    Default Sports Bike for a noob- suggestions please

    Hey guys, I have always had this craze for bikes(even if it was a CD70 as a teenager)
    I want to buy a bike to ride on weekends, no more than 600cc in engine capacity.
    Can somebody give me any suggestions?
    I need the bike to be within 3 lacs(used ofcourse) and maintenance may be expensive, that's okay, but parts should not be a PITA to find.
    any suggestions? expectig 90s models as the later models will surely go past 3 lacs.
    going to buy in January so no hurry or no offers like im selling my bike this evening so come buy it and all.
    im okay with both these looks. (these are cbr600 and bandit 400 btw)

    bandit looks crap.....90s model IS outdated. it's 2 decades old bikes....

    and the ninjas in ur budget will twin engined, no fun....

    take a look at kawasaki ZZR-600.....

    I had a contact number of a person who had one available...will check and tell you...

    it's a decent bike but again it also looks outdated....all bikes in you budget look outdated, even the brand new ones (desi honda chonda) lol....

    Depend on make.
    fiber glass is cheap
    plastic is expensive.
    And price depend on model of bike.

    take a look at this body kit. It's for the cbr250rr (mc 22):

    Tyga Performance - .Kit, Complete Body Set (Street), MC22 T8 - Bodywork

    the kit costs more than $800 , then add customs, taxes, shipping etc....easily upwards of rs.120k.....then if you don't know how to fit it yourself and if you're not willing to read the manual and just give it to a desi ustad....he might screw it up...

    so it's going to be out of your budget...

    So buy a decent CBR250RR, I recommend the yellow one posted before, it looks like its in amazing body condition, the exhaust is also pretty shiny and it's considered a COOL bike abroad ! It's a hard to find bike abroad....

    And here's the reason :

    CBR 250 RR flying with incredible sound - PlayIt.pk

    Cbr250RR burnout - PlayIt.pk

    it's considered to be one of the best sounding sports bikes of ALL TIMES!!!

    I'm lobbying for the CBR250RR....

    here's a track video :

    2013 4 12????????????250?? - PlayIt.pk

    ^I think its a rolling start...

    If you do buy a heavy bike, don't be a kanjoos, spend 10-20k on a decent one piece suit plus good helmet, protect yourself....

    which model/shape of cb250 is everyone suggesting? a good sound and a begginer's bike is whats required. because there is no way im gonna touch a 1000cc thing until i get comfortable on a 250 or 400cc bike.

    watch all those videos I have posted above....

    CBR250RR is this bike and if the seller has correctly told 1999 model, then it is the MC22 :
