Power Wheelie a possibility.        

Yes, it's unseemingly possible to do a wheelie on a Ninja 250 as I've accidentally pulled one off while exiting a sharp left on a severe incline (country road) and stalled..as I felt the lull in the engine, I deemed it appropriate to "twist" the throttle more than usual and ended up lifting the front tire - I slid, literally slid off the seat almost elegantly and while both of my feet planted on solid ground, I watched in mock horror as my brand new-off-the-showroom- bike ride off without me only to teeter slightly left, then right and then straight into a watery ditch.

One witness who saw this most unfortunate incident told me that he presumed this was intentional and thought nothing more of it. Needless to say, I was mortified and equally satisfied that the only thing that emerged from the whole scenario was a few scratches on the left fairing paired with a bruised ego.
