The Kawasaki Z250 is based on the second generation Kawasaki Ninja 250R sports model, inheriting the frame, engine and chassis.

The Kawasaki Z250 was based on an in-line 2-cylinder liquid-cooled engine with a volume of 249 cc and 31 hp. power and 21 Nm of torque. The maximum performance is at 8500-11000 rpm.

The frame of the motorcycle is a tubular steel structure, the suspensions are a conventional telescopic fork at the front and a progressive monoshock at the rear. Brake system - disc, front 1 disc 290 mm, rear - 1 disc 220 mm. Calipers - 2-piston.

Since 2015, based on Kawasaki Ninja 300, a new model has been proposed - Kawasaki Z300. In the Asian market, the Z250 version continued to be sold, which by this year received minor changes - ABS in standard equipment, as well as a slipping clutch with an assistant (Assist & Slipper Clutch).

As of 2018, the Kawasaki Z250 is out of production (there is a 2017 model on the market), although no end of production has been announced. Most likely, the resumption of production will be in the near future.
