  • What would you buy?

    I have a ZZR that's clocking up the miles like a fat kid eating cake, and at this rate will have about 25,000 kms on it by the time I sell it. However, another rider's GT250R Hyosung will have about 2000 km on it by the time they sell it.

    The bikes have both been serviced regularly by Causeway Motorbikes. Both in excellent condition. The ZZR was ridden over long distances regularly (100 km+) and was used for daily commutes taking roughly 25-30 minutes each day. The GT250R went for the occasional long ride but the majority of the 2000 km are daily 2 minute trips, meaning the engine has been running cold for the majority of its life and knowing the rider's habits wasn't given time to warm up before being ridden a little to relatively hard (I keep saying it's a crime to turn the thing on for such a short ride and I'd rather ride a pushbike than do that to my bike).

    So here's the question:
    Which would you buy over the other? There's no "Neither" or "Other" options for a reason.

    EDIT: Assume the two are the same price.

    given both are the "same" price I would go the Hyo, simply because someone has overpriced the ZZR significantly

      Where is the "neither" option?

        I refuse to concede that a hyosung is a good purchase, in any circumstance.

          Look for something else? Can you put that in the poll? I agree with lee here too, if push came to shove it would have to be the ZZR.

          But then for the prices im guessing you would be paying for these bikes, you could get a tidy RGV.
          I love two strokes. Because they annoy the shit out of people. ^_^

              why do you want to sell you zzr and get another 250?

              Keep it till you get your R licence then buy a big bike
              As a general rule, the better it felt when you said it, the more trouble it's going to get you into.

                I'm not selling it yet, but I'm just posing a hypothetical right now. My sis is going for a R1 or R6 in a few months, as well as her big bike, but keeps saying that value for money the Hyo she owns is better in all aspects than the ZZR I ride. I personally disagree, and while there's a bit of a bias on PSB against Hyo's it was interesting to see the two pitted against each other, especially to see what people would say if they knew the mechanical and riding history of the bike. I'd say she's done about 320'ish days of riding at 2 km intervals, which is a lot of mileage while the engine is constantly cold.

                I think she'll sell it for a LOT more than I will when both of us part ways with our current bikes, largely due to misinforming the person buying her bike about how it was ridden.

                  meh, even if she gets more for hers, at least you got the enjoyment out of yours doing a lot more riding.

                    this poll is useless.

                    You're asking a bunch of people who ride, and a forum which is biassed against hyos. both the bikes in question will more than likely be looked at by complete noobs, and I'd say 85% or MORE of those, would buy the hyo first for looks, and low k's.

                          I wouldn't buy the Hyo if you paid me...

                          How is that even a comparison?? Hyo vs Kwaka? My vote lays with the almighty Kwaka.

                            I must fall into the 15% or less than for checking to see what the general opinion was on these bikes, potential problems and as much information on it as I could find. My sister must be too, because she originally wanted the ZZR or a VTR but couldn't afford one brand new. As must the guy living next door who just bought a used Virago on the advice that his dad offered as to whether it was a decent buy or not. This isn't even considering that I don't know a single person getting into riding that hasn't had an experienced rider go with them to look at used bikes, one who would ask these sorts of questions, or point out things to look for when buying a bike.

                            Then again, what would I know? I am and was just a n00b.
