2001 Ninja 250 worth 1900 bucks?

Theres a 2001 Ninja 250 at my local dealer for $1900. 5900 miles.

Sound like a good deal?

It has been lightly dropped, as one of the side fairings is cracked around the mirror.

Frankely, im sick of looking for a 500 or 600cc bike. There are none around here, or all are like 5000 dollars for a 8 to 12 year old bike. What is up with that? cmon

I am a new rider, with experience with dirt bikes, but I am still being safe here. At least as safe as you can be. (Thinking about a 250 shows that doesnt it? lol)

Its just before the season ends, where I can get the bikes the cheapest, or hopefully talk this guy down a bit.

Sound like a good price or should I wait to find another bike?

Hey, I had a FZR600, trust me, you don't need a FZR600. hehe.

Frankly, I would wait for another one. If you live in an area where you have to store your bike for winter, you might as well wait anyway until you get a good deal on something. Come spring time, prices are high but more bikes on sale to choose from, but in between, there are still some good deals out there.

Durring the winter, prices will come down, all depends who has what, and how bad they wanna sell it...try a private party if possible, you'll get a better price, and usually a better bike..

I'd recomend nixing the 600 for a first bike..the 250 you discrible sounds a tad high...also check into a GS 500, EX 500...

I'd suggest keep looking. You can find a nice F2 or F3 for $2-4k.
