The Kawasaki 250R Ninja is great fun, and provides excellent value for money!!
Nothing has gone wrong yet, but the break-in-procedure of the engine is still going on...
I have hit a false neutral between the 5th and 6th gear, on average once every 50 km, roughly. This seems to have improved after an oil change at the first, 1000 km, service.
It is very fun to ride, nimble, and surprisingly fast taking the limited engine size into account. Up till now I have an average of about 64 miles per gallon, on my daily 80 kilometres commute (0-10 degrees C), in mid-Norway.
I'm very impressed with this bike, so far, even though I have previously owned big bikes, including a Kawasaki ZX 11.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
