'09 Ninja 250R inspired by MotoGP ZX-RR

In addition to Metallic Diablo Black, Sunbeam Red and Candy Thunder Blue, the 2009 Ninja 250R will be available in a Special Edition Lime Green and Metallic Diablo Black combination. The great-looking paint scheme of the new Special Edition Ninja 250R which features Kawi green with black side panels, echoes the MotoGP ZX-RR.

This is a strange time to release such a bike since the British motorsports site Autosport.com recently reported that the Japanese manufacturer will announce its withdrawal from MotoGP racing on Jan. 5, 2009, leaving John Hopkins and Marco Melandri without a ride. I don’t imagine they would be interested in shelling out four G’s of their hard earned cash to buy one of their own but my guess is that plenty of other people will be interested in living the dream.
