I would get the ninja 250 in a heartbeat if it didn't look like it was from the 80s.
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Good thinking about the gearOriginally posted by MotoPosse Cowboy:
I have the gear budgeted I think. I want the Kushitani Real Ride pants and jacket. When I'm ready to buy, I'll try to find them for around $600, which I think have seen once or twice, but usually they're like $800. Helmet I need to try on, so I won't say without trying I want an arai, but I'll see; gonna spend no more than $300. Then maybe $100 for non-robocop looking boots, something like sidi city boots if I can find that. I already have violator pro gloves. I might also get a back protector if I try one on somewhere and it's cheap.
But anyway, I've done lots of research and those are good recommendations Carnage. I'll keep searching for one of those used or if I get too impatient I'll just snag a ninja250. What is Kawasaki implying when all the pictures of it on their website have it ridden by a girl?Whatever, the haters don't know shit anyway.Thanks for the info about the Aprilia anyway and Looney, the TZR250 must be a Euro model, not on Yamaha's website.
On a totally unrelated note, my first banana:. Badass.

Yea, that's definitely an awesome bike, but the reason why I asked about the 50 was because it's relatively cheap. That's ok though, I'm starting to see better used deals out there now that I know what I'm looking for.
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Sounds like you have something against Kushitani. I'm not "wining" and dining anyone and neither am I whining. I already got some good replies about the RS50 and I think we determined that it's a cool looking scooter, but thanks for your concern about my propensity to pick up chicks.look at this guy, wining that he has no money to spend on a bike, then wanting KUSHITANI leathers! yeah, you'll look real cool and pick up a lot of chicks doin 45mph in your kushitani leathers on your RS50 moped
Doesn't the RS50 cost around 3 grand? For 3 grand, you can have a brand new 250, with top speed around 110mph. Better yet, why would you buy a brand new beginner bike? Most likely you'll wreck it, so it won't be so new any more..and besides, you'll outgrow its power in 6-12 months depending on your abilities, and will sell it to get a bigger bike. Go on www.cycletrader.com and get a used 250 for around $1700 in excellent condition.
The RS50 won't teach you anything, unless you're 15 years old and weigh 120lbs. It's more of a collector's bike, like a pocketbike. If you got no money to waste, forget about Kushitani's.
