GWRRA-Regiona – 200-250cc motorized engines are often used as targets by new motorbikes who want to “go up in class”. Usually they start motorized with a low cc, then move to a 150cc engine motor sport and then to the class above. For motorists who want to “grade” 200-250cc, here are a number of motorbikes from various brands and variants that can be weighed to have.
- Kawasaki Ninja And Z Series
This Japanese factory arguably offers the most 250cc motorbike choices on the local market. Kawasaki Motor Indonesia (KMI) is also arguably the first Brand Holder Agent (APM) to officially import this quarter-liter motor sport class to Indonesia. Currently there are two main choices for those of you who want to try out a Kawasaki 250cc motorbike, which are single and double cylinder engines. For the single cylinder, there is the Ninja RR Mono, which has been circulating since February 2014, and the naked version of the Z250SL was released in May 2014. Both use the 249 cc injection engine, DOHC with a maximum power of 28 hp. At present both of them are the mainstay of KMI sales in Indonesia to replace the 150cc Ninja RR 2-stroke motorbike which is no longer being produced. The Mono RR is aimed at sports motor fans while the Z250SL is aimed at everyday users who need agile and aggressive motors. KMI sold this motorbike at the most expensive price of Rp.47.8 million, and the lowest at Rp.41.5 million. For fans of two-cylinder motorcycles, there is the sport style Ninja 250 and the Z250 which is a naked version for urban users, as the blogger Iwan Banaran explained.
This type of sport fairing motorbike had undergone an engine transformation from carbuator to injection in 2012. Now, with 249cc engine specifications, 2 cylinders, DOHC, this motorbike is said to be capable of running at 32 horse power equivalent.
Ninja 250 is sold in the price range of IDR58.8-69.4 million OTR Jakarta, while the Z series is priced at IDR53.4 million for the standard type, and IDR59.4 for the type that is equipped with ABS type brakes.
- Kawasaki Pulsar 200ns
This product is a partnership between Kawasaki and vehicle manufacturers from India, Bajaj Auto Limited (BAL). BAL had previously planted its own business in Indonesia, through Pulsar 135, 180 and 220 products. However, over time, since the end of 2013 the Hindustan country name finally decided to entrust their trade to KMI. However, this joint venture does not seem to benefit both parties. Automotive Kompas reportedly, differences in marketing strategies are thought to be the cause of the breakdown in the relationship between KMI and BAL. Pulsar 200 NS with a price tag of Rp23.9 million, which is included in a different product segment focused on KMI, which mostly markets premium motorcycles. In fact, in June KMI cut this price up to Rp. 15 million to spend the stock of motorcycle products that still use this carburetor engine. However, we consider this model to be your choice for those who want to experience the character of streetfighter motorcycles, but at an affordable price.
- Kawasaki D-TrackerX and KLX 250S
The KMI quarter-liter motor segment is finally equipped with a range of off-road motorcycle products intended for those of you who want to feel the sensation of motorized adventure on extreme terrain. D-Tracker X and KLX 250S look similar, even equipped with a similar engine, namely a 249cc carburetor engine, DOHC single cylinder, 6 speed. But the uses are clearly different. D-Tracker X is more positioned itself as an all-terrain motor, which can go aggressively on the asphalt, but is also able to compromise on gravel (rocky and sandy). Meanwhile the pure KLX model is intended for extreme terrain. This can be seen from the contours of the tire that is messy and prominent. KMI released the D-Tracker X for Rp.63.4 million, while for the KLX 250S model, it costs more than Rp.66.6 million.
