If it is to small, the TU250, or V-Star 250 are also good bikes, but again, if you have a flat out on the road on one, you've pretty much lost your shot at the SS1000. I have done 2 SS1000s, both on a Vulcan 750, which has shaft drive, tubeless tires, and a centerstand.
Have you actually ridden a Ninja 250, at least the older model? Much more of a standard bike riding position. I commuted 320 miles a day on one for a while, the biggest issue was the soft saddle.

Personally, I detest the standard cruiser riding position. Apart from being hard on the back on bumpy roads, it prevents riders from learning to use their bodies and legs to cushion bumps and take corners better.

On principle, I would never put a new rider on a cruiser.

The connection is that Lance is the US Distributer for SYM. Through their Alliance division. Even before they were the SYM Distributer the Cali Classic was a re-badged SYM.

Not trying to hijack this thread but regarding the EX250 Ninja. I'm 50 and rode one for a few years. It's a blast at 70 MPG and it would do 100mph. Regarding the seating position, I've had back surgery and I was ok. I did get some riser from Motorcycle Larry I think and put on . It was a very fun bike. It's light too. I would buy another in a heartbeat....if I had room! Go over to the 250 forum and check it out. https://www.ninja250.org/

Can we call this bike the <250cc class or tiddler rather than "entry level"? I''ve been riding for about 54 years and the bike appeals to my nostalgic nature. Had big bikes; still do; but the hp lust is long gone.

Nice...Anyone weigh the Wolf? Is it really 260 pounds? Really that heavy for a 125.
