Unless those pictures aren't the US version, it looks to have FI.

Also looks like there will be an ABS and non ABS version.

I hope that isn't true. Specially the lime green color.

Wow, I'm seriously jealous of the new looks! The gauges too!

I wonder what kind of engine refinements the new pistons, crank, etc., will bring? More torque hopefully?

Really? A lot of people like FI. And if you look at the left bar on the pictures, you won't see a choke. That's why I'm assuming it has FI but like I said, who knows if that's a US model.

I picked up a new CBR250 yesterday (only because I got an insanely cheap deal on it) but if these reports are accurate I'll be looking very seriously into trading it towards a 2013 Ninja.

2013 Ninja 300 ABS

I didn't mean the FI. I mean the whole new model. I hope thy offer this new model here in US this year, and of course in lime green too!

Didn't Kawasaki already announce their 2013 models and revisions? The 250 wasn't one of them.
I dunno, but Kawasaki was just here in Michigan last weekend, for their "DEMO DAYS" and I was there both days...

Not a single Ninja 250R to demo ride!

So I automatically figured sumin' was up!
