Mesmerizing , I keep coming back again and again to watch the photos. Crisp and clear it is a visual treat, absolutely wonderful travelogue pics.

Thanks for sharing.

Amazing pictures and superb write-up. How about the Z250 performing in the hilly terrains and roads? How were the stock tyres holding up?

A brilliant write up and lovely pictures!
Have been craving for an ownership report of a Z250 but havent got one!

This bike is so rare that I see only in pics.
One Sunday afternoon we went to KTM Indiranagar to enquire and they had it but the staff was so rude - asked us to go as store was supposed to be closed.
They even refused to switch on the lights for me to see the bike in flesh! I managed to see it with mobile torch before the staff rudely ushered us out.

They had the IPL match on and were busy sucking it up!

Another one I see once a month on BTM road and I can identify this bike from 100 mtrs oncoming traffic :-)

Please bring on the review!

Rating this thread a well deserved 5-Stars!

The front end wobbles when the road is even slightly uneven. Then again going more than 110kph is risky given the lack of ABS.
I guess such sane speeds are best for windy roads and even smaller highways considering the traffic, etc., Thanks for inspiring me with this photologue! Can't wait to get my hands on my bike and ride away

Great Photographs. I was especially impressed with the landscapes where you have added the partial sun effect to good use.
