As fall approaches with winter following closely after, much of the country will find itself under mountains of cold and snow. Families in the great northern cities prepare for a long hibernation, a long season of “sleep” where the former waking world of outdoor activity and recreation will take a back seat to the search for warmth and indoor comfort. Not so in Phoenix, Arizona.
Much of the Phoenix Valley area is made up of transplants from colder environs, and not just snow birds, but young people, entrepreneurs and young professionals in search of a land of eternal summer, a haven for those who need to be outside enjoying the fresh air and rugged natural southwestern beauty. They have found this shangri-la in Phoenix, Arizona. From this writer’s perspective, there is no better way to embrace the good fortune of living in this warm valley than on the back of a 2011 Kawasaki Ninja 250r, a shockingly affordable and stylish road rocket from which to base any solo adventure.
A fun yet easy ride, with a mix of cruiser and sport style of ergonomics and handling, the Kawasaki Ninja 250r is considered the optimal in an entry level sport bike. With a fuel efficiency of anywhere between 50 mpg and 70 mpg(depending on how you drive), and a starting price of $3,900, the bike is the perfect primary vehicle for the adventurous bachelor or bachelorette, or the perfect form of secondary transportation for the commited weekend warrior.
Phoenix Valley auto enthusiasts can view and test drive any current production model Kawasaki at any Phoenix Valley Kawasaki dealer. Phoenix Valley auto enthusiasts should plan on attending the Phoenix Arizona International Auto Show to learn about the most recent concepts and innovations from Kawasaki and the rest of the auto industry, taking place at the Phoenix Arizona Convention center over Thanksgiving weekend.
