Does it sound good ? I keep looking because nobody replies it seems. What should I offer. Seems like a nice bike I mostly see blue ones. But this is nice . What do you guys think ?

I would say it's not bad but others would probably say it could be had for cheaper. You don't go to Embry Riddle do you?

Kelly blue book is retail so they already factor in dealer fees and stuff which is a lot more than 200 dollars. And ya add-ons don't really add any value that's why everyone sells their aftermarket stuff seperate when they sell a bike. I think 2800 would be closer to a good price.

imo, no 250; dont give a shit whats put on it, max is 3 grand. whoever believes otherwise is idiotic.

thats' personally what's the max i would pay and i think that's the max you should as well.

and that's only if there is mods which this guy has. otherwise nothing over 2500.

Search around, that price is really high, I'm pretty sure I've seen that bike at Riddle though.

I paid $3500 for my 07 650 in June (peak season) so to me that looks too expensive. This is the offseason, you should not spend more than $3000 on a 250 like some others said. I would personally be looking for a beater 250 for less than $2k to track with but I understand this will be your main bike so I would say wait until a 08 or 09 pops on CL for 2500.

Motorcycles do not use Kelly Blue Book values.

You're comparing a 4 year old bike's price to one that's a year old? Fail

It's not a TERRIBLE price. Average retail for a 2011 Ninja 250R is $3980. Low retail is $3100. It's a fair price for a clean bike.

Scotland I know you like nada but I see more people using kbb for private party stuff who says no one used kbb? Dealers might use nada but like I said I see more people use kbb for private party stuff. What does nada factor in for their retail price?
