So, I'm looking to buy a new (used) bike. I am looking at a 2005 zx6r and a 2005 zx10r. They both have higher mileage (around 30k). I know that the 6 has seen the track, as the craigslist posting had pics of him on it at the track. The 10 seems like it was well cared for. He has receipts from services done at reputable dealers, and a lot of highway mileage (trips from Portland, OR to Vegas and Canada).
The 6 is for $2900 and the 10 is for $3500. These both seem like great deals, but I think the zx10r will have a better resale if I decide to sell next summer. Both have clean titles.
I have been riding for about 6 years. I rode a ninja ex250 for a couple years, and for the past 2 years, I've ridden a 2005 Yamaha R6. I sold my R6 because I needed some money after over spending in Vegas
. Recently I've been riding my brothers 2004 R1 and I really liked the feel a lot better than my R6.
So I guess the questions I have are, do these seem like a good deal for the mileage? Can the 6 or the 10 handle mileage better than the other? This will be mostly for around town riding with weekend carving, is either going to be better/worse?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
