I keep hearing about these EX500's. Is that just another name for the Ninja 500R, or is it something different. Somebody please enlighten me :p

yep ninja 500r is the same as the ex500. Ninja 500R is the current name and ex500 is the old name.

Yeah, I tend to call it the EX500 because I had a EX500 as my first bike and they still look exactly the same over 10 years later, so to me it's still an EX.

Changes were made in '94. B***** tires (16 to 17in.), forks (36mm to 37mm), brakes (rear disk instead of drum), fairings. AFAIK the engine is still the same from '87-present.

Any year is still a fun bike. Even the old ones like mine.

those are really the only major changes in the bike. the styling has also changed very little
but the bike still looks awesom new and old
