Max's Ninja

Postby darkjak » Sat 4. Aug 2007, 20:35

In an episode in S1 Max mentions that her bike is a "Kawasaki Ninga 650, black like her mood".
When DA was recorded in 2000 and 2001, the Kawasaki Ninja 650 however wasn't out yet.
So the question is, what bike did they use in the show?

Here's a comparsion between the two.

What is the make and model of Max's Bike?
Max' motorcycle is a Ninja 450 imported from Taiwan with dual shocks and single disc brakes on the front and back. The bike has also had some minor body modifications to make it look like a 250 like the tail end has been extended 3 inches and the tail lights have been changed. Max's bike also looks like the newer model Ninja 600EX made by Kawasaki. Jessica Alba in an interview claims she rides a 350 model.

Just thought it would be fun to tell everyone.

That's something I've allready stated. However, In the DA universe, the bike she drives is CALLED a 650. In real life it's a 450 with some modifications to make it look like a 250... or something.

I guess they did it becuase the show took place in the future, and they didn't want Max to have a bike that's model was 20 years old. So they used a name of a model not out yet....

That may have not made sense, but it did sort of in my head, LMAO sry.

Hmm iam not a expert but i think it has maybe to do with the power of the engine. Maybe someone know it exact ^^

Oh and i found a good article about Max's bike on this site.


"Max´s bike is a Kawasaki ZZR-250. Look at the bodywork, the rear turning lights and the shape of the headlight.
What they did to Max´s bike for the show was to remove the ZZR and 250 logos on the bike and called it a "Ninja".
The ZZR series isn't referred to as Ninja only the 250cc models and since Max´s bike is supposed to be a 650cc, however -
There is no 650cc engine for the ZZR. The reason to they refer to it as an 650 in the series is simply just cos they want Max to be a bad-ass chick.
Truth is Jessica Alba couldn’t handle the power of a 600cc bike, said so herself.
Probably to heavy for her to, so they used a 250 and referred to it as a 650 in the show.
I also heard rumours that its custom built, that they changed the exhaust and the engine.
Wouldn't be suprised, as the orignal cans look naff and the exahust probably have given up, mine did (Kawasaki's run hot).
Other details which give away the true identity - rear light shape, smaller discs, small tank, pressed/boxed alluminium frame.
This type of frame is too weak for a 195Kg bike, note the difference between shiny bar and mono-cue frame (engine as stressed member)."
