upgrades

Im wanting to get a 600 this winter but I can't decide what I like. I'm definitely keeping the ninjette but I can't decide if I want to stay loyal to kawasaki and get a Zx6r or go with a gixxer

I have yet to sit on a gixxer but I have satten on a cbr 600rr and that thing is extremely comfortable for me. I have heard that gixxers are so popular because they feel as good to ride as they look. If I ever upgrade I doubt it will be to a zx-6r; That's not even close to the top of my list.

You might want to wait before getting on a bigger bike.

I would be more worried about the fact that he currently uses tire shine

That was one mistake haha its taken so long to get that stuff off and its still not completely off. Never again. But I'm planning on getting something bigger I'm winter or early spring so I was just seeing what everybody else likes. Never ever put tire shine on a bike though its dangerous but even more it sucks to get off when you realize its a bad move haha

Personally I think the new GSXR's are ugly, but they are very well performing now.

I personally wouldn't buy a new cbr because I think they might revamp it soon, as it is very due. Though out of the 2 choices I would get a CBR because it has the looks, the least aggressive position and a very linear powerband.

I stand corrected, its already happened. I did a quick google search and read that it's possibly a v4? thats really outside the box for honda. But I dont think I'll ever ride a 1000cc bike in my life (Ducati Streetfighter is the exception)

Same engine. New suspension, and that's apparently about it (other than some styling tweaks).

So no V-4? That doesn't seem like something Honda would do to a well established bike. The headlights look a little different still I don't think a 1000CC bike is really necessary for the road, although I have never ridden one.

Sticking with the supersports? I've been eyeing the versys or ER-6N for a while now. Kinda want something different. Maybe even a dualsport to do some unpaved road riding.

What's the point of having 2 bikes at your age?
And do you need a bigger bike? Like are you contantly pushing this one?
Or do you shift at like 5 or 6 everytime and take corners at speed limit?

I too am looking to upgrade. Not immediately, but in the future. Why is everyone on this forum so against people wanting a bigger motorcycle?

My ninjette is an 01, has been quite modified by PO's, to the point I don't think I'd ever be able to get it close to stock. And if my winter attempts to get it back to as close to stock as possible don't pan out, I will be in the market for a new ride soon. People get jumped on for being too shortsighted, then people get jumped on for looking ahead. What gives?

It happens. It's just the type of forum we're on where many, not all, are so enthusiastic about the 250. If you ask the same question at say BARF or a broader kawasaki forum, they'll be convincing you to upgrade all the time. I've decided that if I want to upgrade, and i do, I probably wont ask anybody for opinions since it's about what i want not about what other people want.

Back on topic, would you be looking at supersports? I find alot of people here keep the same sport styling and upgrade to a supersport while I'm actually thinking about a versys or maybe a sport tourer instead. Just to have some variety.

It not that many are against upgrading. Many people here own or have owned very fast and capable bikes. The advice given is wise. There are many new riders on here that think just because it seems logical to move up that it is indeed the right choice at the right time.

I'm all for having a bigger bike in the stable. IF you are mature enough and have enough experience under your belt. Either way you will do what you want and in the end it's your funeral if you get in over your head.


That being said, is your decision based on looks or performance? Performance wise I would go with a twin bike, not new, and there are many choices in the range. For starters they look just as good as any I4 bike, your exhaust note will make them weep over the fact that you are now awesome, and there is a certain flair or idontknowwhat that comes with owning a twin sport or SS bike.

If not get a used gixxer. Everyone has them so you are sure to be popular.

Man i think u should plan on going the ride school... i got my ninja for like 4 moths and i plan on gething a 600cc+ in 3 years... (dont think i will sell my ninja 250r)... 600cc+ is not a toy like a 250cc+ is (not in the bad way i love all 250cc but the power is way diferent)... no one can ever say they know every thing about a bike... even the smartest runer can make mistake a lose his or her life... with he 250cc u can already die so wait a bit more and chill with your bike and try to get pro... than when time is right get a 600cc...

Good luck...

I am full kawa... ZX6R but with alot of mods...

Its not about a popularity contest. Its about riding what we want to ride. Like I said, I plan to do some work on mine in the winter, as I think the power is extremely lacking and sluggish, for ninjette standards, not just "riding fast" standards. If I can get my baby dialed in just right, and can get the performance to where I want it, then I'll be happy come next spring. If I can't, then I'll be in the market. I don't know what the PO's did (or didn't do). My pipes have been chopped. Don't know if the carbs were compensated with that. The bolt holes have been removed from the frame, so I can't even put the brackets on to support the stock exhaust system. The chain appears to be the original (with 15k miles). Its my first bike. I was aware of all this when I bought it. I look at it as a project bike that I'm also learning on. I would keep it if I got a new one. My internal debate is to get a new(er) 250 or move up. And I have looked for and read the advice on here and taken it to heart. Its when people start to get judgmental about people airing out their intentions in order to gain some insight that gets under my skin. The OP asked a reasonable question. I see it as perfectly reasonable to ask questions about the differences between bike sizes and what to expect.

honestly, I don't care if you upgrade. The important part is that you learn what you need to know before you get a bigger bike. Go do a ticket to ride event and then borrow someone elses bigger bike for a week. I rode a cbr600F3 for 2 months this summer, and then went to T2R and rode everything (650R, 1000, ZX14, vulcan900) that I could. I can honestly say that I am perfectly comfortable on a bigger bike, and know how to handle it, but I flat out like my 250 too much to justify replacing it. if you want to replace your 250 with a bigger bike, go for it; just make sure that you know what you're getting into before you do it. You'll learn a lot on a 250 when you push it, which is a good thing because that knowledge transfers to EVERY motorcycle ever made. If you get a bigger bike before you learn on the 250, you'll get into problems on a bike that is nowhere as forgiving as the 250. That's why there's so many people on this forum who urge people not to buy a bigger bike just for more power/better looks.

plus so many of us (myself included) know exactly what these bikes can do, and love them for it. It somewhat offends us when people trade for a bigger bike without ever experiencing that love because that's what this forum is all about; sharing the love for the Ninja 250R.

its important for everyone to give their own input too though. the OP seems to be new to motorcycles from other posts ive seen from him. i'm sure he'd be happy to get a little more experience with the 250 before moving up to the 600 if his life depended on it

The body position for long distance riding is not friendly, but you would know you have a 675 which is worse (or better depending how you look at it). The problem with r6's is that all the power is on the top end, like most 600's, so you really have to rev it. But by reving it so much youre most likely speeding so.... You're choice

my buddy has an sv650 and let me tell you i feel WAY more comfortable on my gixxer and zx6r's than his bike because of the seating and riding position. this was even before i bought mine and had ridden his plenty

I know my suggestions are different, and they are that way for a reason. OP is new. I am suggesting solid bikes that he should look into, I'm not forcing him to buy anything I have mentioned, just providing a glint of an idea. If he wants a SS, then he can go get one.

Rather than contradict each other's posts, how about we try to provide actual reasons that sway us one way or another. In order to help the OP why is it that you feel WAY more comfortable on a SS rather than a standard?

Less squibbling and more facts..

The dealerships where I live the 600cc SS are only 1-2k more than a Sv650 and I mean at that point I think most people wil go with the SS.

If the sv650sf were a little cheaper I would ride it.

Well, two different bikes for two different riders. I don't think there is much compromising there.

You just got your bike, didn't you? Are you crazy?


Just get a Hayabusa and load it with TireShine. Honestly, not a good move. I am very new to motorcycles and I know I don't need anything larger. A 250 is perfect to start out riding, I'd make sure you are completely confident that you'll know what you're doing before upgrading.

I like tge zx6 over the gixxer with the main reason being everyone has a gixxer. I also love ho the zx looks. Performance is there on both bikes so either way you will have a bad ass bike. If i could deal with the SS riding stance the zx is where i would go.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize you slept at a holiday inn express.

5 months and you are ready to turn it in. I just hope you are a responsible young'un and when you do get a bigger bike you respect it.

That aside, all the 600's are pretty much even keel. Pick which ever brand comes in your favorite color and fits your inseam.
