    The Kawasaki Ninja has gained quite the reputation as a pocket sport bike recently. Small, light and fast? Research Ninja pricing, insurance, specs and to compare it to any other bike available today. In , Kawasaki comprehensively overhauled its mature Ninja platform. The most significant upgrade in its year lifespan saw the steel tube frame revised for increased rigidity up percent , the addition of a wider, section rear tire, a slipper clutch and optional antilock brakes.

    Visually, the old bike's humble looks give way to aggressive new creases intended to replicate the lines of the current ZX-6R and ZXR. The biggest changed between old and new is obviously in the engine.

    An increase in stroke from That means power grows from 31 to 39 bhp and torque from 16 to 20 lb. I used the littlest Ninja to scoot around Los Angeles for a week, making a couple hour-long freeway trips to Orange County as well. In town, its diminutive proportions and responsive nature see it busting traffic with ease. Small bikes like this one make easy work of tiny gaps between cars that even cc super sport bikes struggle with.

    Steering is fast, if not razor sharp and the relatively upright riding position takes the weight off your wrists. Together, those upright ergonomics, confidence inspiring brakes, lightweight and quick steering make it a great little city bike. Things are less happy on the highway, where the Ninja remains stable and the performance adequate, but the engine's limited capacity becomes apparent in the high revs its sustains at freeway speeds.

    Those vibrations carry through to your hands and feet, making them go numb after minutes of steady cruising. With numb hands, feet and posterior, my maximum cruise time without pulling over for a walk-it-off was capped at 45 minutes.

    Frustrating when trying to reach a destination that was 60 minutes away. A problem both in town and on the highway, the suspension feels to be sprung relatively stiffly, but with poor damping control. The two factors combining to make for a harsh, bouncy ride.

    On the highway, joints between the concrete slabs were a literal pain in the rear end while, in town, great care has to be taken to avoid pot holes and such for fear of being bounced off-line. So, earlier this week, I donned my leather onesie and took off for my favorite road, prepared to have some fun riding a slow bike fast. Entirely due to my inch inseam, dragging knee on a motorcycle is a routine, weekly occurrence for me.

    On this particular road — 39 from Azusa to Crystal Lake — my pucks tend to touch down in nearly every major corner. Here you go, this is the most impressive photo we came away with. Despite its vibes, it delivers reasonable performance even beyond legal highway speeds. The main problem here is the tires. The slipper clutch boosts confidence in-town while down-shifting quickly on uncertain surfaces and aids corner entry speed by smoothing downshifts.

    The Ninja feels much lighter than its lbs curb weight would suggest, aiding confidence in new riders and outright enjoyment in experienced ones. The optional ABS brakes are strong, delivering both good feel and complete confidence.
