296cc (more power), fuel injection (better cold starts, pickup/throttle response, smoother power delivery, more convenient), improved frame for better handling, vastly updated styling (seriously one of the coolest looking sport bikes on the market right now - definitely no budget-bike styling here!)! But it still retails at $4800! I'm seriously going to get on my knees and BEG my girlfriend to buy this bike (she's been looking at used Ninja 250's) with some of her tax money lol! I'm telling you guys, Kawasaki knows the current market better than any other manufacturer, they are massively on top of their game from that angle. Between the KLX in '08, the updated ZX14, and now this. I think this new bike is going to crush the CBR250 in terms of sheer sales volume. In fact, I'd wager you'll even see a lot of people trading in their brand new CBR's to get this instead. Don't get me wrong, the CBR is a cool bike and for sure I like it, but this new Kawasaki is just on a different level!
