Okay, I've read reviews and threads on this bike and this isn't a simple "Should I buy it?" thread. Thing is, I'm in the process of selling my R1 and I have a little fzr250 which I will sell soon too. Naturally the ensuing void in my life will need to be filled with lots of drugs and indiscriminate sexual encounters ...oh and another bike! I like fully faired bikes and I like 250s. They're small, nimble, easy to manouvre, fun and zippy enough for road riding - ultimately because they allow full use (almost) of their power and capabilities. Oh and they're cheap as chips to register. I was hoping for some input from you esteemed NR folks about my temptation to buy a Ninja 250r. We've all read reviews for them, they're a decent bike, especially considering all the other 250s available on the market are either >15 years old or a pile of krap (hyosung). My main considerations in buying the ninja would be: 1) Resale value in around a year or so 2) Release of any other 250cc (suzuki/yamaha) in the next year or so 3) Availability of any other option (reliable 250s) these days ...or should I just stick to getting another 600/1000? Any input from you lads and lasses would be muchly appreciated. Its either this now, or a 600/1000 in approximately six months - I won't be bikeless as I'll have the fzr250 for that duration.
