          Also, the 1st service doesn't entail anything other than an oil filter + oil change, so there shouldn't be a cause for concern, unless you have some niggles you want them to look into at the service.
          Actually the kolhapur pbk is a sales n service center for ninja , till date they have sold quite a few ninja's in n around kolhapur & have serviced a few bike's too ( thats what they said over the phone )....absolutely no niggles whatsoever touchwood ! thnx anyway !!

              The backgroundThe Review

              Looks: The looks of this bike are sporty and it shows that it is a younger sibling of the ZX series. The fairings and the tank are meaty and the headlights give it a mean appearance that Kawasaki is known for. The front contours culminate into a well shaped rear end. The 130/70 rear tyre does not give it looks of a big bike from the rear but then again it is not that big a bike. Overall it is a sporty bike with envy inspiring looks. We can safely say it is the best looking bike in its category.

              Build: The bike has world class build quality. Each and every part of the bike is the same which is offered in global market in all countries and the Japanese build quality shows in the bike. The engine sounds refined not as much as a Honda engine but then again Kawasaki engines have proved themselves on the track enough times and the technology of the ninja engine is coming from the same breed of engines. The fairings do not rattle at speeds and a fitted well. The gear shifts are smooth. They have a solid feel of the gear clicking into position.

              Performance:J). The braking is superior quality. One has the confidence of riding this bike on high speeds because he knows that the moment he applies those brakes the bike will come to a standstill within moments. The tyre grips well on the tarmac.

              Ride quality: I have read a lot of people talk about the ninja being just 30 cc more than the p220 or just one cylinder more or just 12 bhp more than the p220 and that this increase does not justify the price tag it has. Apart from the technical superiority in its league one more thing that makes the ninja a class apart from other bikes in its category available in India is the ride quality. The comfortable riding position and the suspensions combined with the great performing engine provide a great riding experience. The suspensions are bit hard on bad roads but that is more to do with the suspension settings tweaked for track performance. I still have to experiment with the 5 setting options for the mono-shock in the rear.

              Conclusion

              I have ridden my ninja for almost 1100 kms and am yet to experiment with hard acceleration but even then I have had my share of fun accelerating moderately in the traffic and it is adequate to leave all of the traffic behind. The bike has enough power to give me an adrenaline boost and it has renewed my passion for biking. I had started going to my office in my car off late before I bought my ninja. I have again started going to my office on my bike. I enjoy the ride between my home and office. This is a very practical sports bike for Indian conditions. I can utilize its full potential on the expressways and I enough reserve power range in normal traffic to accelerate quickly out of situations. The moment we move into higher cc category they no longer seem practical options and are more of a weekend bikes. Also in traffic the 600cc and the 1000cc bike heat up very quickly whereas the ninja fares pretty well in bumper to bumper traffic. It is also a very well balanced and not so heavy bike. As soon as I get a chance to take it to the hills I am sure I will be in for a surprise on the twisties. J

                          • That helmet looks great!

                            How much drag does the cam create at speed? does it push the helmet backwards?

                              I feel the drag after 120... it does not push the camera backwards because the fitting is very tight.

                              • Hi Friends,

                                I'm also one of the happy Ninja owners... and have done about 3700 Kms so far.

                                I would like to upgrade the stock air filter to K&N replacement filter; Also, i would like to upgrade the stock exhaust to Two Brothers Racing V.A.L.E M2 Slip-on. I would like to get more power (even it's 1 Bhp more) & midrange out of the bike. Will this upgrade offer the same?

                                Has anyone done such upgrades? If so, what's the feedback?


                                P.S:
                                I would wait upto 6000 Kms before doing this upgrade.
