I guess the average Ninja 250 rider presents more of a risk than the rest of us. I would pay about the same premium if I replaced one of my KLRs with a Honda CB750 (just an additional $5 - go figure).
I also have an interest in 2 strokes, particularly the RD250. Always keeping an eye out for a Bantam as well.
