Exactly what I was looking for. I’ll keep learning on and enjoying my 250 for the Fall/Winter, but I think that’s going to be my spring fling.September 22, 2008 at 8:13 pm #12504

..but can this be done on a 250? Meaning, can the plastic (or some of it) be taken off? Is this even an intelligent idea? [caveat: I KNOW it’s not an idea backed with any experience.]September 23, 2008 at 4:19 pm #12566WeaponZeroParticipant
I like the look of the bike a lot, and I’m sure it’s fine, but I just can’t get past the fact that just about every review I’ve read essentially says that the SV650N is superior in just about every way. But then, I’ve always been more of a function over form guy, and if the uglier bike does better in tests, then it’s what I’d get. That’s just me though…
NOT that an SV650 is ugly of course!September 23, 2008 at 6:55 pm #12572TheAbomb12Participant
I actually prefer the look of the SV650 much much more.
BUT with that said, the Ninja 650 and the ER-6n are much more forgiving beginner bikes– where as the SV650 has a bit more power and overall does require a bit more skill.September 24, 2008 at 1:56 am #12614
This is a sport bike that may rouse my appetite for something of the sport bike kind.

I think the issue with many of those bikes, not just the 250, with the fairings and such is that often things like the headlight and some of the other nessisary parts are mounted in the fairings, and removing them makes having a legal/safe bike….difficult.September 24, 2008 at 3:01 am #12623BuddParticipant
After watching the video, I am sold. Well maybe not. That ninja 650 is hawt too!
I am thinking maybe I bleed Kawasaki green.

It sure looks nice in the video. Come spring time, when I have more riding experience under my belt, I plan to start commuting to work on a bike (45 minutes each way on I95). I’ll probably be wanting to move up to a bit more power than my Ninja 250, and I think the choice is going to be between the ER-6N and Yamaha’s revised FZR6.
