Sounds awesome with megacycle pipe/ sounds like a big bike, people don't believe its a 250. I'm so happy with the zzr 250 my son got that I am buying one myself.

I'm only 17, and this bike is my second. I started off at 16 years old on a 1963 Sukuki GSX 250 which I purchased for $450.

This bike is the 91 model and has... (read more)

Obtained the Kawasaki ZZR 250 as a learner bike, something to get me going back in 98. It's relatively cheap, easy to maintain, and quite reliable. Light enough not to snap a tendon when backing up an incline, and easy enough to handle for places that permits lane-splitting. Is fairly good for motorcycle autocross / gymkhana events with the right gearing.
I kept it as a commuter even after obtaining bigger (though not necessarily better) bikes.
Most non-bikers and even some bikers will... (read more)
