Salam 1 Malaysia.
I'm a moped rider. Almost 10 years using 135cc bike to travel from South to North, East to West Malaysia. In other words, daily use. Now I'm getting bored and need to upgrade for slightly bigger bike. I'm looking for maximum 250cc bike which i don't need to change my driving license (B2).
Since there's a lot of choice in the marketplace, i might want to ask you guys here; it is worth it if i spend to buy a single cylinder 250cc bike for my daily usage which i can confirm average of my travel distance in a month should be around 1200km.
Alhamdulillah, 10years with 135LC? i bet u are the 1st generation for that moped, isnt'it? well im a 2nd generation, yep, 135LC ES type, with a hand clutch mode. its fun bike.
well personally, there are some related issue between moped and this little ninja.
before, i saw the review from professional rider in this ninja launching ceremony in Malaysia at Sepang Circuit, you can watch it at youtube, and the rider said, if your the moped rider and this bike is for you. with a single piston engine, the not too big CC capacity give you a not so big different from our previous moped. and the great thing is, this ninja also using a 4stroke system, quite similar with the moped but come with a larger power inside.
compare with the other manufacturer, in Malaysia the new R25, CBR250, etc come with double piston spec and cost us about MYR20K above, even with Ninja 250 SE. But, this Ninja 250SL offered us a single piston engine and only cost us about MYR17K ++. i don't think the other manufacturer had a single piston engine with this 250cc categories. (in Malaysia)
of cause the 2 silinder engine can beat you, but trust me there are not a big different in the top speed, but in the middle RPM, were ahead bro.
