Even though I am not a target customer for such a bike (6’2″ 250 lbs.) I wanted to try this for a few reasons. First, to directly compare it to it’s main rival, the new Yamaha R3 that I reviewed last week. Second, to see how things have changed over the past 15+ years, from the previous generation which I had a tiny bit of seat time with – the 250. This is a rock solid package. It’s simply a scaled down sportbike in all regards, perfect for blasting down the road, a track day, twisties – just plain good cheap fun. Nothing stood out as any major flaws, Kawasaki has definitely put the small sport bike experience under their belt to great use.
