Looks like it's been nicely set up - not sure if he'll go for $4500, probably closer to $5500 but you never know. "$7K in the bike" isn't too far off.

Sorry I miss took his cc displacement on the side as the mileage. Well he's not even asking for $5500 so it seems fair but I guess it wouldn't hurt to try. He he says no it still seems like a good deal even at $4899.

There's also this one for $4200 OBO all stock with 1000 miles. So I could potentially get this one for a really good deal. I'm bad at this CL stuff. haha

800 miles, barely broken in so $4900 is reasonable - maybe he'll throw in the stands and the take-offs too. Folks on here are often looking for rearsets, mufflers, etc., so that can sweeten the deal even more.

Thats a great find save you lots in upgraded parts, judging from the pictures it looks like he's fully loaded and he's giving a good deal already, if you look carefully he's got a big boat besides it so he's probably lost interest and found himself a new pass time hobby. Don't waste time other wise someone else will beat you to it

Go for it! It's a deal. You wouldn't have the sellers phone number would you?

I'm still waiting for an email reply so no phone number. :(

Do any of you have experience with the Ninja 300? I found a black 2013 for $3000. It's been dropped with minor scratches and has 6k miles. As a college student I'm looking to save as much as I can. I'm looking to keep whatever I purchase for a long time and don't plan on ever moving up CC. Do the pros of the R3 out weigh the Ninja 300 that I should just dish out the extra cash for the R3 or are they so minimal that it doesn't matter. At the moment if I were to get the R3 I would have to finance it but if I go with the Ninja 300 I could buy it outright and maybe even get it less for the asking price.

The Blue/Silver one looks like a good deal. It's all stock, with only 1k miles on it. It's "unmolested". I'm sure he would take $4k for it.
Jump on it, before someone else gets it.

Hahaha I know I know... I don't plan on dabbling with 600s till I'm done with school and or get a well paying job. Though hearing about 1000 and 600 guys selling their bikes for a 300 makes me feel better. :D

Alright so I think I've decided to get a Ninja because of insurance. The 2015 R3 came to $589 a year, 2013 Ninja 300 is $196 a year and for kicks and giggles the Honda CBR600RR is $1016. For the sake of saving $400 a year the Ninja just makes more sense as a learner and someone on a student budget. My mind says Ninja but my heart is saying R3. haha Thanks for all of your input guys! Hope to be a real R3 member in the future!

There is no reason those two bikes are that far apart in insurance rates.
Did you try STATE FARM? Shop around, and get the R3. You know you want the R3!

Jeez, $1K to insure a CBR600RR? I'd gladly pay that. He11, I'd pay $2K. Is this for full coverage?

I hate California.

Yeah that's full coverage and I'm up in Oregon. A factor could also be that we have some of the safest roads for motorcyclist. That's what my endorsement instructor said anyways.

Very cool. I'm sure the theft is muted there as well. It's out of control here, specifically Los Angeles.
