For the 06 you're going to be looking at probably at LEAST $2500. Probably more like $2700.

For the 03, I wouldn't pay anything more than about $1800 for it...but that's just me. Dropped bikes with 12,000 miles on them and "some scratches" aren't worth that much.

For what it's worth, I got my 02 after it had FELL OVER in a garage...it was completely repainted though, so it looks good as new. It has about 8,000 miles on it, and I got it for $1400. I think I got it for a steal though. I'm fairly certain I could sell it for at least $1800 if I wanted to...but I'm keeping the little fucker.

You can find deals out there. There are some that are going for 2000. And that is almost new with a few thousand miles on them.

dont count on it. if you could make a ton of money without doing any work, would you put in the effort?

until they have serious competition, hyosung isn't, they wont have to do a thing.

I can live with the styling, the only thing that bugs me the most is the old school square headlight. I wish there was a way to make a front end look sleeker.

but since most people use it for a season to learn anyways, its not a big deal. I can deal with looking like a dork for a few thousand miles, then upgrade to a nicer bike, but the experience you'll have will save your skin.

my 06 yellow 250 with 1200 miles on it cost me $2,100 bucks. said it wasn't down but theres a scratch on the right bar end. no biggie.
then another guy wanted to sell me his 06 silver 250 which had 4,700 miles on it for $2,800. so needles to say i went with the yellow 250.

and about the square head light...kinda wish i could change that up.

how about a green one like new condition, never down, no scratch, year 2002 8000 miles and put on non operate for $1700? is that a heck of a good deal? if i put another couple thousand miles on it and drive it half year, can i still sell it for that amount?

no, it just that it didn't register, they put it on non operate so they don't have to pay for the fees.

The 06 is gonna be worth around $2.1-3K depending on how well it is kept up. The 03' is less than $1500.

Kyoko (my ninjette):

I am over 6'2", 300lbs, with a size 14 foot. Don't let anyone tell you that the 250R is too small of a bike. If I can ride my Kyoko for intown and highway riding, you'll do just fine.

Value is based on demand. There is a high demand here and few new ones out there so I had people willing to pay the price of a new one when I sold one of mine.
