Who puts an 08 mass production bike in a museum? That sounds fishy...

I don't see the appeal of this particular bike. Things are sketchy. There are a ton of other 07/08's out there.

I'd agree, but if you've ever been to Barber motorcycle museum they have some mass production bikes as well.

The appeal was the low mileage and that it was advertised as a demo, with my research indicating a warranty may have possibly been available. I know everyone has been stating. "OMG DECALS ARE GAY!!!" which i agree with, but didnt care about since they are removable.

Based on these pics and other pics i recieved i didn't see anything wrong with the tires, or anything at all for that matter, cosmetically at least. did you? or anyone else?

Dealer now offered $7500 shipped

Hello kawiforums,

I recently had the urge to buy a green 2008 zx6r and i'd like to hear other individuals opinions before going through with it. The mileage is whats sticking out to me the most and i understand i would still have to comply with the break in process.

How bad of shape could this bike possibly be in? It was "taken care of" by a dealership. just curious.

Bike info:
-Model:Green 2008 ZX6R
-Mileage:19
-Dealer Asking Price:$7,499
-Price shipped to my door:$7,500
which does not include tax, title, or
registration in my home state
(originally dealer wanted $7900)
-Does not come with a warranty
-Dealership is Monroe Motorsports in MI
ACTUAL LINK
2008 Kawasaki Ninja Zx-6r, Monroe MI - 103623112 - Cycletrader.com

PICS:


My main questions are:
-Is $7,500 a fair price shipped? even though tax, title and registration aren't included?
-Is the price fair considering the mileage of the bike?
-Buying a used bike with no warranty? Good or bad?
I'm not really sure about these things myself and I would like to hear other opinions. Thanks to anyone who responds or shares their thoughts, no matter how positive or negative.
here's my thoughts:

Kelley Blue Book

the bottom line is the bike is worth a hair over $6k. PERIOD. additional mods don't mean shit. fancy parts don't mean shit. garaged kept and low miles DON'T MEAN SHIT. it's worth about $6k. and this is AFTER taxes. so i'd start negotiating there. i'd simply tell the dealer that i'm paying no more than $6k OTD and if not i'll go somewhere else. or you can tell them you have a different dealer that's got the same bike for less and pit them against each other. i've done that before with fabulous results.

to give you an idea, i bought my 08 zx-6r in 2008 and paid $8400 out the door. with zero miles. it's kinda funny that 4 years later, it's only depreciated by $900.

if you're willing to travel a little, you can try some shops up by me. K&M cycles in shelby twp or motor city power sports in bloomfield hills. i've bought bikes from both of those places and if you're firm on your conditions, they will play ball...

I still wouldnt pay anything more than 6k for a 4 year old bike. If the guy wants to sell it he will, if hes a motorcycle hoarder good luck getting him to part with it at all, much less coming down on the price.

nada's probably the more accurate guide, but i use kbb when i'm buying because it tends to under-value just a tad. plus, i am not afraid to walk away from a bike if i can't get the owner to play ball on price. there's plenty of bikes out there for cheap, you just gotta look for them...

How much seat time do you have on a motorcycle? You sound like kind of a noob. If you are buying this as your first bike you WILL drop it. I would buy used with some miles on it. There is a reason they have had this bike for so long and nobody has bought it yet.

I would not get hung up on mileage. Some miles like at least 2-3k for every year is better than 0 miles. You will over-pay for this shiny bike, then hate yourself when there are problems with it, or when you drop it for first time.
