If your after something quicker invest in an rvf400 which is learner legal. All the hondas have the option to buy TYGA kits as well which look awesome, and better then the two circle headlights, and flat tail.

    not sure if this post is srs?

    or typical noob rider/learner mentality

    yes hayabusa is the best learner bike around. a bit lacking in the power department, but thats what you need as a learner anyway.

    Get a 2-stroke. Win at life.

    Seriously though, ignore the racey wank bikes and new stuff and get a GPX250. Reliable as an old boot, sit on 140-odd reasonably easily (gotta wring it out though) so city traffic would be a cinch, and being a parallel twin they sound so much better than the XR250 wannabes and mosquito bikes.
    Had one when I was 16/17, sold it when I got into cars.

    Edit: it may have been a ZZR, memory's a bit foggy. This was 5-6 years ago.

    CBR V 250R Ninja?

    I have been looking at 2008 onwards ninjas and 2010 onwards cbr250r as a first bike as I want one with low kms and something that I won't have to constantly be putting money into, I have a s13 for that.
    I'm only going off what I have read about them I have not ridden or even sat on either one. Has anyone ridden both or either bike and have anything that they have noticed about riding each one

    i owned a ninja for just over a year. Put 16000km on it had a blast never missed a beat. I coudent reccomend one more.
    I test road the cbr, Felt like it had a tiny bit more torque being a single over the ninjas tiwn. but everything else went the ninjas way, comfort, position, power and most importaly looks :p

    Id reccomend test rideing both (should be able to get a good deal on a ninja with the 300 out now) and just go off feel.

    I would reccomend the Ninja. The CBRs parts are more expensive because it just came out, where the Kawasaki Ninja 250 R has been rolling around since '08. Cooler look, better sound, and carbs are easier/cheaper to maintain then FI.
    Depending on your bank, you may be able to finance a motorcycle through your bank.
    I have sat on both, thd CBR feels cramped to me.

    CBR V 250R Ninja?

    I ended up buying a 2012 ninja 250r, after looking at both I chose the ninja over the cbr.
