2022 Kawasaki ZX-25R arrives in Malaysia under EMOS – on display at EMOS booth at 2022 Malaysia MotoGP

We did say Hammy the Dirty Badger is rarely wrong about these things and it appears the Kawasaki ZX-25R has arrived in Malaysia. Spotted in the Modenas booth at the 2022 Petronas Grand Prix of Malaysia, this ZX-25R was being readied for display at the EMOS booth in the concourse area.

From the safety and manufacturer’s stickers on the ZX-25R, it appears this is a Thailand market model. It can be assumed that the ZX-25R, when it is released in Malaysia next year as per Modenas CEO Roslan Raskan’s statement, will come in under the AFTA exemption.

This will mean pricing for the ZX-25R will be close to or at the price in Thailand, which is the equivalent of RM36,450. It was earlier speculated the ZX-25R might make an appearance at the Malaysia MotoGP and we now have proof it is so.

What do you think? Are you one of those riders who has been clamouring for the Kawasaki ZX-25R? Well, it is in Malaysia and in the flesh. If you want to have a close up look at it our friend in the industry says a visit to the Modenas booth on Saturday at Sepang International Circuit would be a good time to do so.

    • You can’t really compare this to the overpriced 200cc scooter.

      I mean, ZX-25R is a 4 cylinder, Kawasaki sports bike .. yea sure it’s only 250cc but the sound .. the sound it makes, just might make you to not mind the >30k pricetag

        • I’d argue that this bike will be remembered even after decades. Especially if it enters the EU & US market. Like the Honda MC22, and ’98 ZX25R

          • You didn’t misread it lol. His comment is negative towards the ZX25R. So you didn’t misread it, maybe syer wrote it wrongly.

      • And the full suite of electronics, this ain’t your cheapo “riding mode”, it’s an actual riding mode with proper electronics to back it up

      Locally assemble this model, OK. Re-badge is forbidden & will anger Kawasaki.

    • The market is very small for a 250cc 4cyl. bike. Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki even don,’t have one in their line up…

    to get the feeling of a sbk at a minimum price seems that this is worth every penny. however, still needs to review the maintenance. If this is all to be imported, then you might need to rethink.

    but if you look at the long term, you might won’t remain with the same bike once you felt the power is not enough. simple to say, with this price, you might would like to get a more higher cc/hp.

    Buy this, keep it under wrap and sell it in 20 years time for half a million because they won’t make anything like this bike anymore.
