'08 250 Capabilities
I have seen alot of stuff on the net saying how great this bike is, but not alot on what it can do... Any of you guys here up to a riders review? Looking for the kind of stuff you'd get from riding this thing more than one time and saying yeah its great! has anyone had any long rides? what do you like or not? How fast have you got it to (anyone top out)? how is it at freeway speed (80ish?) does it still have enough power to get up and go at this speed? do you feel like your going to get blown off the road by passing cars?
Looking for honest pros an cons. I am SERIOUSLY considering this bike as my first, but due to the fact they are very hard to find in this area, I can't even sit on one before i throw some money in and wait even longer for it to be delivered.
I know this isn't going to be a GSXR thats why im interested in it. Honestly I've been shopping around for almost a year, looking strongly at the Suzuki GS500f. Now that I almost have enough money built up its decision time.
Since my search started, I've literally sat on at about 100 bikes.. The most comfortable has been a Katana 600, SV650, Ninja 500 and GS500f. Untill these new 250s came out I was about sold on the GS500f. How would you say it compares ergonomics wise to those listed? Anything similar? Hopefully I'll be able to actually catch one of the 09's in the stealership soon...
Thanks for any input.
