ZX-10 for $8999

My local Kawi shop has one of these for $8999. That is not out the door, but she said that she would not charge me for prep or freight.

So it will be $8999 plus tax and tags. That sounds very cheap.

I am actually in the market for a new 600 (or 636) but this is the same price.

By the way, it is a 2005 in green. 3 miles.

Any opinions?

That zx10r is one mental bike. If you think you can handle it without dying, I would opt for the 10r.

I got the 636 and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. It has more than enough go and it doesn't scare me at all. I feel in total control when riding it. I put some decent miles on a 05 gixxer 1000 and routinely spun up the rear wheel in very fast 2nd gear corners. Scared the shit out of me. I'll stick with the 636 for a while longer, but I can't wait to get a one liter.

P.S. The thing I love about one liters is you can stay in second almost anywhere and never have to worry about shifting.

Not many people can handle this bike, but I have tons of riding experience and my '98 seven-fif is no slouch.

That 636 is going to be alot closer to your 750 then the 10r. Personally I would go with the 636. Its a great bike and plenty of power for everything you need.

The 10R is truly a beautiful machine/beast, but I bet you will acutally have more fun and just enjoy the 636 more.

I have ridden a 2004 GSX-R 1000 and the thing is actually hard to ride. Or, not hard, but nervewracking. Difficult to find an appropriate time to open it up. I dont think I got it above 9k rpm.

I would rather have a 636 but this thing is cheap!

That is a good price, out here in AZ they get more. You could buy that thing and resell it and make some dough! PS- cool bike Henry, go for it. I just got my first liter and it is too fun.

Wish I lived in Pa. I can't even find a left over 10 here. I am looking at the 12 now.

Nice Bulldog in your profile 1percenter. Here is mine.
