a ninja 300 would be an AWESOME track bike. holy shit, i would LOVE to track one of them. i've been slowly "downgrading" my bikes and i think my next purchase would be a small one like that or the sv650.

trust me when i tell you that passing bigger, faster bikes on the track NEVER gets old. never. totally 100% jealous of you right now. dammit!

only on the straight. you would learn quickly how to CRUSH people in the corners. just the thought of one set of tires for a whole season of track days is giving me a chubby...

Re: Ninja 300 as a track bike?

So HotBodies just released their track bodywork for the Ninja 300, so I took the picture and came up with an initial design of how I'd possibly paint the track fairings:



Whatcha guys think? I just threw the number on there for S&G's. Of course the green would be Kawi Green, the black would be Ebony black.

Re: Ninja 300 as a track bike?

Pick it up tomorrow! Let the mods begin lol

Came up with another color scheme, think I may go with HotBodies Color Form so I don't have to paint the entire thing.

What'd you get that sucker for OTD? Plan is to pick one up for the girlfriend to learn to ride on, but we'll probably wait until they start showing up used.
