I sold my 250 over the summer and am thinking about moving up to a 500 but from my research it seems the new 125 would be enough. The 2004 ZZR250 I had didn't have enough juice for me. It would strain to maintain 75m/hr or 120km/hr and the passing ability was non existent. Do you think I'd get bored of the 125?
Thanks ahead,
Adam

If you are up for it go straight for the 500 or 600. They aren't that much heavier. The 125 is definitely quicker than a 250 but it isn't 600 fast. Nowhere near.

No one can say if you are going to get bored or not.. It all depends on what you are looking for in the first place... If your a speed junkie, yes you will be bored..

I'm mostly concerned with roll on between say 75-90 mi/hr (120-140 km/hr). Is that a fairly quick roll on? I don't need to go faster that 90 but I'm often trying to avoid shitty drivers around me by accelerating passed them.

The 125's main improvement are the availability of more mid-range torque and taller gearing, meaning you've got space left on the tach and the torque to use it with the 125. Whether it's [i]enough[/i] for [i]you[/i] is personal preference, but it sho

The 125's main improvement are the availability of more mid-range torque and taller gearing, meaning you've got space left on the tach and the torque to use it with the 125. Whether it's enough for you is personal preference, but it should definitely be better than the 250R.

well look at it this way, at 75mph I read about 7.5k or so on the tach, maybe 8k on the tach? i;d have to go out again and test.

anyways, point being that there is still 4000 rpm of room for you to increase your speed on the highway. thets plenty i


well look at it this way, at 75mph I read about 7.5k or so on the tach, maybe 8k on the tach? i;d have to go out again and test.

anyways, point being that there is still 4000 rpm of room for you to increase your speed on the highway. thets plenty in my opinion, and also the top end is very nice, I'm still in the break in period, so it will only get better, but the 125 awakens after 5-6k rpm's it becomes very easy to increase speed quickly. also becomes more torquey, even at high speeds on the highway.

But its up to you. I like the gas savings and it goes the speeds I want it to.

However I am sure the 600 would be more adept on the highway. Gearing and power wise. Plus the added weight does help a bit with wind
