250s seem to hold value pretty well. I sold my 08 for 2700, if I had waited another week I coulda got more too

They are a blast. I even taught my gf to ride it and she is tiny. Had no problems

Re: Opinion on a Ninja 250r

Loved racing mine this entire year....probably taught me more than the R6 every did lol. Nothing more fun than going full pinned on the entire track lol. If you do track it....get the bridgestone slicks the moto3 one I believe. 90 front and a 120 rear. It dips in so quick....make the R6 feel like riding a tank.

Re: Opinion on a Ninja 250r

^Agreed.. it's crazy how light they are. Makes me really wonder what it must be like to ride the 125cc two-smoke track bikes.

The Ninja 250s give you that great riding position that's both comfortable and sporty/fun. You're significantly more upright on the bike than you are on your R6, and the bars are significantly higher as well. It's just so much fun on the street and feels so safe at the same time. I'd say go for it.

Ninja 250 is a great bike but it is not good for new riders.
