Looking to buy a starter motorcycle

My wife will be completing the motorcycle safety class and is in need of a used bike. She would prefer something modern, under 500CCs and not of the “cruiser” style. If you have such an item hanging around now would be a great time to trade it to me for cash. I have searched Craigslist daily and cannot find more than one or two suitable choices so I figured I would shake the PDD tree to see if anything falls out. Reply to this post or e-mail me at junkmailcrapbox @ gmail (dot) com with pics, details and contact info. Thanks.

I don't currently have one, but the ninja 250 has been around for ten years or so, essentially unchanged.  It is a great starter bike.

Thanks PDD'ers for the responses. I took the unanimous advice of my friends and purchased a 2005 Ninja 250.  My wife is thrilled and a little scared so if you see her out and about give her a thumbs up for her new ride. 

She is as happy as this kid.
