how bout selling a 500 lol

Thanx
Learn on the 250 and you'll outride the guys on the 600 that think bigger is always better. If I had the money I would buy it as a second bike for fun.

I'm just not sure if I'd buy a new bike since you loose money the minute you roll it out the shop.

NO.... dont do it...... recosider........ My first bike was a 600 and it was perfect. I learned how to ride on my friends 250 rode it about 20 - 25 times. I learned to respect my 600 the frst time I gripped the throttle. But I am glad that I got me a 600. When I get on my friend 250 now it does not even feel right. I cant imagine having to ride that bike everyday. Thats just my 2 pennies!!!

The resell on the 250 is great. If you outgrow it, you can always take a very minimal loss. Get used to the 250, then move up. A totalled 600 isn't worth much.

+1 on 250 resell value. There is a good market for them.

Personally I am glad I didn't start with a 250, it would have gotten really boring for me. After a few months of the 6 I got on a 250 and was like wow, this thing is fooking slow as .

its better to ride an slow bike fast than a fast bike slow
get the 250, it makes you a better rider, when you move on to a bigger bike, 250 still makes a great daily day bike.
9 month ago i bought a sv650 as my first bike and people told me the same thing ( get 600 blah blah) , well after full gixxer front end, rear wheel and shock upgrade and riding the heck off it on the track (thanks to texas track days), im still not done with it !!! and I am glad i made that choice.
250 is a great bike... if it has to have more kick go with sv650 or ninja 650.

hope this helps

Ya I just (as of today) got a ZX6R, and everyone I've told wants to know what I'm going with the 250. I am keeping it (it's my BABY, and it's a great grocery-getter and ****-around-on bike) but EVERYONE wants to buy the 250 from me.
Even if you do outgrow the baby Ninja, there will be a solid demand for it when you decide to sell it. Believe me!

OK. I'm done on this thread. Did I mention that I got a new 2008 ZX6R today!?? It's a nice step up from the Ninjette.
