    On the plus side at least the buyers on the lower licenses will get a shit load of practise on getting gear changes right

    Probably, the Fazer 600 has an FZR600 engine, and you can fit an FZR600 engine in an FZR400 with minor frame modification, so it probably is an FZR400 engine

    The reason I'm selling it is because I'm too fat to fit on it, 20 minutes is all I can manage on it before I feel cramped.

    I'm in. Doubly so if they can make it naked.

    I've been scanning the local ads and saw a zeal 250 and apart from it being listed at silly money and having what looks like a 600 divvy front end, it really appeals.
    I'm not denying that it would be fun (under the right circumstances!), but the question of it being a successor to the ZXR400 (which is a far more practical bike) is still no for me!

    They make a Ninja 400, but it's no zxr400, it's a fancy commuter twin.

    I'm hoping the ZX25-R is a premium product, like the jdm bikes were.

    Unlikely, there's very few premium Japanese bikes sold by the UK importers, nearly everything new looks like a budget commuter, the premium bikes I can think of are R1, R6, Fireblade, ZX10, ZX636 and the GSXR1000, everything else is a bit meh.

    Iím sure it will be fun, but I doubt it will match a zxr400 for smiles IMO. 👍

    How many little bikes have you ridden in anger ?, as far as fun goes engine size has little to do with it tbh

    Lovely high redline. Better than a CB Two Fifty that I rode for a couple of years and probably much much more fun. Still too small physically for me, but what the heck, it is another bike in the stable of fun.
