Why a Ninja 250r is a good first bike

I was wondering around in youtube, when I came across this video.

The guy makes a pretty dam good point.



Also here's another video that I saw back him that I found pretty awesome.




Anyways I thought it was cool.

You wont need to convince anyone about the ninja 250/300 being a good starter bike. Its perfect. Light nimble and enough power to give people a taste of what a sport bike can do. Its not going to win any straight line speed contests, but its fast than a good 70% of the cars on the road and on tracks like GSS it will often out perform the larger bikes. In the hands of an expierenced rider even on tracks like MSRH its going give the big bikes a run for their money in the turns. Not to mention they are tough as . I wrecked my old one close to 75mph. Once I replaced the handle bar and fairings the bike ran like it did from day one.

One of the downsides is the lack of power, however on small roads and city roads with speed limits around the 45mph area the bike is perfect and better for beginners who are not as used to shifting and riding, the bike is much more forgiving to mistakes and is not going to fly out from under you as easy as a large sport bike might if one happens to get alittle to throttle happy.

They also hold their value very well. Ive heard of many riders buying a used 250 for around $2500 to $3000 riding for a season or 2 and re-selling the bike for close to what they paid for it themselves.

The guy that made the first video, Mordeth13. Have watched him for a long time. He rides a ninja 650 and makes Taiwan seam like a decent place to visit.

That second video just embarrasses the big bikes.

I know that most people on here know that the 250's are great beginer bikes, but these videos make it all the more convincing for stubborn knuckleheads like me.

Anyway I just posted this because it wasn't something that I was aware of and I thought was pretty dam awesome.

I've watched Mordeth13's videos before and I like em, but I've never watched this one from him though.

Hmmm... you make a valid point! I think that I'll just go for the Hayabusa instead then. Or do you think that the ZX-14 suits me better?
