2015 Z250SL ABS
Kawasaki’s latest addition to its aggressive Super naked Z series is the Z250SL. Powered by a 249 cm³, 4-stroke Single mounted in an original trellis frame, the newest Z offers sporty performance in a slim, lightweight and compact package. Designed for the sports-minded urban commuter, this lighter, alternative to the Z300 ABS offers competitive Ninja-based performance, nimble handling, and aggressive ergonomics – an ensemble sure to turn heads as you navigate the concrete jungle. Available in both ABS and non-ABS models for 2015.
The Z250SL’s 4-stroke single-cylinder engine offers sporty performance in a slim, lightweight and compact package. It delivers a robust midrange and its quick-revving character allows the engine to spin up quickly to the high-rpm range, where the engine really sings.
Smooth-shifting six-speed transmission complements the Z250SL’s sporty street performance, offering a gear for every situation. The clutch engages smoothly and disengages cleanly, making it easy to operate for all riders and optimising clutch feel for on-road performance.
The ø38 mm throttle body contributes to the quick-revving character. Fuel injection ensures stable fuel delivery and ensures excellent starting characteristics, whether the engine is hot or cold.
With the pipe size of each component of the frame carefully selected, a slim package that offers both nimbleness and good stability was achieved. Main tubes formed from high-tensile steel with a diameter of ø31.8 mm contribute to the frame’s rigidity balance and slim dimensions.
Large-diameter 290 mm front petal disc brake operated by a 2-piston calliper delivers powerful braking and a natural feel at the lever. The Z250SL is available in both ABS and non-ABS variants.
Like other models in the Z Series, the Z250SL’s aggressive styling hints at its sporty potential. A dynamic design created by its slim, hourglass figure is complemented by extremely lightweight looks care of sharp, close-fit bodywork and an original trellis frame.
