HELP. Opinion on price of bike(2008 zx6r).


Update 26NOV2012
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:

got new pics of the bike






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.

Nada average retail is 6850. So considering the miles its not a bad price. I would try and talk them down some more. Don't take any warrenties they might offer you unless it is from the factory. Could be a nice bike to grab.

If they can't help you anymore with fees and stuff by dropping the price then you shouldn't pay a grand over nada value. Maybe a few hundred over but not a grand.

In July this year I bought my 09 from a dealer and the bike had absolutely 0 miles on it. It was still under factory warranty and I walked out the door with 9200 less in my pocket. It seemed like a good price so that's why I took it. And damn it if kawasaki didn't come out with the new 636 a few months later... I wish I would have known about it sooner or I would have waited. But she still looks good anyway HELP. Opinion on price of bike(2008 zx6r).-imageuploadedbymo-free1353811868.410822.jpg
