Get the Ninja 250 and don't look back. And ignore all those who tell you "you will outgrow it" or "you will get bored of it" or "only girls and newbs ride 250's" and certainly don't let anyone ridicule you. You are a rider, and the 250 is the best cornering bike that there is. It accelerates as fast as a Subaru Impreza, and has a top speed of about 100mph. If you get a bigger bike, you will miss the 250. And also, getting a bike that is bigger than a 250 is not an "upgrade", it is simply a new bike, which you will have to learn all over again. Do a little research about beginners on big bikes, and make the decision for yourself.
