Im murph250 from Mississippi I'm gettin a 2012 ninja 250 Friday hopefully and I want to know some of the cons
At 5'9"... your at the top of what I'd say would be comfortable on the bike. But the brakes are excellent... handling too!Lol Kool guys thx I heard that the brakes arent good I sat on it an fit perfect I'm 5-9. 176lbs
Have you thought of some bar raisers ,you might also find your clip ons may have some adjustment in them ?Bulletproof250r said:Welcome to the site Murph! I think you made an excellent choice for a bike. The little 250 isn't a speed demon but can out handle larger bikes in the twisties being so small and flickable. Every time I ride mine I seem to push it more and more and I know it can be pushed farther than that as my skills progress.
The only con for me is the ergonomics. I tend to put a lot of weight on my wrists when riding and my hands tend to fall asleep after about a half hour of riding. This could just be me and the way I ride. If I get off my butt and work on getting rid of my beer gut with some ab exercises it would probably help with that. Or take the easy way and buy bar risers.
But I digress... No matter what you'll get you will find flaws with it in someway, shape or form. That's why there are mods to help you deal with them. Plus you've come to the coolest place to find ideas and knowledge about your new bike. Good luck and rubber down.
