Hey guys, I'm just on my learners and I'm looking for a bike. I haven't done Q Ride (QLD motorcycle license course) yet... but when going in to talk to some dealerships they said they would package it with the bike, so I'm wondering if its worthwhile to buy the bike before I learn to ride properly... but anyway... It has to be a 250 as I am in QLD. I'm tossing up whether to buy a bike new or used. New seems attractive but is expensive, and it sounds like I might be able to get a faster bike used. These are what I am considering so far: New Kawasaki Ninja 250R (looks awesome, is apparently pretty fast for a 250) Honda CBR250 (cheapish and new) Used Early 90s Honda CBR250RR (apparently really fast, I've been told get a pre-94 one for speed) Honda VTR250 (newer but only 5 gears) Yamaha FZR250 (old, fast, cheap) 90's Kawasaki ZX-2R I'm leaning more towards the secondhand CBR250RR or FZR250, mainly around cost and the good performance I've heard about. Buying new, I'd lean towards the Ninja, but it is pretty exxy at around $7500 on road. What do you guys reckon? New or used, which bikes are good?
