Don't do it. Its all for the looks and 30% better lower torque. its still an RPM hog, so shouldn't make all the difference.

I'm on an 07.... see ninja250.com

its not worth $2 extra right now. Which is ABOUT what it equates to. i know they are pretty... but not $2k for the essentially the same bike with a little differences etc.....

I got the 2fiddy and I love it, I took the MSF on an older and the IMO the new is more comfy & you already know it looks 100x better. If you are getting it to keep and not just to resell in a couple months I say go for it and you won't be sorry.

Humble Kawasaki had 3 new 250's on the showroom floor a few weeks ago. I haven't been in there since but you never know.
