Opinion on a Ninja 250r

Looking for your opinions on this 2011 Ninja. The miles are high for only having it a year, but I feel it is nothing to be concerned about. I have asked how many miles on the Pirellis, what maintenance was done at 12k, when did he buy if for warranty, and he says firm on price because he has reduced it once already. KBB says 2400 for trade in and 3400 for retail. What do you guys think? Any other questions? Thank you for your help!

I have a Kawasaki Ninja 250 for sale. It's the 2011 model in special edition white. There are 14,000 miles on the bike because it has been ridden almost everyday. A perfect first bike for any rider who wants to get started! I have kept this bike in nearly perfect condition. Never laid down, and it doesn't have any scratches bigger than a nickel. All maintenance has been done regularly. Warranty is still active. Email me with questions. If the ad is still up, I still have the bike. Start getting 60 MPG today!

Custom features on this bike include:
- Pirelli Diablo Rosso II dual compound track tires (The best tires out there for street riders who like to have fun on their bikes) - http://www.pirelli.com/tyre/ww/en/mo...o_rosso_2.html
- Corbin Memory Foam leather seat - http://www.corbin.com/kawasaki/kn250r8f.shtml
- Super bright integrated LED Taillight (Brake light strobes 6 times before staying lit when you press the brakes, it really gets peoples attention) - http://www.amazon.com/2008-2012-Kawa..._sim_sbs_auto_
- Pro Grip Tank Pad - http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...-Tank-Pad.aspx
- RAM motorcycle mount base (Capable of holding GPS units, iphones, etc) - http://www.rammount.com/CatalogResul...5/Default.aspx

Here is a video of the tail light:

Re: Opinion on a Ninja 250r

I think that's a fair price. I rode a CBR 250R and had a BLAST so the Ninja 250R should be similar fun-wise They're great track toys as well.

It is for the woman (she is paying ). That is what I felt, but I talked to my brother and he made me second guess myself. He is an ass.

Re: Opinion on a Ninja 250r

DO IT!!!! I rode my friend's 09 a few times and had so much fun on the thing.

The only negative I can think of would be resale. Because it has higher miles you will have fewer people interested. That is if you think she will only keep it a short time.

Re: Opinion on a Ninja 250r

I think I'll make her keep it so I can track it. Thank you for your opinions everyone.

Re: Opinion on a Ninja 250r

Price seems about right, especially if it was as well taken care of as claimed.

My first bike was an 08 ninja 250 that had 27k on it and had been laid down at least twice. I got it on the cheap and put 9k miles on it and it never gave me a single problem. Great bike.

I also don't think you should worry about this. 250s are in high demand and the resale market seems huge. I fixed up some of the crash damage on mine for very little money and I sold it for $600 more than I got it for, even though it had almost 36k miles lmao
