When we showed the first images of this bike caught in Indonesia six weeks ago, we also said that there’s rumours about there being TWO versions of this bike – an A2 friendly, 45bhp bike and an all-screaming, all-dancing 60bhp version. And now we’ve got the official unveil of this 2020 model from Kawasaki.
Well, Kawasaki hasn’t released any spec on the quarter-litre funster yet, so we can’t confirm any of that. What we do know is that the bike gets a lot of ZX-6R stuff, rather than borrow much from its 400cc sibling.
It’ll come with keyless start and it gets a trellis steel frame. The forks are separate function units like on the 600 and it gets different power modes, traction control and a quickshifter. Up front there’s a radially-mounted caliper.
Hmmm… it’s easy to say that this is just going to be an A2 bike, but there’s a real lot of kit that will no doubt up the price when we eventually get it. Would a 60bhp, screaming 249cc mini-superbike be enough to get your juices going?
