  1. Hi everyone,

    Just a noob from Sydney, and thinking of getting the new ninja 300.
    Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated! I would love to know any recommended bike shops around parramatta area and cheapest place to get them, feel free to pm me.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. G'day jz,

    Post a bit about why you want a bike so we can help you more.
  3. I always want to get a bike for weekend rides, maybe a bit short trips around town.
  4. but....are you hot? we need to know that too....standard question.

    any particular reason you want the new 300?
    are you looking at getting a bike with a loan or buy outright?
    whats your budget?
    have you included gear in this budget?
  5. I like the ninja 300, my budget would be around $8500 includes all gears (helmet, jacket, kelv jeans, gloves + boots). I'll be getting it outright.

    EDITED: I'm still on my Ls, so if i gonna spend 5-6k on a second hand ninja 250R, might as well get a new one + warranty and no need to deal with used bike dramas
  6. If you are shopping in the 250-300 engine sizes I would get a new Ninja 300 with ABS, future resale will be assured. Looks like a future learner classic.

    I bought a new Versys 650 from Bikebiz on Parramata Rd, Parramatta, they have been excellent to date and were price competitive when I bought the bike.
