    What i can understand from your post, is that for repair (labour)work refund, it depends on the mood of the insurance office and the company.

    Is it?

      May be...I just had an impression that given extra 30ccs and extra gear, Ninja would achieve higher speeds in those gears. Anyways....
      Figures (speeds in kph in top gear), just in case-
      ...........Ninja.......P220
      4k..........60..........64
      5k..........70..........79

        while i could have checked in the riding gear thread but was wondering if there any specifically available for the ninja that any of u using.

        i know somebody coming from Canada in Feb, so could call for it from there also in case any body knows stuff from there/US
        I use RJay's saddle bags, they are great. Should be available at Bachoo motors, Mumbai. they are the distributors for RJay's

        P220 is a fast bike as well - top speed difference would be 20 kms max on speedo if I am not wrong. But I believe Ninja revs much higher so that might be the difference.

          hope my explaination was good enough...
          yeh thanks for the info.

            The P220 runs out of steam at higher end ,due to being 2 valves single cylinder,and being non LC engine, heat takes it's toll.

                  yep... i'd pick a 400RR at that pricetag.

                  a 58bhp 250R would a blast to ride tho.

                    WOW! But i have read every where on the net that one should not turbo charge a Ninja 250R, its a overkill it seems...

                        I do not understand the logic. Just because Ninja is more powerful than the P-220 , why should it have a higher speed at a given RPM? Isnt that a function of the gear ratios of the two bikes?

                        Look at it this way, at 8K RPM, the Ninja is entering its powerband whereas the P220 is pretty much on the way to trailing off.

                        That turbo looks complicated. I will just take the performance ECU thank you. I wish someone would come up with one for the Ninja.

                          That's insane power!!! The power is nearly doubled!!!
                          Wouldn't there be an issue when the turbo starts kicking in, IF, all of a sudden?

                            • Guidance needed... Ninja250R

                              Hi All,
                              Im a novice to this XBHP community .... i bought the Ninja250R Lime Green on 31st Dec'10 and it's been 13 days now that i have been riding it.. 550+ km done and during the 1st phase of full tank it showed a efficicency of 25km/Ltr... but there are some concerns for the experienced members of this forum:
                              1. On 31st Dec i rolled the bike out from the Showroom and proceed to Khivraj for a briefing by Prasanna. then i took it to the temple with my parents... the experience i had with the power then is different from what it is now. the torque whihc was present initially looks to have reduced a lil...I rode for around 150Km at higher rpms(6-8K) but in intervals... Is this a serious matter of concern for the pickup to drop(when drove below 4K rpm) or it's normal.
                              2. what will the be other driving tips during the first 800Kms.
                              3. Changing the gears at stationary position... How does it effect the gear box.
                              4. During the First start in the morning is it required to wait untill the engine settles down i.e below 2K rpm...

                                +1, The ECU makes more sense for our conditions and in terms of reliability, but the turbo makes it much more fun to drive
