The comparison I read has it a bit down on top speed versus the Ninja, with slightly better handling.

Looks like a real motorcycle too. I always thought the Ninja looked like a scooter with fairings.

i skimmed a comparo article between it and the ninja 250. they both stated highs and lows, but i think they favored the new kid. i'd like to see them toss a hyo 250 in and compare all 3.
the hyo looks the nicest imo, and is a vtwin. i dont know about yall, but i think singles make great dirtbikes and belong in the dirt, not dressed up as a street bike

It's low on power compared to the kawi, but FI is a big plus.

fender eliminator, some clip-ons (if they'll work on the bike) and that CBR would look secksy, IMO.

it doesnt look like you could use clipons that go much lower than stock. looks like the body work would get in the way
