What we learned about the Ninja 650r

Oh the sweet motor

The 650r is marketed as a beginners bike WTF! No wonder you see do many crashed. It is not a first bike IMO.

It makes good torque with nice linear power. Third gear WFO sees you approaching 100mph rather quickly.

The stock suspension is bottom of the line, no adjustments front, rear has pre-load adjustment.

Weight = 375lbs dry

Frame seems very rigid, a few wheelies and stoppies without a problem.

Function verified. Time to look for some suspension.
