Ninja 250 VS. Ninja 500

Whats the difference between the 2? I have a Ninja 250 and I hate it! How much better is the 500? Does it look better, When I look at my 250 from the front it looks so small, is the 500 like this?
I heard the 0-60 for the 500 is 4 sec, is this true?

Questions

Back in the late 60's when I first started to ride, the 250cc bike was the "cat's meow." . . . a very proper bike on which to learn. Why do you seem to hate your Ninja 250 so much? Depending on your answer, perhaps you are ready to graduate to a more powerful/responsive/less forgiving bike. As far as "looks," yes I prefer the Ninja 500 to the 250. But I aslo prefer the 636 to the 500. But first things first (for safety's sake) . . .
Back in the day (60's-arly 70's) the choices ranged (in cc) from 70 to 90, to 125, to 150, to 250, to 350, to 550, 750, 1000 etc.

moving from a ninja 250 to a 500 is a waste of time, there is only a very little power difference and the 500 doesn't flick as well as a 250. if the looks are the only thing that bothers you then keep it and master it, if your bored with it then move up to a 600, but keep in mind that it won't handle as well or be as forgiving.
