    Pros: Fun, inexpensive to maintain, reliable, 70mpg

    Cons: Does lack power below 7,000 rpm, VERY soft suspension, no wind protection.

    Summary: I bought my 2004 Ninja 250 new in April, and now I have put about 3500 miles on it. The only problem I have had with it was a bad fork seal, and that was replaced for no cost under warranty. When I first reviewed this bike, I had only put about 500 ... read more

    Pros: Loss cost , 70 MPG, easy to ride & park, great looks.
    Cons: Silly break-in, seat too hard, handle bars buzz a bit.

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Quick, light, confidence-inspiring handling
    Cons: Difficult break in period, just not as cool looking as bigger bikes

    Summary: Although all of Kawasaki's demo pics of the 250 show women riders with mile-wide smiles, I'm a male and love the thing to death. This is the first bike I've owned, and I couldn't be happier. I'm still finding out how quick the thing is, I've had it up ... read more
