Dealer offers me a ""good deal"" for 2011 ZX6r..you think riding buddies?

I sold my 09 ninja 650 about a month ago just because I think its time to climb the engine displacement ladder (lol). So I asked for a quote from a dealership in Toronto Canada, he said he has this amazing deal for a brand new never ridden 2011 Ninja ZX6r with a 2 year Kawasaki warranty, will ship to my city (4 hours away from dealership) and if I buy it before the new year I would get an extra year warranty.

The total comes to $8,999 CAD, with tax comes to about $10, 200.

I couldn't get the MSRP from Kawasaki.ca for it did not post the price (or I do not know how to navigate the site)

If I do get the bike it will be financed, we didn't go into detail but he stated typical rates of interested would fall around 8%.

Let me know what you guys think, would really appreciate the help

I think, don't finance toys

Going from a 650 to a 599 is actually descending the displacement ladder.

Because toys aren't necessary. So pay cash. Loans should be reserved for shit you NEED, but cannot afford. Not used to just buy more shit and take a loss. Financing a new bike is not smart.

If you can't pay cash for a toy, you are living beyond your means, welcome to America.

I agree...even buying a used one private sale with minimal miles and a yr or 2 old can save you a ton of money. I have bought all my bikes 1 or 2 yrs old with less than 3k miles from what seemed to be responsible owners. I pay cash and though I did finance the Aprilia, it was a small portion since the deal was too good to let up and I paid it off in a few months after I sold another bike. Be smart..buying a new one off the lot is ok if you don't mind losing a bunch of cash as soon as you leave the dealership...taxes and other fees are substantial in themselves.

True. I buy new, but like my S3 that I bought for $3k under MSRP OTD, I find smoking deals. Then I pay cash. Borrowing against tomorrows wages for a toy, is lunacy.

I only buy it new and financed if it is 0% apr deal that Kawasaki runs every once in a while. I just pay it in full before the two year 0% agreement. Usually I pay it within a year. No interest no hassle and a brand new bike.

1) The guy is from Canada.
2) More people finance than pay cash....welcome to America.

If you're living beyond your means, then a bank won't approve you for a loan for anything, toy or not. Yeah paying cash will save you a lot of money in the end compared to financing, but young people can finance a car or motorcycle and actually build their credit by doing so. So no it's not stupid to finance a toy.

Most violated KF rule: 2. - Post titles should be descriptive of the contents of your post. i.e. "Help with fuel injectors" instead of "HELP!!!!"

This. I have no credit due to being stationed in England first and not having a credit card till I moved back to the states. That said, I bought my Aprilia and financed it and am building my credit as we speak.

Am I living outside of my means? Let's see. Can I afford the monthly payments? Yes. Can I afford the insurance? Yes. Do I still have my emergency fund? Yes. Do I have enough left over after that for food, other bills, and play money? Yes. Therefore I am not living outside my means.

It is just another way of looking at it.

6 bikes and counting.
