Bought it, went in to take a look, again asking was 6100 and i totally feel in love, they were taking to me about the price and i said no way they asked what i would pay. I knew 5500 was price of msrp plus taxes and licensing. Then again i knew that this has the new factor. I said 5800 otd. I was taking to both the owner and the sales manager. The owner started laughingand said you have any idea how fast this will sell for 6100, its only 1 of 3 in the state! I said forget it then but thanks for letting me look at it. as i started to walk away i could hear the sales manager talking to the owner and he said, this is 1 of 3 in the state and we don't know when more are coming, if word gets out we let this one go reasonable it could really help us. And then ask of a sudden the owner yells out you still want it, consider it yours. Filled out the paperwork and took it home. It was dark by the time i got home so no pics until tomorrow. But i can say this on my ride home i didn't go above 7k rpm and let me say it makes the 250 look weak, is constant power with no lag, its awesome. People can complain about the price if they want, but in my mind i got a good deal, i bought it as a commuter, so i didn't want angering bigger, but i can say it puts a way bigger smile on my face than my 250

Cbzdel's experience is why I need to stay well away from the stealerships, I'll go in looking for a $40 helmet shield and leave $6000 poorer...

Nice one. That's my car/bike buying strategy as well. I WANT to buy a bike, they NEED to sell one; they're the ones that miss out when I walk out the door.

It happened, best I could do for now, I had to go into work this morning so I just snapped this and took off


The white is VERY strange, the flake in the paint gives it a different color depending on the light.. Sometimes it looks white, other times it looks gray, other times it looks like it has a blue tint to it. I really like it. Last night I was following my wife home and she had to stop at a gas station and I was getting compliments from the people around me that they loved the color

Worst part about it, it really makes the 09' 250 look dated parked next to it! Kawasaki really did a good job on this one!

I really don't need to be reading/viewing this thread, but since I am... Is the riding position on the 2013 the same as the 2012?

Umm that was also when they were trying to clear out inventory for the year, it wasn't a brand new model, and it was 6 years ago.
