Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R: Which Colour To Buy?

If it were to come to India, which colour would you pick?'
The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R has been quite the rage for nearly nine months now. And why shouldn’t it be? It is a hot 250cc supersport with an inline-four engine and rider aids that will put 650cc motorcycles to shame! Finally, the Ninja ZX-25R went on sale in Indonesia at a staggering price of IDR 96,000,000 (around Rs 4.99 lakh) for the Std variant and IDR 112,900,000 (Rs 5.97 lakh) for the SE variant. If it were to ever come to India, it would only get more expensive as it would be a CBU product. If the bike were to grace our shores though, here’s a look at its colour options and what we’d pick if we were buying one:
Metallic Spark Black:
Probably the most understated and blandest option of the lot, the Ninja ZX-25R does not look its best in this shade. Also considering that this colour is only available on the standard trim that comes sans ABS and extra goodies, it is also the least tech loaded version. If Kawasaki were to bring this colour option to India, it would need to equip it with ABS at least to comply with our regulations.
Metallic Spark Black/Pearl Flat Stardust White:
Kawasaki has taken the black colour option and added a few red and white elements to spruce up the look. The dark red frame complements the black fairing quite well while the white and grey vinyls add a bit of pop. This may not be the most conventional colour for a Kwacker but that’s what makes it distinct and there could be a few takers for it.
Candy Plasma Blue/Metallic Spark Black:
We have seen this blue shade on the Indianised Ninja 300 but Kawasaki has taken a rather tastier approach on the ZX-25R. It is almost reminiscent of the latest Suzuki MotoGP machine, the GSX-RR, but there is more black to be found on the baby Kwacker.
This is basically the Kawasaki Racing Team livery. It has looked delectable on all Kawasaki faired motorcycles and the same holds true for this quarter-litre pocket rocket. The latest iteration of the KRT scheme gets a nice black honeycomb sticker layer with the bike’s name plastered right above it in gold.
Our pick: Candy Plasma Blue/Metallic Spark Black
While it would be a sin not to get a Kawasaki in green, we would happily commit one by opting for the blue option.
