The new Z250SL is Kawasaki’s latest LAMS edition to the aggressive supernaked Z series. Weighing in at a mere 148kg, the Z250SL is a light weight contender that has been designed for the sports-minded commuter. Living up to the ‘Super Light’ abbreviation in its name, this compact machine features the reputable Ninja-based performance and sexy ergonomics that the Z series has become known for.
Powered by a 249cm3 liquid cooled, 4-stroke Single.
Strong low to mid-range torque and a quick-revving engine will delight riders. The top end delivers strong power and extends well into the over-rev without dropping off suddenly. The Z250SL is designed to meet the needs of a daily machine or a weekend companion.
The Z250SL has subtle styling differences to its siblings in the Z range. Onlookers will notice the contrast of flared and thin sections that give the bike a striking hourglass figure. Tight-fitting bodywork with a fuel tank that slants forwards, radiates an edgy style to the Z250SL.
Sharp and nimble handling is granted with the lightweight wheels, slim tyres and flat-style handlebar. A graceful trellis frame provides a light structure without compromising strength while the linkage-equipped Uni-Trak rear suspension delivers great road holding ability. Petal disc brakes and twin-piston callipers provide ample stopping power and instil confidence in riders of all skill levels.
Style does not compromise comfort on the Z250SL. A radiator fan cover is located behind the radiator and directs hot air down and away from the rider, significantly increasing comfort when stuck in heavy traffic. 5-way rear preload adjustability allows riders to adjust the rear ride height, as well as setting up the bike to accommodate a passenger or luggage. Confidence is granted when pulling up to a stop by a slim seat that maximises ground reach.
When you don’t want to settle for less, when every heart beat is around the next corner, dare to dream with the Kawasaki Z250SL.
