We've all just seen it before where someone "out-grows" their "learner" bike in a year and goes right for a Super Sport. Usually doesn't end well.
As a side note, in my experience when someone "outgrows" a small bike that fast, all it means is they have to slow down to a crawl to take any sort of corner (because they lack the skill to navigate it any faster than a snail's pace) and make up for it by hammering the throttle on the straights.
I challenge anyone who thinks they "outgrew" a 300 in a year or two to go up against some of the small displacement racers and see how much they still have to learn about the limits of the bike.

If you want a bigger bike because you want a bigger bike, that's one thing. If you think your skill exceeds the limitations of the machine, in almost every single case I believe you're either lying or oblivious.

As a US resident, I came to my senses, and realized I should wait for the Aprilia RS 660. And that's why they don't want to sell the ZX-25R here.

Boy, the more I hear about the Zed-X25R, the more I need to take a ride on one!!! If it fits me, the seating position is comparable to the N300 and N1K, and it's priced reasonably, it could be my next bike!!! :emot-pray: I really miss the power that my N1K had; this bike seems like the way to have that again, given my vertically challenged frame. Of course, the aftermarket would probably have to kick in with a touring windscreen and a way to mount bags because I doubt that I could justify having one around solely for tearing up twisties...:revv: I'm going to write an impassioned email to Kawi and BEG them to bring it to the States!!!

Check the Ninjette forum. There is someone there that already talked to a dealer and they may be able to do a custom order if they reach a certain number of interested people.
