Sold my 78 bronco, saved a lil cash and bought a 2007 ninja 250 4000 miles, all paperwork, 4000 miles, bought it from my co-worker's son-in-law who took super good care of it. I bugged him about it for a while and he finally decided to let it go for 2100$. I really want to rip off those horrible silver flame stickers and do a fender eliminator, and eventually throw an exhaust on it...All in time. 14$ a month for insurence and 60+ mpg...I love it!





and yes...I know it's just a 250.

ps- the red car is getting a tranny installed in my garage. I just have to put it back together.

even a used 08 with higher milage (20k) would have been at the cheapest 3000+ and they are usually pretty beat up. As much as I wanted the 'cool' new style....This one is better mechanically than any other one I saw for sale, I know the history of all 4000 miles, and 07 vs 08 isn't a big enough difference for me to spend twice as much. I thought about financing a new one, but I'd rather drop a 2k bike than a 5k bike. Plus I don't have to carry full coverage.

looks like fun. i really want a bike, but the biking season up here is so short and our roads suck balls. i wouldn't be able to get all that much riding out of it.

no prob...
14$ a month....titan insurance broker, McGraw is the actual company.
23 year old- driving for 7 years, no bike experience, only have a permit. bike is owned by me, so just basic coverage, un-insured motorist etc, not full coverage. The bike was only 2100, full coverage is more expensive since I don't have experience.. I'd end up paying enough in a year to buy another damn 250!

milage was right at 70 mpg when I filled up the other day!

8) I wasn't expecting that the first time.

wow 14 a month thats nothing. Is cali's insurance expensive? Im pretty sure NJ has the highest insurance costs in the country. buddy of mine bought an 08 gsxr 600 brand new last year and with full coverage he was payin i think around 1400 a year.
he since dropped it, insurance totaled it out, he bought it back for like a grand with a salvage title, and fixed it, he made like 2g off the insurance even after he fixed the bike. Then dropped to just liability which cut it down like 3/4

It's pretty standard, a little on the high side. 250s are uber cheap to insure, since it's such a small bike. The thing tops out at 105 or something....It's no superbike. lol The guy before me was paying 11$ a month...I'd just call around and get some quotes. I know I looked at a 500 and a 650 and they were a LOT more.. as in 45$ (500) and 70$ for the 650. this is just liability.

That said, this thing has plenty of power to get around in traffic. It is suppose to do mid 14s in the 1/4 mile, and hopping on the freeway and getting up to 85 is no problem at all. any more power right now and I'd kill myself and/or get in trouble.
