Hi all, Iâ€™m new here and this is my first post. I recently got my leanerâ€™s permit (after years of off road riding) and am keen to purchase a bike for weekend road fun and the occasional commute etc. I've always like the look of the sports bike to that of cruisers and dirt bikes. So my first thought was CBR250. But a friend of mine has an Aprilla RS250 RR and a Kawasaki ZXr250 which haven't been ridden in over 3 years and are just sitting in a garage (scared off bikes following an accident). I could buy either of these bikes at a very cheap price would probably get the RS250 for less than 4.5K (under 30,000km) and the ZXR250 for even less. The thing that puts me off these bikes is with the new learner power to weight ratio laws, both of these bikes are black listed and therefore learners licensed after june/july will not be able to legally ride these bikes. This concerns me because when the time comes to upgrade my 250 (which im sure will happen) Iâ€™m scared I might find myself with a bike that no one wants, because learners can't ride it and people who can will be more interested in 400cc or 600cc etc. bikes. Currently the going price for an RS250 seems to be around 6K-8K anyone got any ideas on what they think will happen to these prices when the new laws are brought in? Iâ€™m thinking the price for these bikes will drop a heap as the demand for them (in vic and nsw) will all but disappear. Another quick one if you had to chose between an RS250RR, ZXr250 or CBR250RR what would you choose and why. Or if you could recommend a similar style bike. Do many fully licensed riders ride RS250's? Cheers look forward to your replyâ€™s.
