Unik juga gan rumor seputar sport Kawasaki 250 cc 4 silinder yang pertamakali dihembuskan wak Kaji TMC ini, meski belakangan Kawasaki membantahnya, tetep aja sudah terlanjur terblow dan merambah ke seluruh dunia. Sebuah fakta bahwa Visordown, sebuah laman internet khusus otomotif roda 2 yang berbasis di Inggris, ternyata juga ngiler nulis rumor ini. Sportifnya mereka, tetep menulis sumbernya yakni dari TMC blog.
“The latest information, coming from the sources of usually-accurate Indonesian motorcycling blog TMCblog.com, is that a new 250cc Kawasaki is definitely under development but that both twin-cylinder and four-cylinder versions are being worked on simultaneously. The development work itself is said to be happening in Indonesia, and later this year both designs are to be presented before Kawasaki’s bosses in Japan, who will make a final decision on which to build.
Unsurprisingly, the work is understood to be a reaction to Yamaha’s new parallel twin R25, which is sure to take a big bite out of Kawasaki’s Ninja 250 sales in the massive Indonesian market. TMCblog suggests that Kawasaki wants its new machine to be revealed in 2015, presumably as a 2016 model, giving just one year between the decision about the engine configuration and the start of production.”
