Kawasaki Indonesia has confirmed that the Japanese bike maker has no plans to renew the Kawasaki Ninja 150 brand name. The development is brought to us by Iwanbanaran.


Producing around 29 PS of power and 21 Nm of torque, the Kawasaki Ninja 150’s 148 cc mill was a two-stroke. With emission norms stricter than ever, two-strokes are not coming back. Kawasaki believes that the Kawasaki Ninja 250SL is more of an indirect replacement of the entry level, two-stroke powerhouse. The Kawasaki Z250SL is powered by a 249 cc single cylinder four-stroke engine coupled to a 6-speed gearbox. The engine is capable of producing 28 PS at 9,700 rpm and 22.6 Nm of peak torque at 8,200 rpm. The DOHC mill gets fuel injection and tips the scales at 151 kg. The fuel tank can store 11-litre of petrol.
