The long wait by most beginner riders in Malaysia has now turned to reality when Kawasaki Malaysia launched the bike yesterday (24 September 2013) at the Elite Speedway. But somehow, after all these years of making review films to the green team of Malaysia; we were once again left out from the invitation list to the launch of the long awaited Z250.
But all that aside, as a portal or platform to motorcycle enthusiast out there; we are passionate in sharing and giving out the information that we have regarding the bike even if we were not present to the launch event. The first of the thing that everyone must be curious to know is the price. Kawasaki yesterday announced the price will be set at RM21,589 which from our perspective, looks to be a very strong contender with the current hot selling KTM DUKE 200.
The baby of the Z800 are now looking to be a much more accommodating to the local beginner riders who are looking for a steady bike with stunning looks and ease of usage to be a daily commuter. With the introduction of three colors from RED, WHITE and the traditional GREEN, the Z250 are looking to grab some pieces of the cake in the beginner level of motorcycle market.
As much as we want to share about our insight on the new Z250, we are unable to give a proper write ups on this piece due to our uninvited circumstance. But, we are confident that the bike will definitely be as good as the Ninja 250 similar to the one that our test rider had tested previously (CLICK HERE TO WATCH). Therefore, we are looking forward at what else can the Z250 give us to enjoy the already great 250cc platform.
For that, we are hoping that everyone will stay tune with us in Malaysian Riders whether it’s on our website, on our FACEBOOK PAGEand our high priority YOUTUBE CHANNEL. Please do stay close with us via all these channels and medium to get the latest updates and the future review on all motorcycle that we can get our hands on.
Going the distance is really a suitable phrases for Kawasaki in this situation where they are really making a huge effort in trying to capture the market of a small and practical bikes for daily usage. The new Z250 was officially unveiled not too far away from our shore which is in Indonesia and it is anticipated to be here in Malaysia not too long from now. But as for now, we haven’t really got any official words from the people of Kawasaki Malaysia regarding this bike here.
The new Z250 is basically a Ninja 250 with the fairing replaced with a Z800 looks and that is basically it. We already expecting the International media from the European segment are starting to discuss about the possibility of a Z300 being manufactured to really suit their local markets and it is very likely to be happening for them. The technical specification of the Z250 should be similar to the Ninja 250 and we can already expect the bike to be in the same range of the announced Ninja 250 price.
We were not shocked by the announcement of the new Z250 as it is only a logical way of Kawasaki in order to become a dominant force in smaller capacity motorcycle range. We really hope that they wouldn’t sacrifice the characteristic and the soul of the bike by overproducing the bike until it becomes so mainstream and ultimately becoming nothing special to the riders.
For now, we are awaiting for Kawasaki Malaysia to announce about the bike to be here in Malaysia as we are yet to see the new Ninja 250 being sold here in Malaysia. It sure has been taking quite a while for them to finalize the bike for our local market and this is quite puzzling for us as to why hasn’t it be on the road for now. Whatever it is, we really hopes that all our followers will stay tune with us for more updates and please do LIKE and SUBSCRIBE to our FACEBOOK and YOUTUBE CHANNEL.
