0 30 BHP, 250 cc, Twin Cylinder Bikes are for Ladies..!!

Got yourself a "150/160/180/200/220/223" cc bike..?? Consider yourself "Definitely Male" Eh..?? Think again..

Yes, you have heard it right. In developed countries, 250 and lesser cc bikes are considered as beginner's bikes, ones that are fit for learners.

Even the 30 bhp, 250 cc Kawasaki Ninja is being promoted like our own Hero Honda "Why should Boys have all the Fun" Pleasure Scooter. The photo of a lady bending over the Ninja250R has been taken from the Ninja 250R link from the Kawasaki Website..!!

Kawasaki Ninja 250R, for beginners

Ouch..!! Did that hurt your "Definitely Male" ego..?? Maybe you were under the impression that riding a 150-220 cc cc bike certifies you as a "Hunk" on two wheels "Breaking Newton's Laws of Motions"..??

Well then, here is the rude wake up call for all such (including your's truly) MCP's (Motorcycling Chauvinist Piglets).. Even the Pulsar 220's and Karizma's will be considered nothing more than commuter bikes in the developed countries. As for the 100-125 cc bikes, they will probably be passed off as "Glorified lawnmower engines" on two wheels.

But nevermind, "East is after all East..!!" Also very soon our Rich "desi" kids will get a taste of the like's of the 1000 cc Yamaha R1's right here in India.

As for "beginner bikers" like me, just give me the Kawasaki Ninja 250R for around 1.75-2.00 Lakhs. I promise I won't mind being labelled as a "Sissy" on two wheels..!!
