    Sounds like you haven't rode a ninja 300.

    Besides the purpose of a learner bike is not speed and power but education and confidence.

    Yea that saying is only true for the first week of riding.


    Mate bought a Ninja EX250r. 2 weeks later? wanting to upgrade.

    As for OP. Id recommend heading to Cyclespot (barrys point road)

    Theres a CBR250rr MC22 there for 5.5k. Take it for a test ride brow then you can compare it to the ninja 300 (assuming they let you test ride it)

    Go search Kiwi Biker, thousands of threads on this. Do you have any other biking experience? If you have lots of cash to throw around you might even want to consider the new LAMS Ducati


    Edit: Also anyone that pays $5k+ for a 20yo 250cc 4 stroke is a fool. Don't do it!

    Basically zero riding experience other than toying around.

    No idea where barrys point is? I assume auckland lol? I'm in napier.

    I'd rather not spend 12094381902479178924$ on a ducati lol.

    Limit is 10k for learner bike and then 20k+w/e i can sell my learner bike for once i get my full.

    Holy shit 10k is heaps for a learner bike. Might ad well get a 250 ninja for around 5k and save the difference. Don't think you'll notice it anyways.

    10k was a lot for the ninja but it is a bloody good bike with a warranty, digital speedo/fuel guage /clock electronic fuel inj and a super smooth gearbox. Aside from the tiresome break in period owning a new ninja 300 has been an absolute joy. Also consider the SE edition as it should hold its value better than a black or white one a year or so on.

    Hyosungs do not have the build quality of jappers. Don't spend too much on a 250, because its often wasted money when you upgrade.

    I understand just like with cars, buying something new is going to result in 1/4 of the value leaving as I drive off the lot. I think i need to drive the SE one to see how I like it, I guess that is the main thing with bikes? I'm roughly 5"6 so the taller bikes would definitely cause issues lol.

    Have a look at the 250 honda hornet and bandit. They can be had for about $3k and are great bikes, 4 cyl though and generally older so more $ for service.

    Honda VTR is a nice vtwin. Otherwise the trusty ninja, looks cool rides well and easy to maintain

    The Ninja 300 is a good learners' bike, but you have about a 95% likelihood of dropping your first bike. I recommend getting something cheap and cheerful, and cranking through your licences as quickly as possible, and upgrading when you get your full.

    Do not buy an expensive bike for your first. Especially not a CBR250RR MC22. You will die. (banned for L platers anyway?)
    Get yourself a GN250 or similar. They retain their value for a resale in 6-12 months time.

    Also, check out Youtube for reviews and comparisons. Because there isn't a lot of choice compared with cars, you have heaps of videos.

    Eg:

    Good point, so you recommend dropping 5k~ on a learner bike and adding the additional 5k to offset onroad costs / gears?

    GN250 look shit imo, might as well add pink tassels to them.

    Just spend 5K on a second hand CBR / Ninja 250 and 5K on mint gear that you will still use on your 20K bike.

    Of course it looks shit. It's about upskilling. But if LA is wanting a real sports bike as his first, he'll get one . Just be careful.
