    I had a 2011 gt250 for a year, great bike no problems at all. Would happily have one again if doing things over.

        I had one as a one day loaner while my bike was being serviced. Not sure if it was a 2012, about 8500km's on it, white with red highlights. Looked nice.

        Edit. Looked like this which could be a 2013.

        The only problems I had with the bike was the front tyre was old & scalloped, no fault of the bike. The gearbox also felt worn as I had trouble selecting neutral when stationary. Couple of times It was "locked" into first gear and I had to move the bike back/forward before I could get it into neutral. Probably a loose/poorly adjusted gear shift, I didn't look too closely. Once moving it changed up/down better though not as well as other bike's I've ridden.

        Overall though it was in pretty good shape and rode fairly well, just needed an extra 40 kilowatt's or so!

          yeh that looks like a 2013, i know the hyos have always being hit and miss with the neutral gear selection, that can be improved to some degree apparently, have read they are getting heaps better and many experience no problems at all but still the odd lemon, just worried that with such low kms the problems are yet to come lol....

            I had no gearbox selection issues, owned mine from 0kms to 7800kms (2011 model), it sat on the rev limiter its entire life, had no issues from it apart from being a 250

                  2012 is a decent model for the gt250r, obviously maintain maintain maintain and you should be fine, mind the hyo haters, decent bike for the price and a pretty good swap for what you have

                    Adjusting the clutch fixes the getting it into neutral problem.
                    Coming up to 30K on mine, no major issues, I just keep on top of maintenance.

                      I think they are a bit heavy for their power but I think the same of my mother's 2.0L N/A Impreza so take what I say with a grain of salt.

                          Yeah had pillions on it, other than a sagged spring nothing I am unhappy with considering it was cheaper to start with, I think I may be the lucky one though. Recently got me open class, biggest complaint now is that I still have the hyo and not a real bike
