I'm going to ride it around when i am 16 back to my house and my grandmas 60 mile ride and a bike is more fuel efficient then a truck.

Please pay attention. I said "650R", I didn't see "600r". The 650R is a vtwin that is much more beginner friendly and can easily accommodate your larger size if that is such a concern.

The problem with the 250-300 ninja is that they are so well engineered that when you have people tinkering with them without understanding what they're doing or doing the appropriate supporting mods, they actually negatively impact the engine performance. Common mistakes are often doing exhaust without appropriate needle clip and jet changes or needle clip and jet changes without exhaust. They are that well engineered that changing one thing has a drastic effect on the overall package. Do both mods however, and the thing just comes alive.

Again, please pay attention. I said "650r", I didn't see "600r". You really should start doing some more reading before you think about which bike to get.

More like 650r vs 600. Two completely different bikes.

Sorry Whip, but this is incorrect. The Ninja 250 is one of the best beginner bikes and really holds their resale value if they are kept in good shape and reasonably clean. They typically don't sit on CL for very long during the riding season and good deals are snatched up the day they are posted during the off season.

Most average riders will NOT be able to outgrow (experience) a Ninja 250. It is THAT capable of a bike. Not to mention an extremely forgiving platform. Anyone can twist the throttle, that is not developing rider skill. Anyone can go fast in a straight line, that is not developing rider skill.

I'll just post this here again. Notice how that puny little 250 is passing liter bikes on the outside of most corners? Notice how when all the bikes are at speed, the liter bikes can't quite catch up? The only time the liter bikes pass the little 250 is when they all have to scrub serious speed and the liter bikes has 4-6x the hp of the Ninja, only to be reeled back in within the next 1-3 corners?

Seeing as you're on the 919 forum did you check out the CB-1?
What i'm currently ridding (also my first bike) if you can go for the '91 version.
