I was wondering the same thing. I really wish Kawasaki would sell that model here. I love the looks of it, and I know it would sell here. If only it had like 5-10 more hp, it would be perfect!Nate S said:Is it possible? has anyone done it? Reason I ask is my wife really really likes the canadian 250 over the US one ( dont blame her ) So I figure if she is gonna have her own bike she might as well love the way it looks. Any help is appreciated.
Well I was wondering.... someone had told me that the "import" version weighs just a bit more than the standard 250r (due to the different frame & plastics). Is this true?Kwakazzr250 said:
Mike what do you mean only if it had 5-10 more hp? Compared to what mate?
Yes it is amazing. Now you know why I want one.Kwakazzr250 said:the dry weight is up a little however not that much, but the aerodynamics are better. I outrun my mates 250 ninja, however he does weigh more than me. Do you know if you were to workout the power of the 250 per litre it will be right up there with some of the top road bikes going around. Interesting isn't it.
As for our accent, yeah most people from the US love it. I really love women with Irish or Scottish accents. I think they sound great.
If you want to head down this way, there is always a place for you to stay in sunny Queensland. I live right near the beach.

As for wanting more power, there is also a ZXR-250 (aka ZX-2R), which is a 250cc inline four cylinder bike. I believe it makes a little more power than the EX250s we get here in Canada. Too bad they're not street legal (emissions I think) - they're only sold over in Japan and certain places in Asia, I think.
I'm not so sure that's true.. One of my riding buddies imported her SV from Canada, it's still kph.nace said:importing a bike from canada?
it was posted somewhere before, not a 250 specifically but a bike, cant remember what board or what forum but from what i can remember all the guy had to do was make sure the speedometer displayed mph instead of kph (digital spedo) fill out a some paperwork at customs and thats it...
if i can find it again, i'll post it here...
but maybe a post in the general cf sportbike forum would get you a quicker response....
Some have both, but all the EX250s I've seen around here only had Km/h on the speedo (analog). It depends on the bike (and the car for that matter - my friend's BMW only has Km/h as well).nace said:if it's analog, iwould imagine it is the same as in your car, you will have both mph and kph:confused
