I'm no Rossi, but my skills are most definitely not "lacking"

The only Ninjas I've ridden were that 250, a 636, and a Zx10r. The 636 was a friend's bike, and it felt horrible to me. Turns out his front tire was low by about 9lbs of air, so that really threw it off. He sold it shortly after I rode it and picked up the zx10r. Now that bike is fun! I don't really have anything to compare to the Sv650 because it was the first bike I'd ever ridden, and all I knew was that it had two wheels and was a lot quicker than my car
