These Chinese sourced bikes may get some sideways looks from the motorcycling community here in the United States and I get it. Taking the plunge into these very affordable machines can come can come with certain risks.
I think what CSC is doing here with their bikes is taking steps to reduce the risks by offering parts and good customer service. One does pay a premium for one of their bikes over what one might get from other online Chinese motorcycle/scooter dealers but that cost includes some peace of mind.
For the price ($2,195.00 USD) you are still getting quite a deal for a new 250cc motorcycle (229.9cc actually) and you have a one year, unlimited mileage warranty. Not too shabby, but does it work? Hit the link below to find out.
Earlier this year, Carmen decided she wanted to a change from her 1995 BMW R1100r motorcycle that she’s had for a while. She’s had several bikes over the years and her favorite was a 1989 Honda NX250 dual sport bike. She and I both loved that bike but she eventually wanted to ride to places that required more highways and the little NX was just not meant for highway speeds.
Now after having three street bikes she’s come full circle. We’ve moved south of Nashville where we have lots of secondary roads rolling through some great scenery which is perfect for cruising around at a leisurely pace and just “taking it in”.
The Ninja 1000 is one of three bikes based on Kawasaki’s 1043cc engine. The other two are the Z1000 “naked” or roadster and the new-for-2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000, big brother to the 2015 Kawasaki Versys 650 LT (Blog), one of the current webBikeWorld Project Bikes.
The Ninja 1000 is classified in the “sport” category by Kawasaki, which doesn’t really tell the whole story…or maybe it does.
I’m preparing to invoke a very over-used term in the world of motorcycle reviews: “all-’rounder”. There, I said it. Now that it’s out of the way I’ll elaborate.
