Im looking at buying my first bike and I have been doing alot of thinking about what I want. I was looking at Spadas although I'm pretty set on getting a VTR250. I went and looked at one in a showroom today. It was about $9000 including on-road costs (rego, ins. etc.). I was wondering what thoughts people had about have one as a first bike. I've done alot of research on them and have seen anyone say they're crap, far from it. How good a bike is this for a starter? How good is it on petrol? How do they sound? (I love the sound of all V-twins ) How good a resale value will they have?
