Thanks folks. Yeah, it's true that pics don't do her justice. It is one seriously sharp bike.

If anyone is still looking for more ways to waste time on the new Ninjette, I did a video review here: [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6f_VHe1wKw"]2013 Ninja 300 Review - YouTube[/nomedia].

Just watched the review, thanks for that!

God you're making me want to get another street bike......

I wish they would come out with a naked version of this though. I think it looks GREAT but I think since I have the 675 as a track bike I'd like a naked bike as a street bike. I might just keep an eye on Craigslist and try to snag a deal on a damaged one sometime.

Hahaha, I had seen that before but hadn't seen confirmation that it was definitely coming out. Then there's the matter of if it'll come to the US or not...

Ugh my wallet. I'm trying to build savings so that I can promptly blow them in a couple years when my car lease is up so I can get a Morgan Three-Wheeler, haha. But if the price is right on a naked 300...

Not to mention, a slipper clutch installed on a ST3 is roughly half the price of a new Ninja 300.

hey bro,

congrats. nice bike!

just watched your video.. i totally agree that the streety is an overkill for commuting (legally ). anything over 400cc is an overkill. i don't know how people commute on litre bikes, squaring tyres, wasting fuel.. a total waste, but each to their own i guess.

i was also thinking of selling up and replacing with something a lot smaller, but i just couldn't sell my baby! almost 60000km of fun and memories and still going strong. i might be showing early signs of bike hoarding. :P

so..... I quit commuting on the bike altogether and took up cycling instead. good for the health, waist size, wallet, etc.. :D

give us an update after a few months of riding :)

keep the shiny side up!

cheers

Thanks dude! And I think you made a good decision: if I could have more than one bike, I would have kept the Streety. Not a thing wrong with bike hoarding.

Ride safe,

I missed the possibility of a naked 300, if that does indeed get made and comes to the states, I may be very very tempted to pick one up.
