Hi long time lurker. Just got one of the pre-released 2009 yesterday.





Here a pic of the back of the owner's manual

Congratz!! My question is what city did you get it and what was your OTD price? Originally I liked green over all colors but the more I see red, the more I want to get a red one now lol.

Congrats.
Any first thoughts?
Loving every minute on the bike. Got lucky the last two day with no rain in S. Florida.

interesting... my owner's manual does not have any number after the "J". Print date of your manual? mine is oct. 2007
I do not see a print date, but it says June 2008 after the forward. As far as the model I thought the number after the J stood for the model year.

congrats on the bike, awesome to see that bikes r trickling out down in SoFlo finally. i'm in plantation and i searched all of broward, miami, west palm forever until i gave up on the dealerships and went private. found one in tampa now i'm riding my ninjette all of fort laud. ouch to 4800 but that's actually a really good price since all dealers r trying to get over 5k, esp since down in so flo they bump it up even more b/c we can ride year round. i'll be sure to give u a wave if i see a red ninjette around

Production date of June 2008, that is funny. Now these pre-release 09's are nothing more than the 08's that were supposed to be for some of us who had deposits ;) Kawi and dealers both just wanted to cash in. 4,800 dam. I don't see any used 08's prices going down anytime soon. Congrats on the bike though. Now if you get an exhaust and jet kit that should put you around 5,300 for a 250, good god.

Gratz on the new toy!

Nice to see some more people on here from the S Florida region. I still have yet to see another 250 in person aside from mine down here. For as fast as they sell, I figured I would have seen one cruising around by now, but no dice.

You can check the build date of basically any bike or car that was delivered early in the model year and that build date will be in the previous year.


It's not like this is specific to Kawasaki or the 250.

hit the nail on the head on this one . . its not even 2009 yet, when do people expect them to be built :p

I'm a little further south on Griffin in the Hard Rock Casino area. I don't ride nearly as much as I would like unfortunately, but I have a green 250:)
