2004 suzuki 600 katana?

I have been looking for something used in the 3 to 4 grand range and can't find anything at all in my area. In the cycle trader I saw an ad for 04 600 katanas. They are asking $5300 new at a dealer. What kind of performance would one of these offer? I'm only new to sportbikes not riding.

600 Katana

$5300 would be a really good deal for a brand new 600 Katana, as the MSRP is $6299.

In terms of performance, although not cutting edge, it's still respectable. The engine is derived from the original air/oil cooled GSXR 600/750 motor. Puts down about 70-72 rear wheel horsepower. Enough to get it through the quarter mile in the high 11's to low 12's, and push it to a top speed of about 135.

If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

So i guess it would be a pretty good starter sport bike. I just also was told my buddy has a 91 600 katana he'd let go for 1250. I have to go check it out tomorrow and see what kind of shape it is. I didn't really want a katana but i suppose i could deal with one for 6 or 8 months before i get something else with a little more power.
