Default I might be picking up a new Ninja 250 tomorrow

As it turns out I'm heading up north on an assignment and there's a Kawasaki dealer nearby that has a few new Ninja 250s in stock. I called and they made me an awesome cash offer on one, so I may buy one tomorrow as a second bike. I'll post more tomorrow night and photos if I get it!

Beejay, they offered it for $3000US, brand new. Usually the 250 sells for about $3800-$4000US here, so that's quite a deal. I hope it works out.

Hey everyone, thanks for the kind words. The dealer has three 250s - a green(limited edition), black, and blue. I'm after the blue one. If the green model was the standard solid green, I would choose that, but the bike they have is the special edition green with the stripes and check pattern, which I am not crazy about.

I went in today but the fellow I spoke with on the phone was not in, so I'll head back tomorrow. I would really like to close the deal and ride one home! I'll post details of the outcome tomorrow!

Congrats Vert1go. Waiting for more details!

Hopefully, 250s will become affordable in India too, within another 5 years.

Every Indian's expectation. But, we all know deep down this is only a wish which will never materialize.

250 will be affordable in another 5 years, but by then we'd be wanting some 500 cc bike.

*sigh* i wish. This can only happen if condition of the roads improve drastically. which i think is improbable in the next five years.
