It's a sports-tourer everywhere else, and IS one in reality too.
But stick a Ninja badge on it, and kids buy it and think they got a supersport,
then clipons, stickers, cheapo aftermarket exhaust.. and VOILA, you got a
bike that's got a reputation of being a noob squid top choice.
The bike is in reality more like a Versys then a ZX6R (Ninja 600), but few
know that (or care).
If it was sold with the Ninja 650 name here (EU), I wouldn't have bought it
for that reason alone.
Anyone wanna swap their naked Bandit 650 for my 650R?
