Kawasaki Z250 SL Expected Engine and Transmission

Z250 SL derives its power from a 249cc, 4-stroke, liquid cooled, parallel twin, mono cylinder, DOHC engine that delivers a good 27.62bhp of maximum power at 9700 rpm and 22.6Nm of peak torque at 8200rpm.

When comparing to other competitors of the same segment it is slightly more powerful than KTM 200 Duke and soon to be launched Benelli TNT 25. Well as it will be costlier than the Duke 200 for sure so it can even be compared to Duke 390 but the Duke is way ahead of the Z250 SL in terms of performance.
