Yeah, the honda does look interesting. Fuel injected and I happen to like thumpers also. It's a bit down on HP compared to the Kawi, but that's ok. We don't know the price yet. Kawi sells the 250 ninja at cost because most of them upgrade to ZX6R's after a year. Unless honda has the same strategy, that bike will fail to make it in the market.very interesting indeed. kind of a reversal there. i find the 250 way too small for me. you know honda is coming out with a 250?
$4600. Yes i know that's not a deal to brag about. But it it new and SE paint-just what I wanted. I looked at used ones '09 and '10 with low mileage, and there's not too much difference in price. The price of this bike is so low, percentages do not make much of a difference. Let's say you save 15% buying one that is a year old-a whopping $690. But 15% off a Gold Wing used versys new, now that's a big savings-a few thousand. And since I had to finance, a few hundred dollars won't make much difference to the payment on a 2 year loan. I'll pay an extra 30 or 35 bucks a month for a bike I KNOW it hasn't been abused.It is a very nice looking bike. I too have been wanting a second bike, but I'm leaning towards a cruiser 750+ just to mix things up a bit. how much did you pay out the door if you don't mind me asking?

Paid $4400 OTD last month on a NEW in crate 2009 ER-6N. Best $4400 cash I ever spent... of course it is hardly stock now and hardly street legal
LOL. "suck it up" is the best fix, and look behind you if you're not sure. i think my mirrors are finally situated ok, but they're certainly not perfect.I went from a 250R to a 650R. I will not be going back. The only benefits were that it felt slightly nimbler and the mirrors did not vibrate as much. Supposedly, there is a fix to the latter which I still havent found.
