Alright guys. With the dollar being as it is and after reading the import export thread I'm seriously thinking about heading to Washington to get a bike for my GF. She's not very big so the ZZR250 is even too big. I'm thinking a 250 Ninja but I want to know how a canadian spec bike compares to the US version. I've heard they are different but can't find where I read what the differences are and why one bike may be more than the other as far as price. What are the performance differences and what's the best bike to buy for a new rider that has height and weight limitations as to what she can ride? Meaning she's short(5-4), small(120lbs) and not super strong. Is there a reason they seem to be half the price down there? I have a friend that lives there so I could take a weekend and go bike shopping but would I really be getting a good deal? Will I be getting an inferior bike by buying the American version? Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks.
