Novice and professional bikers alike come and rejoice! Kawasaki Motors Philippines has re-emerged with new releases in their popular series, with a wide array of bikes ranging from big bikes to lightweight motorbikes.
The “Kawasaki Roadgasmic Bike Launch” held at White Space Manila early this month marks the official launch of five new Kawasaki motorbikes. FHM babes Katrina Halili and Kitty Girls introduced us to a world of wild and aggressive rides. Kawasaki bikes and babes combined, we’ve never been treated with so much eye candy in one event.
This week we'll check out the first vehicle of the impressive pack: the Kawasaki Ninja 250R.

The Kawasaki Ninja series has always been a favorite among riders, be it pros or amateurs. But its latest addition, the Kawasaki Ninja 250R, is catching attention more than ever. For starters, it can run the quarter mile in 14.6 seconds at 88mph. Not the best record, sure, but its silky, smooth, six-speed transmission is so enjoyable you can’t help but never mind the numbers.
It has a slightly forward-slanting seat at 775 mm, and with raised handlebars, it makes for one easily-controlled bike. The bodywork is as stylish as one can get, with a slim tail cowl and a beautiful dual-lamp headlight design. The bike also has a good enough front cowling and windscreen for enough wind protection.
The Kawasaki Ninja 250R has a wheelbase of 1,400mm and a ground clearance of 130mm. But the best part in this bike is its budget-friendly price. It actually costs lower compared to its contemporaries.
