Hi there, I am about to buy a VTR 250 (as soon as i can find one), i prefer to buy froma shop to get ALL riding gear bundled up in th cost. Before i buy one, i have some questions, and have been getting various answers in store. SHould i consider other bikes, eg FZX250 ? How powerfull are they? Eg how quick would they do a 1/4 mile? Do they beat HSV etc? As far as off the line speed, qhat car would say they are closest compared to? Seems the current model has a couple more features than 2003 and usually for only 1 or 2k more - can anyone commment on a feature comparision between 2003/2005 ? I can see slightly different bars and a tacho - is that it? Aside from the obvious muffler mod, what else recommended for one of these? OH and its gotta be matt black!
