As someone has mentioned the ninja250 is currently 4k. So it'd probably be a good shout at £4800 ??? However I'd much rather have something like the ninja 250 but with a 400cc engine. That would be a bike which would sell, sell, sell if you ask me. Why ? As mentioned there's nothing doing that job, no more 400cc VFRs/RVFs and Aprillia have stopped making the RS250.

Come on Kawasaki, make us a 400cc ninja made for tearing arse round A and B roads, we'll all buy one !!!

I can't see a place for this bike in UK sales

Having ridden for a year on a full licence, I had no problem with a 600 and there are plenty of people out there offering lowering kits and power restrictors for much more tempting machinery.

If you look at something like a Gladius it doesn't have enough power to frighten a newbie and most 600's need serious revs before they produce anything like full power.

I suppose if I had to put a stick in the ground I would say £4,895 retail, but wait a year once the new rider got bored and traded up.

Putting it at around £4800 would seem right. More importantly if its to attract new bike buyers (who may otherwise choose a used bike to step up to) it should be launched with a stonking finance deal, attractive insurance and a sensibly priced range of accessories. No point in creating a new(ish) category if the insurance benefits don't reflect this- get the grouping sorted Kawasaki and it could be a real success
