Hello and Welcome!Hey all, so I'm looking to buy a zx-6r 2011 in green/black. I currently own a Honda CBR250r 2012, and looking to move up in engine size. I've been riding for about 2 years now and just want something with a bit more power.
Anyways, a kid i know in town is selling his 2011 ZX-6r. At first i thought he told me it was a 2009, but then after doing research i realized it was a 2011. When I confronted him about it, he said it's a 2011... I could have been mistaken but I'm pretty sure he told me it was a 2009..
So the bike has approx 4k miles on it. It looks fairly new, but there's a scratch on the rear seat. I feel like the bike has been dropped before. I took it for a test ride and it rode fine. The cosmetics seem okay and I really didn't see anything wrong other than the scratch on the seat.
So he's asking $7k... He has extra gear too which he wants to throw in. A helmet, jacket, pants and gloves, but I don't need that...
My questions are, is this a standard price range for this year? with this mileage?
Do i need to look into first service costs as well? The tire tread looks fine, and the bike rides like it has 4k miles on it. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I am sure others will chime in but here is my input
1) 4k miles on the tires means you will need a new set rather soon. (Will run you about $350 installed)
2) For a 2011 $7k is slightly high...especially if cosmetically it is not "Mint" condition, although the mileage is about right.
Its not a "bad" deal.....but I think you can do better...like say $6500 for his bike, or cough up an extra few $$$ and buy a brand new "left over" 2013/2014. I see you are in NJ and there should be plenty of new ones left on our side of the pond with all this snow at decent discounts.
Also...I understand he is throwing gear in to sweeten the deal.....if you don't have gear that could save you a couple of $$$ so in that case $7k would be an Okay deal.
p.s. if the bike was dropped the value "drops" too....so $7k should be out of the question at that point
