All the Duels - Sport in the sauce two and a half! - Extra toy or first companion?

No murderous bridle, no superfluous weight, no fear of putting the handle in the corner … These days, these two little sporty 250ccs are a real breath of fresh air. Let’s go for a fun face to face !

Extra toy or first companion ?

Finally, there remains the thorny subject of the price of our two 250s! And there, the Yamaha is paying dearly for its fun attitude, at € 6,490, almost € 2,000 more than the little Ninja.

Exclusive and expensive, the WR 250 X is despite everything a great toy for the confirmed and wealthy motorcyclist who wants to have a little pleasure, in 2nd or 3rd bike…

For its part, the Ninja is ultimately to the 250 what the Honda CBR 125 is to eighths of a liter: an easy bike, with a good boil and ideal for perfecting..

At less than € 4,500, it’s a good little machine, quite versatile and inexpensive to maintain and insure … If you put your ego aside, it’s the ideal machine for those under 21 A license holders.

Table comments: on points, the Yamaha supermotard tilts a hair in front of the small Kawasaki road. More comfortable, more versatile and more practical, the Ninja 250 R is also very fun to drive. The WR250 X pays the price for its exclusivity, but what biker wouldn’t dream of owning such a toy in his garage ?
