but it seems like very low foot peg position too as the boots (there's closeups showing the boot sliders) scraped (like my R25 also before i risen the pegs)

oh the sound of 4 inline.... yeap... every morning when i start my bike i would stay silent for a while and admiring the sound of the 4 inline.... really made my day. all my morning drowsiness gone. riding it is a blessing... revving it up to 14k rpm to work, blasting it and listening to the engine's roar is sooo satisfying till it got too hot for the balls and the feet lol!

Indonesia price in RM for the SE version is 33k, import tax is 35%. This Moto will be like 45k if Kawasaki import into Malaysia. No way they'd do that. And since Kawasaki (KHI to be specific) went up from 19% equity in Modenas to 30%. And KHI going to buy some more stock which will bring it's equity to 48% in Modenas. I think it's pretty evident that the ZX25R will confirm be assembled in MY with as a Modenas badge and I have no problem with that. Just pull out the ugly Modenas (imo) badge and put Kawi, hopefully no quality drop. Think we can expect sub 35k price if it goes like that. Ninja 400 also cant compete with this bike, it is slower, less premium and imo doesn't sound as good. It's 5 lakh in India and that's RM 30k. So I think the ZX25R is very fitting, especially when I'm too lazy to move up to a B full hahaha.

Yamaha beh tahan edy. They might launch a competitor and give the ZX-25R a run for its money.

For that price under Modenas the ZX25R would pretty much eat into some 650cc sportsbike sales as well. It'd be an attractive package for B2 license holders and those who want to pay 2/3rds less roadtax compared to the 400.

However, as a Ninja 400 owner, I don't know if I would choose ZX25R if I had to decide. With the 400, 2 cylinder maintenance and EO cost is less, and I get more torque which suits my riding style better as I am not kaki top speed. But what I realize now after a year after owning the 400 is that I prefer machines that don't need to be revved high...with the exception of the CB400SF because VTEC gives it character, haha.

Look, if y'all worry so much about costings, the Ninja 250 is still here. Or around RM40K you can go with the Ninja400 and mod it with premium parts, or ninja 650 or used zx6r/mt09/z900 etc. Compare dollar to dollar, those bike are wayyyyyy better.

Quite obvious that this bike aimed for premium buyers.... But this bike WILL be a lot of fun to ride, nevertheless.

For that price it definitely will eat into the B full category bikes, but I think that's the only way the bike will be *very* successful here. You're probably right that the maintenance and EO cost less. For me I love the four cylinder sound, nothing beats it for me. But then again I'm going to be riding as opposed to driving to college. And whatever the difference is in maintenance cost I think I'll be cheap with it compared to my 31 year old E30's maintenance, fuel, touch n go, season parking pass. Especially when I consider how much time I save. I could probably see this bike being collectible as well, but it's not important because I'd probably never sell this bike haha. And I am a kaki top speed, already imagining what mods I can put on this bike and take it to track or countryside highway where there's basically zero cars, like otw to see my relatives in Terengganu. But yeah it is about the rider haha.
