Hi fellow riders!!! I just bought a EX250 J and was wondering what the real differences were between that and the EX250 R??? All that I have seen so far is that there are " major internal revisions, while maintaining the same general engine casing." I have yet to find what those "revisions" are... Can someone help me out???

Fourth Generation Manufacturer Kawasaki Also called EX250-J Production 2008 - 2012 Predecessor EX250-F Class Sport bike Engine 249 cc (15.2 cu in), Parallel twin, four-stroke, Liquid Cooled, DOHC. Bore / Stroke 62.0 mm × 41.2 mm (2.44 in × 1.62 in) Ignition type TCBI with digital advance Transmission Six-speed Tires Front: 110/70-17M/C
Rear: 130/70-17M/C Rake, Trail 26° Wheelbase 1,399.5 mm (55.10 in) Dimensions W 713.7 mm (28.10 in)
H 1,109.9 mm (43.70 in)
Seat height 774.7 mm (30.50 in) Weight 170 kg (375 lb) (dry)
In 2008, Kawasaki gave the EX250 its first big makeover after many years. The EX250-J model is known as the Ninja 250R worldwide, regardless of market.
Parts from the third generation are still found on the -J, but its redesigned exterior panels bring the Ninja's appearance out of the 1990s and into line with late-2000s sportbikes. The engine and drivetrain retain 30% of the -F model's parts, according to Kawasaki.[citation needed] The engine's compression and maximum torque have been lowered to provide better midrange performance. The redesign of the engine resulted in improvements in engine response at low engine speeds, and making the bike smoother and "much easier to ride."[10]
