Greetings from WESTWOOD

hi everyone,
i'm next on the waiting list at Del Amo for a red 2009 ninja 250! Hopefully i'll be able to get it sometime this week. I went to the Kawasaki dealership in Burbank and they tried to charge me $7,000.00 for a black 08 ninja 250 because it had a 3 year warranty and Lo Jack installed so i peaced them. Hopefully Del Amo doesn't try to rip me off, what do you think is a fair price nowadays...

Good luck on trying not to get ripped off. If you can get hold of one under 5k u'd be a lucky one.

$7k?!?!?!?!?!? Are you freaking kidding me!?!!?!?!? Shit. (pardon my language) That is a rip off. I mean I love my lil 250R but to pay almost double what it is MSRP from the factory is ridiculous. I would hold out or maybe look at an 08 model on eBay or Craigslist. May be cheaper.
I should sell my bike if they're going for $7k.

A fair price is MSRP. If Del Amo tries to get you to pay more, go somewhere else or get a different bike.

Out of curiousity... since you're in Westwood why didn't you go to Honda/Kawasaki of Santa Monica (or is it Marina del Rey?) on Lincoln?

If you feel like you've outgrown your 250, you've probably outgrown your helmet too.

The highest I would pay for a 250 is 4600. I got mine for 4000 otd at Corona Motorsports. If it was going to be pay more than that I'd rather get the 650R.

Hello.

I shopped Del Amo when I was in the market and they wanted $5k OTD or higher on '08s. With MSRP increasing $500 on '09, expect to pay $5,500.00 + OTD at that store. If you didn't firm up the price in writing before you left your deposit (seems like you didn't) prepare to get screwed around.

I would keep my eye out for a used '08 250r on craigslist and other dealer website listings like Bert's Mega Mall.

okay so kolbe kawasaki in woodland hills called me at 2pm today and told me they got a brand new 09' navy blue ninja (new color) and it was 5200 OTD so i jumped on it...just got back from the dealership and i'm proud to say i'm the new owner of a navy blue 2009 ninja 250!!!
I need to cancel my deposit at Del Amo now hopefully they don't give me crap about it and Zmoe the kawasaki on lincoln are all out of the bike, pretty much every kawasaki dealership within a 15 mile radius is sold out of them. The bike ships on thursday so i'll post pictures when i get it.
