Default I've been wondering...

I've been wondering when Kawasaki was going to do something like this for the Ninja 250 with a complete update.



Probally won't fly here, to high a price and too low on power.

Default Maybe..

Honda will put the 583cc V-2 from the Shadow VLX in an entry level sporty bike. Hydraulic valves and 30hp would be great and they sound decent too.

$3500 is ridiculously cheap and it will def sell up here. Compared to the zzr250 (we dont get the ex250 which is a good thing cause its ugly) you are getting a great deal because you get all the gear too. When I bought my zzr it was $6000 without any gear . For no apparent reason vehicles in the states are a heck of alot cheaper after you do the exchange rate, so if they sold it in the states it would probably be $2500.

125cc just ain't gonna cut it anymore. At least a two fiddy 2- or 4-cylinder and the newbie squids might go for it.

Should be a 250. 125cc are not enough on the road. A bike should have at least enough power to get out of its own way, or else you are a sitting duck.

When I was in High School bikes like the Ninja 250 (which was new then) had respect for their light weight and high-revving performance despite the low displacement. We were in high school-- we didn't need to go long distances, generally, and were willing to put up with the physical discomforts of smaller bikes and naked bikes. I had a friend with an older 400-Four which would do the ton when pressed, and that was fast-*****-enough for us, given that the national speed limit was half its top speed, and all the roads we cruised on were 35-45mph tops anyway.



If you're truly trying to approach a younger audience, then I would say that indeed less is more. A 600 is way overkill.



But this 125 might be a bit too little. We'll see.
