Gday all, well after my search for the Across fell through (damn people buying it before me!) I stumbled across an ad for a ZZR250. 2000 Kawasaki ZZR250, 25,500kms, luggage rack included, service history, manual and mechanics manual included. All for $4000. The one catch (will inspect later today hopefully) is that it has drop damage on both sides (on the front fairing, under the indicators). I have seen photos of the bike and this seems to be the only damage, and as far as I can tell it does indeed look like drop damage not crash damage. Up until now I was looking at spending about $3500 on a bike. However that $3500 was looking to get me a bike that was a bit older than this one, with 40,000 - 50,000KMs on it. Do you consider the extra $500 to be justified? I am not concerned about the drop damage, provided it is only cosmetic damage. Also I have heard the ZZR250 is suited to highway riding, this is important since I would be travelling down to Canberra (from Sydney) and back.
