Kawasaki ZX-25R Overview
The Kawasaki ZX-25R is the latest addition to the Ninja sportbike lineup following the same visual aesthetics of its bigger siblings with an aggressive riding position and Kawasaki racing livery designed to make a statement in the race track. This high-revving inline-4 sportbike was officially launched in the Philippines on July 31, 2020.
The ZX-25R harks back to the powerful inline-4 engines that powered legendary Kawasaki sportbikes in the past decades but in a more compact and updated package. It comes with 37 mm Showa SFF Big Piston adjustable inverted forks in the front and a horizontal preload-adjustable backlink mono-shock in the rear. Stopping duties are provided for by a 310 mm brake disk with a four-piston caliper for the front and a 220 mm disc with a single-piston caliper for the rear.
This Kawasaki screamer is powered by a liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder engine that’s capable of producing 50 hp (with ram air) at 15,500 RPM and 22.9 Nm of torque at 14,500 RPM. It is mated to a 6-speed transmission with an assist and slipper clutch for a lighter pull as well as a Kawasaki Quickshifter for even faster and smoother gear changes and even quicker lap times. It gives a much wider rev range of up to more than 15,000 RPM with most of its power delivery felt from its low to mid-range level.
It comes standard with dual-channel ABS, and Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC). Its dash comes with a combination of an analog tachometer and digital LCD multi-info panel giving the rider all the standard gauges, readouts, gear indicators. Lastly, it has two selectable riding modes with Low, and Full.
