pending that the 250 pricing stays within its current trends....you would buy a new one lets say $3850 after taxes and fees, ride it for a year-ish, put 4-8k miles on it....and resell it for maybe $3000 depending on condition.

ive seen 01-02 ninja 250s sell for $2500 with a bunch of miles on it.

there's always a huge demand for beginner bikes...and with the new styling....that demand just went up.

Should be hitting the shops anytime now. New model years usually starts shipping around Sept...

Call a couple of the local Kawi dealers and ask. A couple years back you had to put a deposit if you wanted one, they sold that fast.

I like the brakes they seem good enough for a ~100mph 300# bike and they are very predictable.

i know on mine its a to start it... and you have to let it get up to temp otherwise before you ride otherwise its going to die, where as a FI bike will be pretty much ready to go the moment you start it
