New 250cc Kawasaki???

Found this pic on another forum. Was taken in Barcelona. Kawasaki dealer allegedly said that a new 250cc bike is headed for the market. I don't doubt that it'd come Down Under (huge market for 250's down here), but I wonder if you guys will get it, too???




Gotta say, the wheels make it look more 125-ish than 250.

Honestly with the kind of 250's we get out here, that will be a welcome addition, regardless of the wheels.

She's Found! Now I just hope I can restore her to her former glory...

Theres never weather bad enough to stop riding.

I'd really like to see that make it stateside. (it never will). The Ninja 250 we have is unchanged since it's 1988 introduction!

My wife would really like one of those.

Perhaps you guys should start calling dealers, showing some interest. Enough voices might make things happen.

Maby Firefox is looking at his future bike! That is, depending on the price tag...

I saw those pic's, too, but could only be stuffed posting one.

This is the sort of stuff that miiiiiiiight bring newb's back to smaller cc bikes. However, with the Yank attitude of, "It's my god-given right to splatter myself all over the road if I so wish," I think they'll only sell a handful of them over there.

The kids down here will go nuts for it, though!

CRAP! They'd better wait to release it here 'till I offload my wifes '05 250, otherwise, we'll never sell it. Shit, now she's gonna want that one and start all over again!!!!



Actually, I think that would be a huge hit here in the Land of All Things Blingy, as most newbs want something that Looks cool, and that little thing does look decent after 20 years of the same old crap!
