We have a really clean 500cc Ninja with very low km (15'600) that would make an awesome bike for a starter or a seasoned rider alike. Comes from a full service at our shop and it's ready to go.
If you want a motorcycle that has proven itself time and time again, look no further than the Kawasaki Ninja 500R. The 500R is the older brother to the Kawasaki Ninja 250R, and boasts a beefier engine coming in at nearly 500cc's.
The ninja 500R is equipped with a 498cc Liquid Cooled, In line 4 stroke twin engine that can hit a top speed of around 120mph, and runs the quarter mile in 12 seconds. This is more than enough power for the street, and can leave you grinning ear to ear on the track. The bike has quite a bit of mid-range power but really comes through once you wind it up a bit,that's where the fun really begins.
The Bike weighs in at a trim 388 pounds dry, and 437 when fully fueled which helps if you are ever doing slow speed maneuvers and you need to stop the bike from tipping over. The ninja really comes into its own when used in a sprawling urban landscape. Its slim design makes it a breeze to lane split between California traffic, and the engine has enough grunt to speed off from danger with the twist of a wrist.
