If anyone is looking for a commuter bike I've got one for sale. It's a 1999 Honda Nighthawk 250cc. Get's about 75mpg on Gas, Top speed is 85mph, You can use it on the highway if you need to. I have it listed locally for $2,500 o.b.o., but I'll sell it to someone on here for 2,300. If you're interested send me an email [email protected]
This was my trainer bike before I got my ZR-7s, I thought I'd be able to keep both, but can't afford to maintain two bikes. Here's a picture. It's only got 2,600 miles on it, and I just gave it an oil change and had the brake cables replaced.

Even though they offer mediocre performance, I've always liked the looks of the Honda Nighthawks, both the 250's and 750's. You might have a hard time selling the thing, unfortunately-- lots of dealerships (especially this time of year) have new Kawasaki 250 Ninjas selling for less than what you're asking for a used Honda. I don't know how much the little Nighthawk itself retails for, but my guess is that you could find one in a showroom this time of year for not too much more than you're asking for your's. Unfortunately, unless you have a Harley or a Ducati, it seems like motorcycles are never very good financial investments. I saw a ZR-7 on eBay with half the miles mine does, in just as good of shape, that didn't even get one bid for $2600. That sucks.

If you do sell it, great, let us know. I just wouldn't get my hopes up. And besides, you can never have too many motorcycles. :)
