I have a deal on the table for $4400 OTD for a brand new 2011 CBR250 with ABS. IS that a good deal or should I try to get a better deal?

I know the 2012 CBR250's with ABS are going for $4500 before taxes and fees.

Have any of you gotten a better deal than $4400 OTD for the CBR250 w/ABS?

Do I really need ABS, this will be my first bike. Also, I'm 6ft, 180, will this bike be too small for me? My inseam is 35".

I paid $4580 OTD for my 2011 NON abs last summer...so it sounds like a great deal to me....and abs is a debate that is as wide as it is long.....I wouldnt have a problem if mine was abs..i just wasnt paying another $500 to have it is all

Thanks for the replies. IS maintenance costly on this bike. I will be doing all of the maintenance, valve adjustments, oil changes, etc except for tire changes.

No.

I'm 6ft 175 and the bike is a solid fit. My buddy is 6'2" 200 and I would say that is the limit but it pulls him well too.

That's a great deal. Jump on it.

Maintenance is fairly cheap. First 600 mile service for me was $224. Other than that, and valve adjustments every 16K, I'll be doing maintenance myself. Oil change will probably run around $15. Chain cleaner, a brush, and lube will cost you about $35. I don't see maintenance costing more than $500-$700 depending on how many miles and tire changes I end up doing a year. :)

In Australia mine (2012) was A$6500 which is $6759 USA so i would say it's a good deal (ride away price).
cheers
