Maybe throw the CBR250 in this list. (If you still maintain this list.)

Hello fellow riders. Looking at a local Ninja 500 for sale. Good deal?

2009 Kawasaki Ninja 500 ONLY 37 miles... pearl blue.

Only 37 miles. 2009 Kawasaki Ninja 500R. Bike was reposessed from the dealers customer having missed their payments by the bank and I bought this to resell. Normal title. Bike is very easy to ride. Fresh service recently this month. Normal title in hand ready for you to sign as new buyer. Normal daily expected 55-64 mpg gas mileage. Very comfortable sitting position.

$2850.oo. No trades.







KBB has the 2009 Ninja 500 listed at $3585. So this guy asking 'only' $2850 sounds like a fair deal? Or is the fact that he bought it as a reposession too shady?

Maybe, but with 37 miles on it, I would say that is a pretty good deal. If you get it, make sure to follow the break-in schedule!

Hyosung is a popular newcomer in the motorcycle world. Plagued with production issues at first, they have been able to iron over most problems to produce a reliable, cheap alternative to the Japanese manufacturers. Three options are available; the naked GT650, the half-faired GT650S, and the fully faired GT650R (in picture).

Your profile says you don't even have a bike... And not that that is super relevant because really just because you started on a liter doesn't mean it was or is a good idea. And I would bet money I know riders who are newer who can out ride you on their 250s.

I work hard and I play hard.

I'm just like everyone else... only different... and if you don't like it- you can suck it.

So I've heard from all the bike guys in my area that the ninja 250 is going to be a good fit height wise but it's not going to be fast enough to get out of it's own way if the situation requires quick reaction. From what I've read on this thread most of you seem to feel differently so I'd like to know why.

On another note, I've got my bike license and I'm trying to figure out what bike to get for a starter. I'm about where Wickedskulls is in terms of bike height. I want something sporty yet low enough that I've got the balance I'd like. I've been looking at the sv650sf. I've heard nothing but good about it from the riders I know and even the instructor from my bike course. I really like the style and I'm wondering if maybe there's something a little shorter with the same look and handling as the sv?
