I'm almost certainly going to get a Hyosung GT250R. I was inclined towards getting a Ninja for a very long time, however I'm 6'3 and 92kgs so I think I may be a bit too big for it. It felt 'okay' when I sat on the Ninja, but I could imagine getting cramped changing gears etc. The Hyo is big enough for me and has the added benefit of fuel injection which will be handy for me as I plan on eventually commuting on this bike in the cold mornings. My question now is where to buy my bike from. My original limit WAS 5500, but I'm not strapped for cash so I can spend another 600-700 if you guys think it would be worth it. Brand new 2011 model (with 24 months warranty) for $6200. Private sale 2010 model with ~1700kms for $5500. Dealer used 2010 model with ~16,000kms for $4800. I've done a lot of research on the reliability of Hyosungs and it seems to me that most people with Hyos are very happy with them and there is a lot more reliability from 2008 onwards. However just to be safe I wanted the peace of mind of warranty. Both used bikes already have IXIL aftermarket exhausts on them. If I buy a new one I'd probably go down the path of an aftermarket exhaust sooner or later which will be more $$$. I know that if I go down this path, I will likely lose more money on resale, but I think it will be much easier to sell. I'm a bit worried about the dealer used model because it's not often you see a dealer selling for cheaper then private sales? I'm worried there is something wrong with it. However it does come with the 3 months statutory warranty. Will this be sufficient to rule out any problems? I'm also worried that the already higher amount of kms will make it difficult when it comes to resale in a year or so. I live about 2 hours away from the private bikes I've found listed, so if there is a warranty problem, do I have to take it back to where he bought it from, or will any Hyo dealer claim it under warranty for me? I feel like I shouldn't be paying $5500 for an almost 2 year old bike (even though it has low kms) when I can buy a brand new one for $6200. But my original spending limit WAS $5500. And I didn't really wanna buy a new bike since I'd probably be selling it for a restricted 650 in a year (if I stick to motorbikes). Sorry for the long post but it has been playing with my head for a long time now. I'd love any advice! Please let me know what you guys think is best for my situation.
