    Cool Brilliant!!!

    Excellent review payeng. Would appreciate if you could give a comparo with the current quater-litres viz; CBR250R and Ninja250R in terms of : Handling, lower/mid/top end power delivery and the ride feel.

    Am sure the pricing wouldbe BANG in between the other two i.e ~2.5-2.6L OTR(Bangalore).

    Am loving the way our market is finally speakin up in terms of proper sports bikes. \m/

    There isn't any alignment problem in this pic...don't look at the bike...just use the front forks as a reference point...

    Payeng, I have read the review of the Ninja on your blog. How does the V twin stack up against the P twin?

    The Ninja 250R's parallel twin builds revs more enthusiastically than the V-Twin of the GT250R.. revving the Ninja is quite fun. Even though not as rev friendly as the Ninja 250R, the V-twin of the GT has good torque spread and does its job in an effortless manner.

    Both the engines feel linear and non-intimidating in its power and torque delivery.

    Ninja 250R: Near flawless machine. Without a doubt, the Best 250 C.C beginner Sports Bike in the World. The baby Ninja can be enjoyed by anyone from novices to seasoned riders


    GT250R: Not perfect like the Ninja but the GT250R does have a character which shines through, despite being heavier and lower on the peak power than the Ninja 250R. The GT will be enjoyable to those who can appreciate it's hardcore character


    CBR250R:

    The CBR250R doesn't have the mature character which the Ninja 250R and the GT250R has got. The 250 cc single cylinder of the CBR250R has a brisk mid range.. but when compared to the Ninja 250R and the GT250R, its doesn't have the same top end. Handling is also not in the league of the GT250R and the Ninja 250R.

    But due to its flickable nature (despite it's full fairing), the CBR250R will be enjoyed more in the traffic than the Ninja 250R and the GT250R.

    Unhappy

    Comet's fit and finish looks awesome in here - Kasinski Comet GT250 R

    Not sure why the Indian version looks like a second hand 2011 one.

    And the world over 2012 model has that design (like shown in the link above).. but India gets a so-so-ish body graphics.

    Comparing the prices world over and speculating that they are in a mood to price it between in 2.5 - 3L range... allowing them to say "Hey look you still need 50 grands for a baby ninja"

    here is the much awaited AutoCar review



    According to review below are some points [these are the view points of the reviewer only]

    Ups:
    good stability and ride quality
    good build quality
    Vibes less engine and smooth
    good engine

    Down:
    sporty ride position
    tyres
    performance not exceeds the other two [more or less same]
    Old dated styling [according to rest of the world ..but ..Not for Indians ]

    How can Sporty riding position be a downer when thats what the bike is intended to be?

    Tyres - Agreed

    Performance - Again, does this mean every new bike being launched must outperform its competition?
    Heck even the 2012 Ninja 650 gets a Bhp less than its own previous model!
    This isnt a racing machine where it has to outshine the market with BHP, Power to weight ratio with every upgrade!!
    Old dated styling - (I am an Indian thank you)

    well the points are from the review .. i will edit my post mentioning that these are review points
    probably they meant to say that riding in city/traffic is challenge due to sporty position, and performance they expected to be more [could be they forgot for a sec its 250 by looking its size ]

    and BTW i made my mind to get this superbike ,it satisfies my all requirements
