I assume some of you saw this? Pretty cool looking kit for a Ninja 250. And I am definitely not a Streetfighter type person normally.

Cool mods. But I wonder who would want to keep a 250 around long enough to enjoy them.

I think it would be a fun way to have a cool streetfighter for under 4K. I think it would have been better on an SV650 personally since that is just a better long-term hold of a bike.

Lot of people love their 250s...

If I were shorter/lighter, I would snap up the Ninja 300...especially if it were offered in the naked version in the US. A kit like that would be a great alternative to a factory naked bike.

But alas, at 6'2, over 200 with gear on, and with an occasional passenger, I just don't think the bike would be the right fit for me...would have to step up to the honda 500 (which comes naked).

I had a Ninja 250 and found it surprisingly roomy. The engine is pretty gutless though and is pretty much pegged at redline a lot.

It isn't often that an off-beat bike build leaves me speechless. This is one of those times.

It was a friggin work of art!

My jaw dropped when I saw that thing at the 2005 NYC bike show. That MH and the yellow Sports Classic were my fav bikes. I cant believe its coming up on 10 yrs!

He is the original owner and put 4k miles on it.  The funny part is that everything else in that garage seemed grimy but there it stood in all its glory.

Magnet to help hold it closed. Four hundred for those is too pricey, though it'd be a nice companion helmet to my Bell Custom. I think I'd go with a Biltwell Gringo.
