08 ninja 250 for highways

is the new Ninja 250 enough bike to safely operate on the highways like I66 and I95? If not, then what would be the smallest bike which would serve it well?

afaik, going with the flow of traffic isn’t a problem. My buddy was doing fine on the highway with me doing between 70 – 85 mph on his 07 ninja 250. I think the only issue might be going the flow of traffic and needing to get a boost to do a quick pass of another vehicle… I have no idea what i66 or i95’s like. Most of my riding has been on 101, 237, 92, 880, 680, 237, 580… basically just the bay area…
If there’s anything more important than my ego
around, I want it caught and shot now…May 16, 2008 at 12:54 pm #6372MattParticipant
I don’t know the flow of the I95, but I can easily cruise my ZZR-250 at 120kph (75mph). It still has guts left at that speed.
There aren’t many 250s I’d take on the interstates, but the Ninja is one I have no fears about.
