Ninja 250r..?

2105 Views 25 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  jeeps84
i'm a big guy, like 280+. do you think a 250 could haul me around? i just need a commuter bike that i can drive on the slab every now and then. i need to upgrade from my scooter, and i want to do it pretty cheaply. there's a kawi dealer in the boro and i want something economical (price, gas, insurance, etc.).

try a 500, just a little bit more on the price, not that either one is a dent on teh wallet, but the 500 has more "ass" if you can call it that
:withstupi but the 250 will get you there. Maybe faster than your scoot if its not one of the big 100mph beast.
:skep: :lol:

I know EXACTLY how he feels. Im thinking about all the bikes i considered:
kawasaki 650r
honda 600f4i
yamaha r6
yamaha fz6
suzuki sv650
ducati monster
buell firebolt
ninja 500

before getting my sv1000s
You need to explain how you ended up with a 1000 cc bike so biscuit understands.

your list looks like that game from preachool were you have to match the diffrent shaped pegs to the matching hole, and you obviously failed that test :cheers: :cheers: :lol: :whistle:
Did you quote the wrong person? :scratch:

ok... how about a 500, gs or ninja...
I think you would be happier with that.

:iagree: Not sure what your budget is but I think a Ducati Monster would make a nice commuter and there are plenty out there.
:iagree: if you can afford them.
:iagree: They are great stsrter bikes.
You don't have to sale me on a Monster. I miss mine and wish I had never sold it. I cant say the same about the 998.
IDK about the 620 pricing. Never looked for one, but they aren't as easy to find in my area. Seems that the ones that have'em don't want to part with'em. You almost have to buy new if you really want one.
:iagree: Nothing wrong with a 250.
I think he is leaning towards something along the lines of a SV.
Still a good choice. Especially for a big guy just starting.:2cents:
