      Unfortunately it had to happen in front of my uncle who is already not too happy about me buying an expensive and fast motorcycle.

              A ninja or shinobi (忍者 or 忍び?) was a covert agent or mercenary of feudal Japan specializing in unorthodox arts of war. The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration, and assassination, as well as open combat in certain situations.The ninja, using covert methods of waging war, were contrasted with the samurai, who had strict rules about honor and combat.

              Juxtaposing this on the biking scenario, if you own a green ninja its a give away that you are a NINJA.

              So the only Ninja that lives up to its name is the BLACK NINJA bcos its covert, blends in and smokes others!!
              well put ....couldnt agree with u more ! guess its check mate !

              pointless." said reason. "Give it a try." whispered the heart ....

              • Finally took delivery of my bike today!! Can't believe how thrilled I was!

                Rode my black babe home in the afternoon amidst a host of admiring glances - and felt like a million bucks!!

                The ONLY bummer is that I have to run her in now - and quite frankly I find it a royal pain. Sitting astride a bike that so effortlessly pulls away from the rest of the pack and yet clamping down on that almost uncontrollable urge to open her up ....arrghh! I caught myself "cheating" a couple of times - when I saw the tach touch around 6K rpm momentarily and immediately cut back - but I'm certain that the people in the vehicles around me saw my big fat grin through my full-face lid!

                So my friends - spill the beans - am I the only one here who "sampled" his new bike's potential ?

                On a more serious note though - I hope I didn't do any damage to her .

                BTW, Manoj, the Chennai PBK sales head told me to expect the ZX6 in a few months!!?? Anybody else hear this?

                  @Sunnyside_up, Be easy on her and go for a long drive in the early hours of morning on this weekend for 800 kms, then you can step her up a lil bit for another 800 kms and voila, you can rip her after that

                  Its not the zx6 but the ninja 650r which is going to be launched. ZX-6R is a track oriented inline-4 cylinder bike and the 650r is a touring oriented parallel twin.

                    I confess. I did this a no of times. I recollect me writing at the forums that one has to be a member of the clergy to adhere to most unjust 4k rpm limit.
                    That PBK guy is playing his part in the game of hearsay !

                    Dood 7k kms in a month is a hell lot !!!111one one I dont think even bluevolt did those many (and he has done the maximum number of kms amongst us)
                    I doubt if we are anymore veteran than what you are !
                    650r is a touring oriented parallel twin.
                    and a very horrible one at that.

                    one day when i become rich i but ducati and then I race with cars. not now.

                      • Took delivery of my Green Ninja yesterday.

                        Man i was so nervous and shaky for something like this. My first sportsbike. I was feeling like i was meetin some girl over a date.

                        clocked a lil over 130 kms on day1. I must say this is the best I have ridden so far. Superrrrrrrrrrb refinement and smooth is an understatement. WORTH every ruppee. Those who are sitting on the fence and flipping coins, just go and get one. You wont regret it.

                        Regarding the 4k limit i got the hang of the engine sound so i know when to shift. but sometimes i shifted a lil over 4k while overtaking... like 4.5k or close to 5k.

                        Lovin every min with her. BIG thanks to Rahul (Bluevolt), Asim (Killer Instinct), JD666, Invincible, and especially Manson who helped me decide to go for the Ninja.

                          • Congratulations to all the Ninja owners. Its great to see that this bike is finding homes with so many people.

                            One question - The ninja is extremely popular with female riders abroad due to its low seat height. Any female ninja riders here??? or anyone seen one??

                              Yes Kawasaki corporate colour is Green but it does not mean that each bike in a corporate colour looks great. Imagine a bajaj bike in orange and blue.
                              The shade of Green is unique to Kawasaki; they ve got the patent rights of using such a colour and no other bike manufacturer can use this colour...
