    I imagine they'll come to be hated by mechanics just like all the previous 250 4s have.

    Sure, it wouldn't be the first time I made a successful business out of a lack of talent & a negative attitude by others in a certain field.
    These attitudes are usually borne of a lack of understanding, resulting in a fear of the topic.

    Will be interesting to see...
    a) what the HP, torque and weight specs are. (plus redline )
    b) Will Kawasaki NZ bring it here as a model.
    c) and if so, what will the price be.

    It's probably going have more HP than my Ninja 400, possibly less torque, weigh about the same and cost considerably more.
    So yeah, potentially appeal to a small market but bloody great to see regardless.
    Had a GSXR400 a couple of years ago, what a hoot to ride those screaming fours are!

    Yep - I'd be surprised if Kawasaki NZ did bring it here owing to it's place in the market compared to the Ninja and Z400 models. A shame in a way as I suspect it'll be a real enthusiast's machine.

    This Visor Down article suggests a 46-47 HP limit to meet the Pommy A2 licence classes which are pretty similar in limits to our LAMS bikes.
    If Kawasaki intend it to be an International release model then they would have been silly not to do this, but it makes it a bit boring for the rest of us on a full licence.
    Article also suggests a 17K redline. That's put a bit of a sag in my Y fronts...

    Another clip from Kawasaki Indonesia. The bike wasn't on the Kawasaki stand at the EICMA show recently so it's looking like it might be an Asian only release. That would be a shame, hope I'm wrong.

    That's very exciting. I wonder how much power will be killed by emission regulations?

    Yeah, because all other sports bikes are losing loads of power as the emissions regs tighten up. Oh, hang on.

    Australia misses out... NZ??

    I emailed both Kawasaki Australia and Kawasaki NZ this week regarding the availability of this new model next year.
    Haven't heard from Kawi NZ but here's the reply from across the ditch:

    "The 2020 Ninja ZX-25R will not be coming into Australia. The bike is not suited to the Australian market thus we won't be bringing it in."

    Doesn't bode well for us then as we tend to follow their lead for better or worse.
    I dont know if it's because it doesn't fit into the LAMS regs or what but it's a real shame. Could have got a really exciting racing class going around this model too.

    It's not the end for someone that really wants one.
    You can import anything you want. Just get one from a R/H drive market.
    It would almost certainly work out cheaper than getting one from a NZ dealer anyway.
