The 250 R Ninja has a better weight/power ratio than most tourers, for example compared to the ultimate tourer, the Harley Davidson FLHT Ultra Glide is one of the most popular tourers out there, just ask anyone doing the historic route 66. Weight=825 pounds, Horsepower 58 hp, so weight/hp ratio is about 14.
Harley Davidson Ultra FLHT Glide 825 pounds, 58 hp ratio 14.
Ninja 250R = 330 pounds, 33 hp. ratio is about 10.
So if a ultra glide is considered a good touring bike in spite of their elevated weight.power ratio, why not the Ninja.
