Either Michelin Pilot Roads or Dunlop Roadsmarts are good choices. I've run both on Ninjas and prefer Roadsmarts but they're very close in performance and a lot better than OEM. Like bmac said, they're great all around street tires. Not the grippiest but very consistent grip. They both work well in the wet if that's a concern. Long mileage is another benefit. The Pilot Road series is up to 5 now and the latest Roadsmart series is at 4.
I'd also vouch for getting a 190/55 profile rear tire. We've had some spirited discussions on this forum you can read but for me the /55 profile was a very nice improvement in Ninjas cornering performance. It makes the bike completely neutral in a corner, no longer pushing on a bar to hold a line.
