The Ninja 250 RR Mono will replace the Ninja 150 RR in Indonesia (discontinuation from mid-2015) and it will be launched by March this year.

The bike gets inverted telescopic suspension at the front and a monoshock setup at the rear. There's also a fully digital instrument cluster up front that shows that the tachometer going all the way up to 12,000 rpm. The semi-naked bike gets a full faring at the front and split seats for the rider and the pillion.
The bike is available in four different colours - Kwaker Lime green, Passion Red, Pearl Stardust White and Pearl Shinning Yellow.
