Japan is still building bikes, and one of the most interesting machines to come out this year is the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R. A quarter-litre pocket rocket with a screaming-high 17,000 rpm redline, aimed at the real mass market of motorcyclists (the developing world)? Sounds like a game changer.
And now you can, in fact, hear what that game changer sounds like, as a couple of jockeys have taken the ZX-25R for a spin around Jerez, with some marketspeak spliced in. Hey, it’s how this business works, so just listen to them complimenting the bike awkwardly, and then enjoy the in-flight footage.
