Gotta love ya night racing on the road sniper haha.

But yes, I met a young fella the other day that had read on the internet that a Ninja cheap Thai commuter bike was quicker than a Honda cheap Thai commuter bike... so 'lets line em up I say, You dump the clutch whenever ya ready'

Let him take half a bike length then off.... by the time I was in 3rd going for 4th was sailing past him, pulled 3-4 bike lenghths by the time we slowed down at 150.

Top speed they might wind out 1mph more, but that means nothing if it takes 2km to get there.

You must have been a better rider than him. I've owned a Ninja 250R and it's quite a bit quicker than the Honda, but you have to wring it's neck for it to be so. The power band kicks in at around 8k and it pulls pretty well up to it's 14k redline, but it's like a 125 at anything below 6k really, making it a bit of a PITA in real road riding circumstances. The Honda is much nicer to ride, with a nice broad spread of power.

As long as you dont go too far for the gearchange (ie 9500 approx) the cbr isnt too sluggish for 23hp, 1 or 2 teeth more on the rear sprocket is going to make it just right.

I don't know the power of the US carbed version, but the UK FI Ninja 250 is 32.5 BHP. I thought the CBR was 26 BHP?

We have about 23 hp. 23,9 or something with a slipon, but a teeny bit more torque and tractable power than the green thing... (not that any of it matters.. best rider will always pull a gap.) both would not pull a ****** of ya sister.

Honda UK specify 19.42 kW = 26.042694 BHP. You have more power than you thought.

Rear Wheel Horse Power (RWHP) is what is important. Which isn't the figure the manufactures state.

CBR about 23.
Ninja about 26-27.

ninja looses more HP on it's way to the rear wheel than the CBR. but still has more power, although it's higher up the RPM range. CBR has more upto around 9000rpm, after that the Ninja has more power. CBR is also lighter by about 10kg.

pulled in to the local bike night to look for another cbr250r in a sea of 1000's. all i found was this kid on his buddy's kawasaki 250 (he said his gsxr750 got stolen) someone said i should leave to the other bike spot with the "slower" bikes first. it was me , the kid , a 600rr , 1000rr , gsxr750 , and another 500cc suzuki something. cbr250 in the lead the whole way , followed by the 600rr and the 1000rr (we lost the kid and the other bikes)
the video was after we left the second spot , don't think he was trying at first but we did roll on 6th and i personally think the cbr had it.
at the end when i sip past him (plane lands) , there was a state trooper on the side of the freeway waiting for motorcycles to fly by due to bike night , but i got the pass ...because im ONLY DOING 75 !!!(can afford my own caps thank you very much).
you can see the trooper on the vid for a split second at the end.

this was not a real race , more like fun driving

btw-love the look in Xspurts faces when you tell them that you can wheelie a cbr250 when they tell you their 600 or 1000 "won't come up like that" , and then watch their heads explode when you do it. on a 250 !!

The Ninja 250 has carbs and the clutch has a heavier feel and powerband not as practical for city streets. Its was never a consideration when I shopped for a 250 bike.

Plus the single cylinder bike has a ton of character.
