Used ninja 250?
May 30, 2008 at 3:53 am #1436AnonymousGuest
I’m thinking about about getting a motorcycle. After doing some research I decided to get a Ninja 250. Well, now I’m trying to decide if I want to get one new or used. Used would definately be more economical for me.
There is someone selling a used 250 close by. It’s a 1994 and supposedly runs well. He wants 1200 for it, but that kind of seems high for a bike that old. Is it a bad idea to buy a 14 year old bike to begin with? Should I try to get something in the 2000+ range? I don’t know how many miles are on it, but I assume there are quite alot and he says it’s been laid down once.
Thanks for any advice!May 30, 2008 at 4:21 am #6810ShannonGParticipant
A friend of mine who is very mechanical said you shouldn’t really be looking at a bike if it has more than 15,000 miles on it. Other than that, I can’t really hellp you. Good luck!May 30, 2008 at 10:44 pm #6826megaspazParticipant
The only real reason, I can think of going used over new, besides price, is if you don’t want to feel that bad if you lay it down… Other than that if you can take a friend or a pro with you to check out the bike, do so.
If there’s anything more important than my ego
around, I want it caught and shot now…June 2, 2008 at 4:44 am #6895AzN LogiKParticipant
It’s also much easier to find a used one. Where I am, there are no new ninja 250s at any of the dealers, u gotta waitlist for months and pay an extra $700 premium just to get one.June 5, 2008 at 11:21 am #7044smadaakramParticipant
have a friend that knows about bikes go with u and look it over, as for the price thats actually a good deal atleast from what i’ve seen
