Official documents filed in the USA suggest that there’re three new motorcycles from the Japanese factory on the way. Things have been quiet from Kawasaki of late; we’ve only really had the updated Versys 650 and H2 SX SE to get excited about, since the latest generation ZX-10R was revealed at the end of 2020. It looks as though that’s all about to change though, with selection of new Vehicle Identification Number documents filed in America which indicate that there’re three bikes set to be released imminently.
The big news is the expected arrival of the ZX-4R, which is rumoured to be a reworked version of Kawasaki’s hot 250cc ZX-25R which never made it over to the Europe, as a result of ever-tightening emissions regulations. The ZX-25R has been available in Japan since 2020, but it clearly needed a bit of work and an increase in capacity to meet European standards without losing out on power. However, it’ll no doubt still be a punchy number that’ll be more than up for challenging the likes of Yamaha’s R3 and KTM’s RC390.

The documents also suggest that Kawasaki will debut two electric motorcycles. The factory’s been fairly open about its plans to go ‘green’ – with its Endeavour prototype followed by plans for new electric products over the next couple of years (ahead of electrifying its entire range by 2035).
