What? You don't like driving up steep hills at 20 mph? Going up the mountain is never the fun part. Now going down the mountain...

250's are great starter bikes. i'll always recommend them. but they are a niche market and limited usefulness.

Not to be contrary, but I think usefulness is a large part of the problem for 250s in the states. Who wants useful at the right price point when you can have loud and flashy!

The stock saddle on the ninja 250 isn't half bad. help you, if you are passing on a hill.

Did I miss some 250 naysaying thread or is Racer X just having delusions of grandeur again?
