I just sat on a Ninja 250 yesterday.. Then I sat on the CBR and it is seriously 100% more comfortable. The seat and riding position is absolutely AMAZING. Grips feel a little too close together but Im also used to dirtbike handles. Just sitting on the bike feels sporty. Everyone is going to be so happy with theirs!!

JDM ! We are excited for you ! I think both the red and black look fabulous. We are all counting on more first impressions and ride report and more photos as soon as you can! I can't believe someone in the states is actually taking delivery! Already appreciating your initial comments on riding position, seat comfort, etc.........

Im not sure if Ill be the first in the US to have it but I like to think so. Also the bikes VINs are number sequentially.. I have number 7 out of about 4,000 licensed in the US.. I wonder who is getting number 1??

Some guy in Hawaii. Ships would logically stop there first right? :D

This is great news any way though. Get us some video asap!

Congrats bro, really happy for you. Awaiting ride report.
And how you planning to do the run-in period of the bike?

Ride hard, ride safe.
Cheers!!!!

Thanks for the review. On a whole, did the Ninja feel a little fatter and bigger than CBR?

Im not quite sure how to explain it. The Ninja felt like it wouldnt be fun to ride when you sit on it. I wouldnt say it felt bigger but the CBR felt smoother.. If that make sense. The tank on the CBR felt awesome on my legs.

As for the break in period.. I plan to take the first couple days slow since Im not used to this type of riding position but after that I plan on not taking it over 6k rpm until break in period is done.

I am going green with envy. But, it is overcome, by my happiness for you. Taking the practical for my safety course (new rider) ASAP and awaiting the notification that my CBR250 has arrived.

Its non from the picture. But didn't Kim write that only ABS models were to be imported to DM? The ABS version of that beautiful red machine is what I'm waiting for.
