Power test wins with new NINJA 250
Before publishing the lap results, let’s take a look at the power test data of the two models:The test result is that the power output of the new NINJA 250 is above the CBR250RR. According to the results of the TRICK STAR Racing horsepower test machine, the maximum power of the CBR250RR is 33.99ps; the new NINJA 250 is 35.20ps,Horsepower is about 1.2ps worse. Note: The horsepower test is more representative than the manufacturer’s specifications.
Power test results of the two models: blue is the new NINJA 250 and red is the power curve of the CBR250RR, which is about 1.2ps worse at high speeds
The lap results were won by the CBR250RR
After the horsepower test machine, the track test was conducted the next day. The SPA Xipu circuit is the home of TRICK STAR Racing. The following only lists the lap times of Yamamoto players.
As a result, the lap time of the CBR250RR was better than the new NINJA 250, and the lap time difference was nearly 1 second.. But both Coach Tsuruta and Yamamoto believe that “NINJA 250 performed better than expected, and KAWASAKI did a great job!“
Because of the time, the new NINJA 250 just took a similar exhaust and installed it, and did not make relevant adjustments for the modified part, but compared with the CBR250RR, it is not inferior. Both people think that the NINJA 250 “can still grow space”.Although the design concepts of the new NINJA 250 and CBR250RR are not the same, it can be found in this test that the new NINJA 250 and CBR250RR are in the middle of the middle, whether in horsepower or lap results..

Grand Patriarch:In this comparative article, there will be a lot of content that you need to filter, and then the key to car selection is ~
The manufacturer’s data is relatively called “book data”. The horsepower machine data is more convincing (including measured speed-up data), but unfortunately, he has little to do with us when we ride. ~ 1 horsepower is worse, you will lose weight
The laps here are run by professionals and have nothing to do with you in the street. It’s not that the Honda 250 you ride is faster than the little ninja your friend rides … Don’t misunderstand, just look at it.
Little Ninja is the most familiar small displacement imported street run in China, with high cost performance, and the new 2018 is bound to be a better choice; while the Honda 250 is more inclined to high-end hardware competition settings, the pursuit of small displacement practice competition; however. ..The 2018 model is estimated to choose the most 400cc ninja, don’t ask why
And neither of them can surpass the GSX R250 in the real domestic market (please objectively and comprehensively evaluate), unless you are a real racer
