Description

Rolling proof that less really can be more.

The Ninja® 250R has always been a great place for beginning riders to get started, but modern sportbike technology means the littlest Ninja is a great choice for more experienced riders as well — especially ones experienced at getting the most for their motorcycle dollar. While its twin-cylinder engine might be small, light and compact, its eight-valve head packs maximum power into every rpm. The 250R screams Ninja performance, from its sleek full fairing and 17-inch wheels, to its Uni-Trak® rear suspension and triple petal-disc brakes.

Standard Features

DOHC, 249 cc, Parallel Twin-cylinder Engine
 Compact parallel-twin design offers good mass centralization for superior handling  
 Tuned to deliver smooth, step-free power with an emphasis on low and mid-range power for rider-friendly response  
 Pistons feature reinforced heads and strengthening in the pin boss area for increased durability  
 Thick piston (longitudinally) rings help prevent oil consumption  
 Combustion chamber design optimized to maximize combustion efficiency and reduce emissions  
 Ample high-rpm performance will please riders using the full range of the engine  
Cylinder Head
 Intake and exhaust ports contribute to good off-idle response and smooth power delivery  
 Valve timing and lift designed for strong low and mid-range torque  
 Direct valve actuation helps ensure reliable high-rpm operability  
 Thin heads and stems on valves for reduced reciprocating weight  
Carburetor
 Fine-tuned twin Keihin CVK30 carburetors offer good power feel and low fuel consumption  
Reduced Mechanical Noise
 Automatic adjusting cam chain tensioner eliminates mechanical noise caused by a loose cam chain and reduces power-robbing friction loss  
 Eliminating mechanical noise allows the use of a freer flowing exhaust for a better performance  
 Complex construction with reinforcing ribs helps eliminate airbox reverberation and reduces intake noise  
 Air filter accessible from the side, for easy replacement  
Exhaust System
 2-into-1 system contributes to the Ninja 250R’s low and mid-range torque and smooth, step-free power curve  
 Slightly upswept silencer extensively tested to determine chamber size, connecting pipe length and diameter to achieve least noise and most power  
 Meets strict emissions with dual catalyzers; 1 in the collector pipe and the other in the silencer  
 Using 2 catalyzers minimizes the power loss  
 Positioning the first catalyzer as close to the exhaust ports maximizes its efficiency as well  
Liquid Cooling
 Latest generation Denso radiator offers superior cooling with minimal space and weight  
 Ring-fan uses a quiet-running motor that also saves space  
 Fins on the lower side of the crankcase further helps cool the engine  
6-speed Transmission / Clutch
 Involute splines reduce friction and backlash between gears and shafts for easier gear meshing and smooth shifting under power  
 Spring-type clutch damper reduces jerkiness at very low speeds and minimizes shocks when rolling on and off the throttle for a smoother clutch feel  
 Paper-base friction plates help increase clutch durability  
Chassis
 Sturdy and durable diamond-style frame of thick-walled steel tubing offers confidence-inspiring stability at both high and low speeds  
 Beefy swingarm bracket contributes to the frame’s rigidity and helps achieve an ideal chassis stiffness balance  
 Square-tube swingarm with a 60 x 30 mm cross-section further adds to rigidity  
Suspension
 37 mm telescopic front fork with firm settings contribute to the Ninja 250R’s smooth, stable handling and enhanced ride control  
 Uni-Trak® rear suspension complements the rigid frame and provides great road holding ability  
 Rear shock features 5-way adjustable preload, enabling ride height to be maintained whether riding solo or with a passenger  
Wheels
 Features 17 in. wheels like its larger supersport brothers  
 Low-profile sportbike tires on wide rims contribute to its easy, neutral handling at low speeds  
Brakes
 Large-diameter, 290 mm front petal disc and a balanced action 2-piston caliper offer excellent braking performance and a natural, direct feeling at the lever  
 2-piston caliper grips the rear 220 mm petal disc  
Ergonomics
 Natural riding position with slightly forward-slanting seat and wide, raised handlebars  
Bodywork
 Styling, fit and finish of striking full-fairing bodywork match its Ninja supersport siblings  
 Aggressive dual-lamp headlight design, slim tail cowl and separate seats further enhance the supersport look  
 Front cowling and windscreen offer the rider a substantial amount of wind protection  
 2 helmet holders conveniently located under the rear seat  
 Under-seat storage can hold a U-lock or similar device  
 2 hooks under the tail and the rear passenger pegs provide anchor points for securing items to the rear of the bike  
Instrumentation
 Instrument panel features an easy-to-read, large-face analog speedometer along with an analog tachometer, odometer, trip meter, fuel gauge and warning lights
