  • By Arjun Hunurkar, January 16, 2011 @ 11:06 am

    I think CBR 250 is not so efficiency, ninja is better in performance, looks and speed, ninja is worth than cbr250, guranteed!

  • By Vitaliy, January 16, 2011 @ 12:56 pm

  • By indra e r, February 5, 2011 @ 6:42 am

    i think ninja 250 is much better with pararel twin cylinder have very good power and torque compare with cbr 250..

  • By Gopikrishna, February 10, 2011 @ 9:52 am

    At such a price I think cbr 250 is the best and it also comes with new features ..

  • By bikes, February 12, 2011 @ 9:00 pm

    I am pretty sure whoever wrote this is bias. The ninja 250 is one of the most reliable bikes for your $$$.

  • By kapil anand, February 25, 2011 @ 11:02 pm

    i own a ninja and believe you me , its absolutely reliable and the mileage i get is about 27 kmpl..and i drive above 100kmph times i take it up to 140 to 170 kmph. CBR 250 is single cylinder single exhaust while ninja is double cylinder double exhaust and that justifies higher price ..if you love speed, its ninja,,

  • By roans, March 2, 2011 @ 9:52 am
