He priced it low for lowballers...

It is just too funny to me how people who buy brand new bikes (especially 250's) try for max return.
(or try selling to the exact opposite market of people who typically dont buy new for that very reason)
Sellers have to understand that they are learning bikes & primarily tools.
You cannot derive more than $500-1500 (much less 2 or 3 thousand) dollars worth of utility from a 250cc bike and that under current effects will never go higher only lower.

The 250 will get close to his $3k asking price if his bike hasn't been dropped. The rebel, not so much, there's not a market for it.

I saw an add for a 2012 cbr250 the other day, the guy was asking $100 more than Lunsford Honda is at the moment....he said he had paid several hundred more than that for it, he was including tax and license in what he paid... the problem is when you go to get the bike into your name, you are going to have to pay that too... so a new one would be cheaper.

True but theres yet another body style coming out. I mean i almost sold my (03)ninja 250 for more than i paid for it but trying to sell to a market of people who know that buying used is cheaper than buying new (and why) its kind of insulting to the buyer

edit: and i agree he'd prob get all of what he's asking for the ninja, the rebel is actually the bike that i made the post for.

Market prices should be set by the market. Low ballers gonna low ball.. and profit maximizers gonna profit maximize.

Just remember, cash only come with cash

Incorrect logic. EX250's with 5k miles go for $3k all day long. $2600 is probably the average price paid by those who shop it hard. $2200 buys you a dropped on one or both sides bike. I got mine for $750 on CL with damage from a deer. Best motorcycle value ever in my opinion.

I, for one, extracted probably $5000 worth of value / utility racing my EX250 at Cresson a few months ago. Why $5000? Dunno, feels about right compared to the joy I get from other relatively expensive things like cars, weddings, taxes, electricity bills, booze, weed, , electronic toys, dirt bikes, track bikes, etc... . OK,, never mind, reconsidering......definitely scratch from the list, I don't pay my wife for that, well at least not directly, but ya, probably $5k a month of paychecks barely keeps her around the house, lol. I digress...

For utility, the cost savings of riding a small bike are higher than those of a big supersport. MPG better, less taxes, and don't even mention the utility of being alive from riding slower and avoiding PP1 out of the shame for being 750cc down on power.

Unless you've tried a small bike, don't knock it.
