    Hello everyone! I just joined today!! I'm here in the USA am 18 and I need a bike around $2000-2200! I just got my permit not too long ago and I need a good brand/site/dealer to buy it from! I want a street bike something like a (250 Ninja) I want it to go fast too! like 80mph. I don't want a slow scooter (It has to be a 250cc Street Motorcycle). So basically what I'm looking for is a good bike that i can buy off the net here shipped to my house I don't want one that breaks down or anything it has to be good quality I don't know too much about motorcycles so If it had a problem i'd be confused. anyways thankyou everyone can't wait to enjoy these forums more as a future Chinese Motorcycle owner!!

    rangu66,

    Welcome to MCM depending on how mechanically inclined you are dropship bike could do ya, but look on craigslist for a used 250cc street rocket.
    I would be less concerned about speed and more with your ability to ride. if you just got your permit i would suggest a rider coarse to get a solid foundation. Worry about speed later.
    There are ton of sites out there some are reputable some, well not so much. Good luck in your search.

    Scooterdepot is iffy I had some bad dealings wth them but others have been okay, but that can be said about a number of drop shippers. Its really a crap shoot at times.
    Take a look at these links if this is what you have your mind set on

    Are you asking about the JL-250cc Motorcycle
    at http://www.extreme-scooters.com/jinl...Motorcycle.htm
    I don't know aanything about the bike but I would be concerned about their claim of up to 80 MPH and 100 MPG. In my experience with dealing with about six of these drop shippers is that they either don't know their products or are liars.

    Are you an experienced motorcycle owner/mechanic or have access to one? If not then stay away from these bikes.

    Do more google searches to see if you can find anyone with experience with this bike.

    Take any top speed posted on the web with a grain of salt. Most China bike's speedometers are very optimistic.
    Does that bike have the Honda Rebel cloned engine which is really 234ccs? The Rebel will barely reach a true 70 MPH so a reasonable cruise would be 60 MPH or so.
    Anyway, good luck with the bike.
