To take advantage of this, Kawasaki has upped the capacity of the Ninja from 250 to 296cc. Although the Ninja’s bore is still 62mm, the stroke has been increased and various internal components redesigned."

Interesting. I still don't like it though.

Typo aside, why would Kawasaki "hate" Portland? They gave me a Ninja 1000 to ride for 5 months and blog about my experiences. Must not hate Portland that much.

might just have to look at one come next spring, time to check the website and figure out how much the wife is going to complain about price. Just under $5k MSRP not bad I guess.

Agreed.
The graphics on the green one make me feel like I'm having a bad acid trip.
It is graphic design cat puke.

Is that why they made all of those Ninja commercials in Portland?

I just got back from visiting my friend in Redding. He bought a white one for his wife and she loves it! It looks like a mini ZX10. I threw a leg over it and the ergos a comfortable. I liked that Kawasaki put a fuel gauge in the insterment cluster.

I snapped a few pics at Beaverton Honda today. In my opinion, the bike (paint) looks better in person.

Are the green 13's the correct color green, or is it the photos that are off?
(I like the white)

I saw that same bike during the Bob's warehouse sale on Saturday. Sharp looking and feels really light. Entry level is no longer boring and ugly...
