ninja zzr250 vs ninja 500r

I love the look of the zzr250 but the idea of me getting a 250 just doesn't fit right.

I don't mind the 500R look but gawd I love that little ZZR250 check it out and tell me what you guys think

Hmmm, Unless your a midget i dont understand your logic. They are both identical with the 500R being SLIGHTLY larger.

Also the 250 doesnt have enough power to get out of its own way while the 500R can blast down the 1/4 mile in 12 seconds at 100+mph

For me the 500R would be a bare minimium to start on for guys. This is assuming you are at least 16 years old. I could see me on a 250 at like age 10 or something :-P 250 would make a great moped/scooter.

But i would take an aprila RS50 over the kawasaki 250r.

Edit:

I stand corrected. Apparently outside the US they do look different. Looks a lot like the zzr600 to me. Have you sat on the 600? I have never sat on a bike that fit me better, its so comfortable. To bad its only 90hp... faster then the 500 i guess but i highly doubt its enough for me. I think youd get bored of the 250 really quick id really push for the zzr600 :-)

That ZZ-R250 looks bad ass better than my EX250 that they sell south of the border! I might have to come up there and get me one!!!

Hey.. Slow down there tough guy.. Have you ever been on a Ninja 250???
My EX250 currently runs 14.4's on the 1/4 mile... STOCK! And regularly hits 110mph... And I'm not 10 or a midget...

The ZZ-R250's spec's are about the same as the EX250 (US model) except for the fuel capacity so I'd say you should be good...
