Default ninja 250 opinions

im thinkin about buying a kawasaki ninja 250 2009-2011 to ride a little more often. Are they worth it? i live in chicago and current project will not be that much fun in city driving. The first thing that i would do is throw a 160 rear on there/exhaust. so im just wondering what some opinions are. plus i feel like insurance will be really low on that bike. all opinions welcome!

they're pretty good bikes, if a little underpowered (depending on your views). they've got the same or very similar engine to the earliest version of the water cooled 250 twin in the gpz250, so parts are no issue if you need them.

if you're doing daily city trips then they're all good, but if youre expecting to do loads of long distance riding i'd go for something a little bigger.

Not enough ass to get you out of trouble on the highway.
And theyre light so youll get pushed around a lot more from wind and passing cars / bigrigs.

Sure a wider tire will help with wander in relation to shitty roads and ruts and "that guy who dropped a driveshaft and put a half a mile groove in the road, i hope it caught and flipped his ass" but it is still a light bike.
