Selling my good condition 2008 Hyosung GT250R 250cc sportbike. 78XX miles, good condition with minor scratches to lower fairings on both sides from separate minor drops. Never crashed and no cracked or broken fairings. Always kept clean and serviced. Good tires and plenty of brake pads, never raced, tracked or punished.

This is an awesome starter bike and great commuter for work or school to save big $$. Almost never gets less than [b]65 mpg[/65], very low-cost to insure, and handles freeway speeds easily. Bright mango yellow color keeps you visible. Clean title in hand, all paid off with no lien on it. $3000 obo. I'm in Oxnard (Ventura County), PM me for more info.

If I recall from the cycle mags, Hyosung is the mfgr with input and major parts from Suzuki.

I believe Hyosung is Korean.

That is a sweet looking little 250.

If anyone is starting out, a 250cc is the way to go. The knuckleheads who start off on 600cc+ crotch rockets are one the main reasons motorcycle crash statistics are as high as they are. It's not a bad investment even if you only want to keep it for a few months because they tend to hold their value (250's are pretty much always in demand). When I bought my 250cc, I turned around and sold it 4 months later for $500 more than I paid even after putting about 3k miles on it and dropping it.

Yeah i started with a ninja 250. Am still alive, and know how to ride now.

Someone that wants to learn, should definitely pick up this bike.

Yes, Hyosung is a Korean company, one of their largest (It's also pronounced Hee-yo sung, make sure you get that right :)). Suzuki outsources some OEM part manufacture to Hyosung for some of their bikes, too.

This is actually a great bike and has some very nice features compared to the Ninja 250, even the new ones. It has inverted forks, dual front brakes, adjustable rearsets, and a bigger, better rear tire than the ninja. It has a digital gauge cluster and even a very accurate fuel gauge. This bike has been nothing but reliable for me. The engine kicks with every push of the button and even in the cold I never have to use the choke (not like CA gets very cold :)).

+1 This was my first bike and I'm SOOOOO glad I started on it. I guarantee I would've wrapped a 600 around something tall and cylindrical. This bike even makes passing the DMV lollipop test a piece of cake, especially for a sportbike. It's also a great school commuter with the amazing gas mileage. I just got a parking permit at CSUN for my other bike. Cost me $41. The permit for a car, more than $160. Talk about saving some bucks. Insurance is also very cheap, even for full coverage. Can't beat a 250 for saving some dough. You can use the money you save to buy more guns and ammo. :) Price is a little flexible and will throw in a good helmet.

I haven't taken it up to top speed, never really cared how fast it can go, but I have seen videos topping it out at 100mph or so. It's also a four-stroke V-twin so it has a nice exhaust note. With an aftermarket pipe, it sounds great. I've also seen good track videos of this bike so it is capable. The tires are the stock and show little wear. They still have a ton of miles left on them.

Here's a shot of a guy on on of these at a track in Malaysia, I think. Stock bike, with stock tires. Not bad at all.

You're right. I just looked and even Truckee is forcasted to stay in double digits this week. Oh, BTW, Ca can have the both the hottest and coldest place in the nation on the same day. I just can't understand why so many people think that Ca is one big beach. It gets very cold in this state.

Back to your bike. A friend of mine has one and loves it! For what they are, these are the cheapest, yet reliable bikes on the market right now. He told me that he was getting up to 80mpg with his.

Here's a shot of the worst of the fairing damage. Just scratches, and due to the angle the fairing makes, they don't stand out. The location is also well away from the focal point of a bike which is up around the tank.

The left side fairing doesn't even really show up. The scratches are almost invisible. You can't even clearly see any scratches in the pic below.

Forgot to mention, the bike has a 2-year warranty. It will expire in June 2010.
