Like all race-prepped bikes, this ZX-25R features a number of performance oriented updates with a sole purpose of making it faster on the race-track.

On the outside, the bike sports a blacked-out glossy bodywork instead of the Kawasaki's signature green colour. The only green highlight on the bike remains on its side fairing in the form of honeycomb graphics.

Bits like the racing cowl, seat cowl, and the race tank pad have been sourced from A-TEC. It has been given high-spec Showa suspension set-up and the original tyres have been swapped with race-spec rubber from Dunlop. Moreover, the bike also uses racing parts sourced from the brands like BEET, RK and SNIPER.

In terms of mechanical, the bike runs on the same 249 cc, in-line four cylinder engine which red-lines at mind-boggling 17,500 rpm. While the official output figures aren't confirmed yet, but the engine (in stock configuration) is rumored to produce around 59 PS of maximum power. On the other hand, with performance exhaust, free flow air filter and ECU re-mapping, the output can easily be upped to around 68 PS or more.

The company has announced in the past that it will conduct Ninja ZX-25R's One-Make Racing Championship in Japan, starting from 2021. The race, as we known it, will be open for all kind of riders.
