I'm working on pounds so my estimate might be a bit off but heres how i see it.
A brand new zx6r will set you back almost 9k GBP = 14k USD
This bike is 4 years old, barely used and going for 7.5k USD = 4.6k GBP
All vehicles lose 25% of their value as soon as they leave the show room floor. So on the day that bike first left the show room its value dropped to about 11k USD = 6.8 GBP.
Lose another 25% after the first year and its worth 8k USD = 4.9 GBP
If it was 2 - 3 years old and in mint condition I would snatch it up. But after 4 years, I think the price is a bit too steep, especially if its been sat a while because it may need a good servicing to get it running properly.
