Words : Avin Richards, Venkat Shyam, Jasirman and Tejesh (MotoReps, Bangalore)
Bajaj and Kawasaki organized a Ninja 250R test ride campaign on Sunday the 20th June .The Test Ride was called as “Responsible Riding” and for prospective customers to have a first hand feel of the machine before they put their money on it.The emphasis was on riding safe with more power.
The event was conceptualised & fine tuned by our motorep Venkat Shyam & was well executed by Khivraj motors Probiking dealers from Bangalore.
This test ride was “By Invitation Only” & thirty prospective customers got to ride the Ninja 250 R to their heart’s content on the cordoned area of the NECE Road.This event was supported by NECE & organizational help was provided by Motor-sport Federation of Karnataka. Bajaj was well represted by their Sales & service teams.
The event also consisted of existing Ninja owners who gave feed back on the ownership experience so far.
The test ride event was a very controlled event and had all safety measures taken before hand. One of our members Jeeva who is a track addict goes on to say that the bike sounds and feels like any other at the low revs and its when the revs build that the Ninja comes alive. He personally took it to a top speed of 147kmph and swears by the high speed stability of the machine.The Ninja on road in Bangalore comes up to 3 lakh 19 thousand , far from many ,but in most ways still worth every penny you pay.
