Down grade?

Would any of you riders that ride 600 or 1000 down grade to a ninja 250?
They look sick and i think they would be fun to play on. I would get one if i could come by one cheap enough. I think I would look funny on one because I am over six foot.

I wouldn't necessarily downgrade. I might add one because the little experience I had on DyLons bike was pure joy.

I had a 900rr, sold it and got a 600rr and a 500r.

so I kinda did. I love both the 600rr for the track and 500r for the streets.

I had a 250 ninja when I had my f4i and I rode the 250 to work every day.. only because if it got stolen I would care less and I worked at the mall.. But other then that I would never ride it.


The same thing is happening to my F4i.. it sits in the garage doing nothing now that I have my 1000RR, the 1k is THAT much more fun to ride then my f4i.

I had a 900RR and now ride a 600f4i. I am talking about a 250 though.
You think people would laugh just because I choose to leave the 600 at home and ride the 250. Like I would care anyway.

It's fun at first but then gets boring before you pay it off, just my 2 cents.


unless you put track plastics on it and then it would be fun again.

none right now :(
07 ninja 250 - sold
07 ZZR 600 - sold




if i could afford it, i'd get a 2fiddy

i traded up to a 600 from a 250 and really missed it. if i had the $$$, i would have kept both! the 250 was fun to just tool around on and plus you can't beat the gas mileage on 'em if you want to commute on it

I would not "Downgrade" to a ninja 250 but gladly would "Downgrade" to a Moriwaki 250.

That is a race bike and cost probaly more that 10k, I am thinking of a twofiddy as something like a cheap play bike maybe commute and play on the 600? I would love to find me a wrecked twofiddy for dirt cheap.

I wouldnt consider it a downgrade.

There is alot more you can learn from that type of ride vs the power happy other bikes.

I wouldn't mind sporting one.
