Has anyone been able to find a horsepower for the Ninja 250?? been everywhere and am still unable to find on the net... guess I could have asked the dealership while I was there but the drool kept me from talking to much...btw for all those who help with my starter bike post..thanks. I went and looked at the Ninja 500r and fell in love. It looks like the perfect starter bike..had good looks, felt comfortable to sit on and my feet actually touched the ground. looks like I will get one at the end of the riding season to try and save some cash on a closeout deal.
