Hey everyone! I'm about the buy my first road bike and I'm trying to decide between a 1998 Kawasaki GPX 250 Price: $2500 Kilometres: 33,890 Decription: I HAVE FOR AUCTION A 1998 KAWASAKI GPX 250.

EVERYTHING WORKS PERFECTLY. IT HAS GENUINE KAWASAKI OVERSEAS REAR COMBINATION LAMP WITH CLEAR LENSES GIVES IT THE SUPERBIKE LOOK WITHOUT THE COST ALONG WITH SLIMLINE FRONT INDICATORS AS PICTURED. I HAVE ALSO FITTED A PHILLIPS BLUE VISION FRONT HEADLIGHT GLOBE WHICH GIVES YOU MUCH BRIGHTER WHITE LIGHT THAN THE STANDARD GLOBE.

SPARES TO GO WITH THE BIKE -GENUINE KAWASAKI REAR TAILLIGHT (AUS MODEL) -SPARE GEAR SELECTOR LEVER -GENUINE KAWASAKI REAR TAILLIGHT LENSES -BRAKE DISC LOCK -TWO KEYS -SERVICE BOOK AND OWNERS MANUAL -FULL TANK OF MOBIL PREMIUM UNLEADED FUEL and a 1991 Yamaha FZR 250 3LN3 EXUP Price: $2500 Kilometres: 15,000 Decription: It runs really well and handles very good, the engine is in A1 condition with low k's ( thanks to previous owner not riding it much). Has original Plastic fairings ( no fibreglass) and pretty much all original parts. Bike was bought from a family friend and so I can guarantee that its had a clean history. I've had the bike for approx 6 months now and is currently unregistered and have never had it registered while in my ownership. I have it going around the block a couple times a week so it keeps it running smooth. Recently had all fluids changed including Fork oil & seals, Engine oil & filter, Coolant and brake fluids. Has had a new chain and sprockets put on aswell. ~~~ The bike is gonna be used mostly for city driving with the very odd highway trip here and there. I'm leaning towards the GPX at the moment only because I'm thinking of fuel consumption but I'm starting to build the picture in my head that although the GPX is a highly recommended 250 by many, the FZR is around the same price and may (I'm unsure - something about the EXUP?) is kind of like performance though and though which could be a much better by than the GPX taking into consideration the low ks?? Your thoughts are much appreciated and advice from people in the know will have a great influence over my decision. Thanks to anyone who reads and replys!!!
