Did "you" get your 2009 Kawasaki Ninja 250R?

Knowing that the 2008's sold out in a heart beat, I jumped on the opportunity at placing a deposit on the new 2009 250R's. Anyone else?

I've ridden it a few times since Dylan picked it up, and it runs like a champ. Starts right up everytime, and the power comes on nice and linear. Brakes work EXCEPTIONALLY well too!!!! It seems your friend passed up a great bike.

The bike could REALLLLLY use a good cleaning though(Yeah, I'm lookin' at you Dylan)

why do you say that? have the 08's been having problems or something? i doubt people will rush to trade in their year old 250 for the 09 model, which im guessing is mostly the same...

Just reading through the thread I saw some wondering about stats on the 09 to my understanding the 09 and 08 are the exact same except the price went up $500. I went and looked at mine today and sat on it to take a few pics. I love it and I know of a few other places that had them yesterday but their prices were nothing compared to what i got. I got the only one this dealship had and it never made it to the show room floor to try to be sold it was on the floor today with the plastic still on it with a nice pretty sign that said sold. ColeTowler the only thing i can tell you is good luck finding another place that has one. I went through every place in the area to find mine.
