              I believe people DO NOT read the title of the thread before posting something. This thread is supposed to be the 'OWNERSHIP EXPERIENCE' thread for the Ninja 250R, while people are doing everything but that!

              For anything else, there is a thread specifically dedicated to the Ninja 250R in the 'News' section, just so people know. This thread is being locked till the time someone (some owner!) actually finds the time and the effort to put up their actual ownership experience. PM me, and I'll re-open the thread.

              Till then...

              Topic Locked.

                Where are them pictures?
                yeah the problem sometimes isnt just about keeping below 4K. If i want to keep it beelow 4k i will have to hover at 4K. Maintaining a constant RPM is certainly gonna harm my engine in the run in phase. So the only option is to exceed 4K

                I aint gonna redline the bike ofc. ( incase anyone is getting the ideas that i aint loving my bike enough )

                Now the pics are real bad. It was my friend clicking em and he goofed up clicking me more often than the bike. Will soon post only bike pics. oh and btw that ugly front number plate is going into my Doghouse very soon.And so will the utterly ridiculous saree gaurd

                  I dont know if i could write much about the ownership experience yet. I make a pretty bad writer too.

                  But the Ninja 250R just wont let me sleep..so what the hell..i might as well post about it. My first days ride has ended many hours ago but I am still reeling under the after effects of this bike.

                  During the waiting phase of the bike I was gobbling up Ninja matter over the web like a catastrophic virus. I came accross many articles/reviews which spoke about the 250R s special ability to inspire and induce confidence in you. Back then when i read these lines I never really understood as to what that feeling can be. Such things sounded much like what a Fanboy would say !
                  But hell this bike really is so very confidence inspiring !! its unbelievable how fast I could gel with it. Its handling really is awesome and it gathers speed at an alarming rate. The traffic ( which was a plenty in the evening ) didnt pose any problems to this 172 Kg (?) bike either.

                  I aint too experienced with bikes. I have always had a passion for fine machines but I somehow was only attracted to cars, untill now.
                  Nearing 6K to 8K you really start to feel that theres gonna be a big boom underneath the fairing. The engine seems to be bracing itself up for the maximum oncoming onslaught of power delivery.
                  I didnt take it beyond 8 K due to the engine run in mess (even 8 K was achieved only once when I wished to overtake a speeding car at the old Pune Mumbai highway. To my surprise i did it with relative ease. When I looked at my Speedo i was doing 100, and didnt even realise that the car I was overtaking was in my rear view.
                  Not advocating high speeds but just wanting to make a note of the easy highway cruising ability of this bike too.

                  It really is a compact SBK with a serious enough power for our conditions and it wont be an exaggeration to say it has serious enough power for ANY conditions. All the reviews make perfect sense to me now.

                  Gotta catch some sleep if I gotta do any serious engine break in tomorrow

                          Congrats Tenhut for owning one of the first Ninja 250 in India. I`m sure like all other new bike owners you are also undergoing the painful experience of keeping the bike revs low till the engine has run-in . Well certainly it would be worth the wait before you can wring the throttle to the max .
                          After good media reviews for the Ninja 250 we would come to know the actual real life ownership experience of the bike and also the service provided by Probiking . Please do update us with the service costs and spare part prices of the Ninja . Congrats again and Ride safe
                          GO FAST OR GO HOME !

                                Have booking and deliveries in Bangalore started? An acquaintance of mine seems interested and he was asking me this too.
