Over my thousand or so miles on the new Ninja, I could have stood for a stiffer seat and a little more legroom, and I wish it was geared a little bit taller. Dropping a few teeth on the rear sprocket would likely net you more mileage out of the 5-gallon tank (I averaged about 180 miles) and would also make the ride a little smoother. As it stands the bike vibrates a fair amount, even with its weighted footpegs. Still, it’s a really nicely refined motorcycle that deserves more credit than it gets. From the features that it’s always had, like the remote preload dial to stiffen the shock without tools, to the updated kit like slightly wider mirrors and state-of-the-art electronics, this is a seriously capable machine. I lived off of the Ninja 1000 for a few days, and could have easily kept going. 2,000, 3,000, or 10,000 miles would have been no sweat for the 2016 version of this bike, and 2017 is even better.
