I have already seen used ones in the paper and on craigslist around here (western Ma), so I do think there will be a used market. I think some people are just looking to trade up once they learn how to ride. I bought one myself and as of now I plan to keep it for at least a few years, it gets me around and is fun to ride. I’m not really a big power freak, so having a bike that tops out around 90-100 mph is fast enough for me. I tend to think that people may hold on to them a little longer just because of the way gas is now, once you get into the 600cc and above sport bikes your really not using a whole lot less than a small car when it comes to gas, but 250s are great, I have ready anywhere from 50-70mpg depending on riding habits.
