The real heist is that of your money when you have to throw that Chinese junk away after a few months.

I dont know if I'd call 250cc cruisers a shoot out.

Maybe 250cc Airsoft contest.

More of a Comparo than a Shoot-Out, but I'm glad to see it. Like Melisa wife is 5'2" and her height is a real issue for riding. Her question is where to go from the Ninja 250. Not a lot of choices for shorter people except for cruisers.

"tha" Heist is actually a damn good looking bike, at least in the photos. What a shame that "in the interest of full disclosure we have to explain that the dyno results for tha Heist aren’t really from tha Heist we rode" because it's a busted POS.

Maybe there's enough noobs out there to keep them in business, but I doubt it. Sell junk long enough, word will get out and CCW will be AMF.

Bring back the 250 Eliminator and Vulcan 500 please Kawaski
 
Better yet bring back the Eliminator series. The 125 doesn't count :) A new ZL600 and ZL1400 would be really cool for big K fans. Would love to see a new Eliminator 250 and a Vulcan/Eliminator 650 based on the ninja 650 motor. I can dream.

If she can handle a Ninja 250, a Gladius is ER-6n shouldn't be any trouble. Here's a link to a comparo: http://www.motorcycle.com/shoot-outs...son-88345.html

Gz250
 
There are still plenty of GZ250s left on showroom floors and it is still on Suzuki's Web page. You should have included it. This wouldn't be the first time Suzuki has decided to skip a model year for this reason. My gf is 5'2" and looking for a bike in this class, and the GZ tends to sell for a little less than the Honda and Yamaha.

Now it is time for a beginner retro comparison.
 
Put the Sym Classic Wolf, versus the CCW Tha' Misfit, versus the Suzuki TU 250. Sounds like fun and will go with what some young riders are looking for. The cruisers are starting to show their age.

We've got a lot going on over the next several weeks, but I like the idea.
