Kawasaki Ninja 250r 2010

The size For those seeking a bike that can pop wheelies at will, the Ninja 250R is definitely not your bike. For those seeking mind-boggling acceleration and near-flight top speeds, the Ninja 250R isn't your bike (neither is the Ninja 500R or even 650R, either). At 249cc, it isn't exactly packing a whole ton of power.

The Ninja 250R is limited by virtue of what it was built to be. If they don't bother you so much and you keep reading I know you'll love what you hear. Rather than rant and rave about how great this bike is for most of the article (and then dump on it at the end), I've decided to point out it's most obvious and debilitating flaws right away. The Kawasaki Ninja 250R's Greatest Shortcoming....

You'll find it to be a stable, windable little pocket-rocket that is just as happy being flicked through corners as it is cruising at 60 or 70 mph on the freeway. If you've never ridden a Kawasaki Ninja 250R before I recommend that, immediately after reading this review, you get out there with your helmet in your hand and find one to ride! Often, people who ride a Kawasaki Ninja 250R or 500R will hold on to that bike for their spouse or children, as it provides such a stable and reliable way to enter the sport bike world with minimal investment and maximum enjoyment. They're attractive, reliable, punchy, get great gas mileage, and they hold their value quite well.  I'm a big fan of Kawasaki's entry-level sport bikes.
