you are 3 times one of me, so imagine me with
two passengers, doing 85mph [137kph] up hill..
on a 250 with 15000 miles up [24000km]
with external damage [from ?]..
i almost bought a 2011 cbr250r in pristine condition,
very low miles, for au$4000 [under 3000us$]
[opted for a new cbr300ra for au$5500]
reason for seller stating firm price, no offers,
and my seeing it as a good buy, was its condition..
pristine, very low miles, garaged etc, etc..
while cbr250r is capable of carrying heavy riders,
its designed around 'the average', including novices
for a lower average weight.. average speed limits
tend to be lower worldwide [aust 37, 44, 50 & 68mph]..
think of golf clubs, while you could hit the ball with
a putter etc, for long shots a driver would be chosen [etc]..
so buying a motorcycle depends on intended use[s]..
then getting the best deal you can on the best bike..
selling is like selling anything..
depends on who wants to buy your product..
and for motorcycles, what you are willing
to offload onto another motorcyclist,
perhaps a novice etc..
why not approach your honda dealer
[or other brand dealers] to check out their
trade-in offers on more powerful motorcycles,,
suitable for you and your riding conditions...
honda have many excellent [mouth watering] larger
powerful models for all riding conditions..
