Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R price announced and pre-ordering is now open in the 3rd market, New Zealand. A piece of good news for the ZX-25R fans?
Kawasaki Indonesia was set to launch the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R in April. Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the launch in Indonesia. Aside from this, the pandemic affected the launch of the bike in its birthplace, Japan too. However, good news for us, the ZX-25R is now officially moving into the 3rd country – New Zeland!
In New Zealand, the ZX-25R is priced at $15,990 NZD, which is around 44,490 MYR or 10,400 USD. The ZX-25R wouldn’t be stocked in New Zealand; instead, it would be imported based on pre-ordering (which has already begun). The delivery of the bike for New Zealand is scheduled for December; which means the ZX-25R would most likely be unveiled in other Asian markets by July-August.
A few months earlier we speculated the price to be around MYR 40,000 / USD 10,000 range and now the official announcement gives us a closer look at the actual price of the ZX-25R. For a 250cc bike, the price might seem a bit too much but given the production cost for a 4 cylinder monster of this kind and the fact that the ZX-25R has no direct rival; the price doesn’t look so bad.
Did you know, ZX-25R fans in Malaysia are spamming Kawasaki Malaysia’s social media to bring the ZX-25R into Malaysia? Yes, it might sound crazy but this clearly shows how fans around the world are eagerly waiting or trying to get the ZX-25R roll into their country.
