India is about to get a new motorcycle, the Honda CBR250R, and we can see that the specs has the 2011 Kawasaki Ninja 250R at a disadvantage, which we will get to a little later. Both bikes are entry-level 250c machines and will be a challenge to see what riders choose.
The baby Ninja has had the market to itself thanks to aggressive pricing and awesome specs. However, Honda have a lot of money and experience behind them, so it was obvious that they would want to mount a challenge — one that they have done and then some.
The 2011 Kawasaki Ninja 250R keeps up the tradition by being the fastest 250cc bike on the Indian market, but the 2011 Honda CBR250R has an ace up its sleeve, and that is with better drivability. There are a number of reasons for this, and being much lighter certainly is a key factor.
The Indian Cars and Motorcycles Blog believes that when it comes down to it, most people will go for looks, and the Ninja seems to win that round. So does it come down to looks, or will the disadvantage of the Kawasaki Ninja 250R make you choose the Honda CBR250R.
