Bike was in really good condition and was an absolute blast to ride around the neighborhood. I got it into 3rd gear and up to 45 and it felt fine. The shifting was easier than the bikes at the MSF (Rebel, Nighthawk) once I got used to the foot position. The peg is underneath me but the handlebars don’t need an aggressive lean forward. Stalled it once at a stop sign with a car behind me. rider error though. I think I let the revs get to low.
I have a verbal price agreement that includes a new front tire. A mate who works on his own bikes will give it a once over before I finalize the deal.
Now I have ridden one I know why everyone says the Ninja 250 is good for noob’s and is really fun to ride.
