question about the 2009 ninja 250

im currently riding a yamaha 750 virago thats a 94 model and was looking at the ninja 250 just for the fuel economy wow lol. would this bike be to small for me as compared to the 750 cruiser im used to. i want to get a new bike preferrably a sport bike but theres a local dealer with some very cheap 250s with 0 miles. i ride a round trip of 80 miles a day and am worried about over taching a smaller 250 on the freeway ( mostly what i ride ). anyone know how one of these ride at 70 constantly ?

ps im a fairly large guy at 6 foot 250 pounds

The 500 is a solid bike. It is a proven design with a bullet-proof engine. You'll have no problem with freeway speeds and there will be a noticeable difference in performance over your current bike. Good luck!

I would see no problem with the two fifty. As long as your not going to try and through someone on the back that is.
