    First Bike / New Rider
    I found a used 2010 Ninja 250R with 3,200 miles on it. The dealer is asking $3,899 for it. Is that a fair price? or should I ask $3,400?

    I want to buy a used 2007 ninja250 for 1600 but it has a salvage title. How much does it cost to register a salvage? Is it worth it to invest in this bike? Thanks

    First Bike / New Rider
    I have spent several hours riding my bike (08 Ninja 250r) around my neighborhood and have felt very comfortable with it from the start.

  10. Shift lever adjustment

    General Motorcycle Discussion
    So this season for whatever reason I've noticed that I've been missing my upshifts from 1st to 2nd a lot. At least once every couple of days I'll slap it into neutral and rev the crap out the engine on accident. I also felt slightly uncomfortable with the position of my foot and ankle when it...

  13. Ninja 250r high rev

    Hello, i heard that the ninja 250r has high rev while going approx. 65+ mph. I understand it is because this is a low cc motorcycle, but do you think this will have much effect on the mileage life of it?
