check out the sv650s, ninja 650r, ninja 500, gs500f, they are all great starter bikes as well.

Awesome cycles for your msf FTW! They are a sponsor on here.

Welcome!

Take your MSF first, get some good gear (helmet, jacket, gloves and boots), and then buy your bike.

FYI- 250's don't lose value really, buy a used one, get used to riding a motorcycle, and then when you're ready to move up, sell it for what you bought it for!
