Sweet! Its about time

Finally. A bike new bike worth riding. Just found out about this today. Can't wait to see if I can talk the wife into trading the Blast in on one of these.

Not a bad looking bike. I think I would rather have the vtr250 if they ever come here.

How so? I sure would prefer the twin to the single. But FI trumps carbs every time. I think it looks good. Especially for an entry level bike. I'm sure its entertaining to ride. Probably comfy too.

Showed the wife yesterday. He face scrunched up. Said she likes the Nija better. She wasn't keen on the headlight or the colors. She likes the blue Nija. Guess I have lobying to do. Not that I would mind a nija 250. I'm just partial to riding red.

They have been bitching about this bike for a week or so now on another thread. To sum it up, it weighs more and has less power than a 1988 VTR250 and has the less than appealing VFR1200 look. Honda couldn't even build a new bike that equals something they built over 20 years ago. It cost more and has less power than the current market leader. At least they could have put in a twin and matched the power.

Come on Aprilia, how about y'all release a 250 "Ninja Killer" to North America and I ain't talking 'bout Canada either!

I have just joined this forum and one of the 1st things I read is a derogatory comment on one of my 2 bikes which is a 2010 VFR 1200 DCT. Still I guess beauty is the eye of the beholder. I hate to think what you think of the looks of my everyday transport (NO CAR) which is a 2009 Honda Deauville 700
