 96,000,000 (PhP328,579) while the Special Edition is priced at IDR 112,900,000 (PhP386,388). Kawasaki Indonesia is also requiring a IDR 5,000,000 (PhP17,115) reservation fee.
With this new pricing, the ZX-25R is still more expensive than the Ninja 400 locally. However, the Special Edition is just above the current local pricing of the Kawasaki Z650. Does this new pricing and specs make it a more tempting proposition?
