Hi NR, Buying a V-star 250cc for my first bike just until I settle in to riding (trade up at the end of the year for bigger engine). Can someone please help me with a quick comparison between two bikes and value for $. Which way would you go in my case? Bike 1 - Private sale; 2006 Model, 23,000K's, Plenty of work completed on the bike recently (new chain, tyres, sprockets etc.), Rego. Got it locked in at $4500 I test rode the above bike today and felt very happy with the whole deal...almost 100% on handing over the hard earned until I also saw this next advertisement on ebay Bike 2 - Dealership; 2009 Model, 2000K's!, No-rego for $5100 Resale is important since I will be selling of in near future rather than years down the track. In this case should I be forking out the extra couple shells for the '09 or is it much a much? Is there any other significant consideration not being made? i.e. Is there any major differences/developments/evolutions between these models that would make me want to go for the newer or older specifically? Cheers for any help NR's. Nick.
