The Newsest kid On The Block! CHARB

Hey guys, thanks for checking out my thread.

i'm a total newbie to bikes, i have admired bikes since i was a kid and been on a few as a passenger, the closest thing i have gotten to driving a bike was a scooter (true story).

I am now working on my license as i am planning to get a bike as soon as i'm done, something in the 250CC range. I'm a quick leaner but i like to gradually progress and not jump steps as i'm not planning on getting hurt. I would like to start on a 250 and learn everything about it till i know it like the back of my hand, and then think about upgrading.

I am an individual who really likes to research. till i get my license, i am looking online on bikes and safety gear. though i am sure that once i start browsing this site, i will find plenty of threads about safety gear, pros and cons and stuff like that, no input in the world is better than a rider's, so that's why i am here.

Speaking of input, i have narrowed down by choices for bikes to the following 3, i hope i can get some input on what you guys think and suggest a 4th in case i have missed one.

in 250CC

1. Kawasaki Ninja 250R
2. Honda CBR 250
3. Suzuki GSXR 250

I really like the looks (don't wanna sound like paris hilton here) of the kawasaki, i have seen a few vids on youtube and the i love it already.

so what do u think guys? pls let me know.

Many thanks.

Won't make too much difference, so get the one you like the looks of and that sits best. As a new rider I'd also recommend getting a used one. No need to take the hit for a new bike and there is a reasonably high chance you'll drop it at least once and break something and get a few scratches. Won't feel as bad if its used.
