Congratulations on your new baby!! This bike needs to be ridden, so don't waste time leaving it idle. Looks like you stay in an apartment. Try to get some good security for it. Wishing you many, many happy miles with it

Hi
Congratulations on the new bike. It really does look beautiful in the green colour. With the cramped hyderabad roads i hope you will find the time and space to enjoy the power of the bike. Cheers.

Congratulations on the ninja. Looks an absolute stunner in green. Actually all the ninjas i have seen have been green. And as someone who posted below rightly said, this shade of green definately does define the ninja. Wishing you many joyful miles riding your green beauty.

@Chetan

Congrats on the buy! the Ninja is really a stunner, You've bought one of the best bikes available in that segment.

The reason behind this is that the Ninja is available in only two shades black and green. The latter is generally chosen as it is a different shade.

@downsouth.. Congrats on the new ride. Looks "wow". Would suggest you to get a feel of the bike, understand its capabilities and then open up the throttle..

Wishing you a safe & enjoyable ownership. Looking forward to a full-fledged ownership report.

BTW have you been asked the typical Indian question "Mileage kya deti hai ?"

BTW whats a Saree guard doing on a super bike? Do they really think that someone will sit on it in a saree or elope with the bride from a Shaadi mandap
Hi MC,

yup I have been asked that question several times, since I have never checked the figures myself due to the Run-in I do not know. But pro-Biking claims 25Kmpl city and 28-30 highway. But guess it all depends on various factors.

Saree Guard is something which is due to the regulations of the Motor Vehicle Act I guess, well I plan wait before I remove it, maybe will be useful for a side luggage bag in the future.

No wonder you chose to build your house far and beyond, free from the hustle and bustle just so you get to use an excuse to drive the Ninja everyday. Congrats on the sensible decision, we should all learn how to plan our lives like you .
Absynth...I really wish that was the case, but yeah now I have an excuse to take it out more often and hoping my wife does not read this post LOL

Nope it is not new, I think Pro-biking was selling the Ninja 250R for at least the last 2 years.

And how is the 'aam janta's reaction on seeing the bike?
Damn, I am happy my helmet has a tinted visor, unlike Bangalore or Mumbai imports are not many so this surely is eye candy from kids to grand pa's everyone is ogling and sometimes it can get very very uncomfortable.

The first comment inside probiking building was 'saab light on hai' and the second one from school kids was 'Arre Moti bike hai'(That fat bike) My wife and I could not stop laughing, but I guess it is the small kids who smile and wave back

Congrats buddy!

Btw, is this the 2011 edition of the Ninja? I see the meters in white and the rear in green. In the earlier Ninja's the meters were black and the rear plastic part was also black on a green one. Yours is completely Green!

Congrats on your purchase. Nice to see another ninja join the club

Good to see you already have a good set of riding gear. This is one of the most reliable bikes so dont think twice, just hop on and ride away

Glad to note that our ownership threads helped you decide without much ado.

Ride safe. Do let us know if you need any help or clarifications.

Congrats on your new bike and green is one colour which personifies NINJA, its like shouting on top of your voice that I have a Ninja in my garage. Lucky you... need some more time before I can lay my hands on this as my better half is against anything on two wheels now post my accident in 2009.

I wish there was more time to Ride, but due to domestic reasons priority to ride is down that list, but it should change soon, very soon.

LOL, If I can find time, there is no space inside the city. Fortunately I can reach the Siddipet/Shamirpet Highway in less than 2 Km so I do hope to exploit it.

You go that right, this is the so called 2011, which comes with the White speedo dials, and the rear used to be painted black, frankly I would have wished they had left it the same way. The infamous Saree guard is bigger as well.

Thanks Aditya, it is members like us and forums like T-Bhp who help in getting the information out to others. Unlike the west where the riding conditions, traffic and safety regulations are different, we need reliable and quality information. Which I found in your thread and other owner's as well. It took me a log time to go over the info, but after that couple of hours to formalize the rest.

I had ordered my riding gear 2 months before I had decided to purchase any bike.

Thanks, my riding gear was priority, before I bought the bike.

Huh, my wife still is jittery when I take the bike for a spin, and I have never once met with an Accident, since we have been married. On the contrary, she has had minor ones at least 3 times, still she fear's my riding abilities.
