Summary:

Perfect Starter Bike

Faults:

Nothing went wrong with this bike at all... only slight carb icing on very cold mornings and it disliked cheaper brands of gasoline.

General Comments:

I purchased this motorcycle as my first bike. As I was limited to 25 KW for my first 2 years of having a bike license in Spain, it was perfect for learning on.

I could keep up with larger engined sports bikes through the curves and filter through traffic easily as it was quite narrow.

One can still purchase a ZZR 250 brand new in Spain for 5000 Euros including tax and registration, which is a bargain. As it goes, I paid 3000 Euros for mine.. I used it for a year and then sold it on for 3500 Euros!!

Highly recommended!

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
