    None of the 4 Japs are capable of making such a big blunder on the fairing part
    Just go back one page man. There are other pics from different angle. The section u marked is available there too.

    In my perspective this pic is morphed one. Reason being if we look carefully the tail section of the new 250 in white and the Current N300, they look exactly the same. But the same new 250 in the spy shot does not give you the same look as it is giving in the here. And the silencer of the bike is being derived from Z250, it ain't same as the spy shots of the new 250 silencer are. (Compare the Pic No.1 and Pic No.2).

    My second point is that some fellow member of xbhp circled the RR MONO badge on the new 250, which is completely missing here. (Compare the Pic No.1 and Pic No.5)

    Third point look into the picture No. carefully at the Rear and Front indicators in the Pic No.1, they completely don't match with each other. No company in the world provides the indicators in two different styles, unless the front end indicators of the bike are embodied into the fairing.

    Another point is in the earlier pics of the new 250 in the color Red and White (Spy Shots), the stripes give on the fairing have a curve in the end, on the another hand the in the morphed one the stripes are straight. (Compare the Pic No.1 and Pic No.4)

    And the last but not the least, if we look carefully at the spy shots of the new 250 the position of the RVMs are higher, which in the case of the morphed one are quite low or you can say almost like N300. (Compare the Pic No.1 and Pic No.3)

    Dono about photo shopped but the mirror looks same to me...the higher mirror is of a naked ver and lower mirrors are of faired ver hence the difference in exhaust IMO

    Its because the picture is photo-shopped but a good one. It is originally a ninja 300 (see below).

    Except the rear seat, headlight and fairing, rest everything is the same. (both pics aligned together at 50% opacity)

    Wow! Some real good analysts here!!!!!

    Biking is not about how many Km/h you put on your Speedo. It's about how many miles you put on your Odo. Ride Safe, Ride Long!

    The Honda CBR250R is priced at less than 2 lakhs on average. The Kawasaki Ninja 300 is priced at around 3.5 lakhs on average.

    That's a whopping 1.5 lakhs price gap! Certainly, the gap in the price range is enough to justify introducing a bike which will fill this segment. In all likelihood, the new Ninja 250 will be priced very competitively compared to the Honda CBR250R.

    And, as with all businesses, higher sales numbers is always better. Kawasaki, as motorcycle manufacturing company (among others), will I'm sure aspire to achieve higher sales. This strategy might work for them, without hurting their brand image ie. of manufacturing very capable entry level sports bikes.

    On the other hand, IF the naked Ninja 250 is launched in India, it will face stiff competition from KTM Duke 390 and surely the new naked 250 will look very bleak compared to the 390.
