i found this news article that suggests a possible upcoming of the new ninja in a naked version
seeing as in indonesia the 2013 is a 250, maybe the naked will only be available in a 250 version?

But as both the 2013 250/125 are visually identical - maybe the 125 will be released as a naked version too

thoughts?

naked means no side fairings
you can quite literally see it's genitals.. (motor and what not)
it's 'naked'

Without the plastics. Usually the front and side fairings.

haha it isn't as simple as removing the plastics. they redesign the tank and headlight usually too - as well as the dash and maybe even handle bars

It would be nice to see a naked ninja 125. A photoshop is needed here. I could imagine it in my head already.

They also are sometimes incorrectly called streetfighters. Here are some 250 streetfighters.

I prefer naked bikes, and I wouldn't want the belly fairings. Part of the idea is to get rid of extra weight. You know in Europe they have the ER6 which is the naked version of the 650r. Same everything except fairings. It's interesting how motorcycl

Same everything except fairings. It's interesting how motorcycle companies release different bikes or versions in different countries. Invariably, I want something that is not released here in the US...like the ER6, or the fuel injected 250. There's a good chance even if Kawa did make an ER3, it wouldn't be available in the US.

The same but with more wind, i stripped my 250r to some work to it after i bought it. Riding it around without any thing on it, it was just a seat

My first was a 96 Suzuki gs500e, it was naked, and designed well. Once I got used to it, it was not bad, just a tail, and front tire fender, I don't even recall it being hot, it dispersed heat equally around it

They don't fair to well in the States. It took me ages to find a nice er-6n here in the US. I was really hoping KTM would release the Duke 200/125 (Naked) in the US, but KTM claim its to small for the US market. Sell's like crack over in India though
