Need your help again Kawimembers

So my girl took the MSF and she's ready for a bike.

Needless to say she wants a Kawi... She tells me, she wants a reason to spend all day on Kawiforums like I do

Anyways looking for a little insight into how much we should pay for a used Kawi Looking at this one: J&M Motorsports but the price was too high in my opinion.

What should we offer?

Things to consider, it's going to be her "first" bike. So I expect her to drop it (even if it's just in a parking lot while putting the kick stand down) So I don't want new.

Money IS an issue. It's not that we don't have it, I don't want to spend 5k on a bike at this point when there is a good chance she'll want someone else (whoops, another bike) in the near future.

Also we're trading in this bike:

2005 Suzuki DR-Z125L Pictures & Specs | Suzuki Motorcycles - Suzuki Motorcycle, Dirtbike and ATV Specs and Pictures

but in blue and in good to great shape. What should we ask for it!!! As always your help is much appreciated!

Sell the DR outright, then use the cash as leverage when negotiating on the 250 price.

Wow. Will she hopelessly belabor every point of every thread too?

I hope she enjoys her bike when she does get it. Teach her well.

Why don't you buy used? I've seen tons of 250 going for like under 2g's...You could prob also get a used older 600 for around 3 too. Or say fuck it and do what I did and buy a racebike
