Re: I haven found the squidlyest forum..
Ive never even heard of a GPZ250 until right now. But the new ninja 300 is between 4800 to 5500. Pretty expensive for a bike that almost nobody keeps over a year.
It was hard enough to convince people to start with an appropiate bike when they were cheap, now theyre gonna use the price as an excuse.
You don't get this, they still are cheap...
Someone looking for a learner bike to sell on in a couple of years? They go and get a cheap second hand one, why on earth get a new one. My 1989 FZR250 cost me NZD$3500, with 11,000kms on the clock. That was one of the quickest 250's around, bar the 2 stroke 250's obviously. Thats a 4 cylinder 45hp 250, expensive compared to a single or twin 250.
Someone looking to get a nice small bike for commuting and a bit of fun? They might get a new 250 or 300, and they would keep it for a while.
