Great little bike
By Jeff Jordan(Owner), Dec. 7, 2008
I bought this bike in november of 08' after looking for a suitable beginner bike and haven't looked back. What really inspired me to buy this bike was kawasaki's all new bodywork for the 2008 and 09 versions and the price! It looks more like a big bike than a 250 unlike the earlier versions that are...

Don't be fooled... this bike will kick @$$
By David Medeiros(Owner), Mar. 26, 2009
I was the proud owner of a yamaha R6 for many years. The R6 was fast, responsive, nimble, and very uncomfortable on long rides. I sold it last year when it started to give me transmission issues (I bought it used with high mileage). As I was looking for a new bike to buy the ergonomically designe... Read Full Review

2009 250 Ninja - Best Bang 4 The Buck!!!

Ninja 250 = fun fun fun!
By Rudy Chang(Owner), Mar. 2, 2009
While deciding on what bike to get to begin my motorcycling, I considered getting a 600cc bike to "grow into." I am a medical student who is going into emergency medicine this coming June, and as such have seen many people make the wrong choice and buy the wrong motorcycle for their skill ...

My First Motorcycle
By Kristi Bluhm(Owner), Jan. 12, 2009
I bought this bike when it first came out, the beginning of the riding season last year. I absolutely love it! A great, affordable bike, that looks much sportier than the earlier 250's. I'm looking forward to a fender-eliminator kit this year for even better styling.



:)
