The Japanese are always known for making some of the best sounding quarter-liter bikes in the history of motorcycles. Starting with the 2-stroke Suzuki RGV250 and then the 4-stroke Honda CBR250RR, Yamaha FZR250, and Kawasaki ZXR250. These were some of the best performing motorcycles beginner motorcyclists could buy under 250cc producing over 50-60hp. And now, we are getting the new Kawasaki ZX-25R, a 4-cylinder 250cc screaming monster redlining at 17,000 RPMs.

Unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show last year, Kawasaki is already accepting bookings for the ZX-25R in Indonesia. The company has also released a small video on youtube which shows the motorcycle howling away at 17,000 RPMs and reaching a speed of 162kmph! The high revving 4-cylinder sound is definitely music to the ears.

The new Kawasaki ZX-25R comes loaded with tech. The motorcycle comes with huge, radially-mounted monoblock brake calipers along with beefy separate function upside-down Showa big piston forks. It also gets traction control and switchable power modes along with a quick shifter. The tiny 250cc inline-4 engine can be expected to produce up to a staggering 60hp of power. This makes it more powerful than the Kawasaki Ninja 400 on sale in India. Now, the Ninja 400, sans all the tech itself costs Rs 5 lakh ex-showroom in India. Hence Kawasaki has no plans to bring the ZX-25R to the Indian markets as of now.
