2018 Kawasaki Ninja 250 Rendering by Young Machine
2018 Kawasaki Ninja 250 was recently rendered by Young Machine, bringing a tough competitor to Honda CBR250RR. Undoubtedly, CBR is the most appealing motorcycle of its segment currently but if things go the same way as imagined, Kawasaki could win over the crown of the most aggressive motorcycle in the quarter liter segment.
The front seems to be inspired from the current generation design but gets addition of full LED headlight, Black inserts, sharp nose and 2017 Ninja 650 inspired center section.

The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Indian market currently has Z250 with the smaller and Ninja 300 with the bigger engine. They are even two of the most affordable models in the company lineup that extend to INR 69.80 lakh for the flagship Ninja H2R.
