No fuel injection for the 250 Kawasaki Ninja in the US, because they wanted to keep the price down, and because the exhaust rules are not as strict as in Europe that now has the fuel injected version. (My guess, and from my reading).
India also got fuel injection for the 2008 little Ninja, probably because it is considered a bigger, higher priced bike there, with a lot more people riding less expensive 50cc to 200cc bikes.
For racing, buy the Ninja. For everything else, I would buy the Honda with ABS brakes, although there might be some bugs during the first year of production.
