A few weeks ago while riding the 300 Ninja on a test ride, i kept thinking to myself, man, this feels so much like my old 2000 model VFR800 its not funny.

so i went a hunting today to see if i can find anything in the specs of the bike to prove/disprove my theory

VFR800 2000 model specs

http://www.simonevans.co.uk/v-four/vfr800.htm

now look at wheelbase and rake/trail, and seat height.

the ninja 300 certainly is a recipe for much fun riding :) and you can easily step off one of these to a VFR800 no problems. the vfr800 2000 model will have you leaning over more, but handle bar risers will fix that.

well done kawasaki:cool:

I think the dimensions of the bike have nothing to do with the handling, its got to do with sexy factor. The higher it is, the better the bike handles. Duh!

I credit the low gyroscopic mass. It isn't light, or especially flickably by its geometry. Thin tires and a small crank and cams are easier to persuade to change direction.

Ride a 450 MX bike against a 250 4t MX bike, or a 125cc 2t.

I agree! With both these theories! Sexiness and the geometry thing lol
