Here comes another entry-level performance motorcycle.

2015 has thus far been a notable year for the motorcycle fanatics in India. With buying capacity and alternatives increasing in the entry-level performance motorcycle category (consisting of bikes that are priced at around Rs. 2 lakhs), rivalry is blooming and more models are being drawn into the country.

One such model that is expected to launch soon in India, is Kawasaki Z250SL.

It is a single-cylinder and more minimal variant of twin-cylinder Z250 that is currently sitting idly in showrooms across India. Given its very high price tag and not enough punch for the buck, there are simply not many takers for Kawasaki Z250.

To fix the lower level of the Japanese motorcycle major’s Indian portfolio, the company is believed to have decided to launch the Kawasaki Z250SL variant, hopefully with a compelling price tag.

The Z250SL draws power from a 249cc single-cylinder four-valve DOHC fuel-injected engine, that dishes out 27.6 bhp max power @ 9,700 rpm and 22.5 Nm peak torque @ 8,200 rpm, mated to 6-speed gearbox.

This new model may not be as refined as the twin-cylinder Z250, but it certainly seems to be more aggressive on styling front, given the all the more minimal design. Overall, the Z250SL is 20 kg lighter than the more premium variant.

Expect the bike to be brought to India via CKD route. Launch could take place in mid-2015, at hopeful price of around Rs. 2 lakhs.
