Brilliant confidence booster
The seat has started to wear and is ripped in a couple of places.
This bike amazed me that I can get BOTH feet flat on the floor (I'm a lady rider and have an inside leg measurement of about 27 inches). This has made it an ideal first bike, as not only is it nippy and looks like a much bigger bike, my confidence has been boosted because I don't feel like I'm about to drop it every time I stop.
The acceleration isn't great on this bike until you hit quite high revs, so don't try and take anyone on at lights! But what do you expect from a little engine?
That said, once it starts going it's got quite a lot to give up to about 75mph, which for town riding and the odd longer trip is ideal.
This bike has been abused by the previous owners, but still runs really well and the handling is great.
The ZZR250 is also very cheap to run and you can nick parts off other, non-imported bikes.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
