- 2021 Kawasaki Z250 unveiled
- Gets two new colour options
- Prices and other details remain unchanged
Kawasaki has unveiled the 2021 edition of its quarter-litre street naked, the Z250, for the international markets. The motorcycle has received two new colours while remaining unchanged in terms of bodywork, features and hardware.
The newly introduced paint schemes for the baby kwacker include ‘Pearl Night Shade Teal x Metallic Flat Spark Black’ and ‘Candy Cardinal Red x Metallic Flat Spark Black.’ The overall styling of the motorcycle is closely inspired by the bigger Z models comprising of muscular body panels with sharp edges.
Powering the Kawasaki Z250 is a 248cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine which belts out 36.5bhp of power and 22.5Nm of peak torque. This unit is mated to a six-speed gearbox with assist and slipper clutch. The bike rides on 17-inch alloy wheels shod with 110 and 140 section tyres at the front and rear, respectively. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks and a monoshock while stopping power comes from a disc at both ends with dual-channel ABS setup.
Kawasaki has kept the price of the Z250 unchanged in Japan where it costs 610,500 yen (approx. Rs 4.3 lakh). The motorcycle was on sale in India until last year, but it was discontinued due to consistently dwindling sales. Kawasaki is unlikely to bring it back to our shores anytime soon.
