Which would you buy?

a 1998 750 GSXR with 8k miles at $3400
(located 4 hours away)
OR

a 2002 zx6r ninja with 7k miles at $3500 (which is also in your city)

Driver skill does NOT matter!
I dont have a track and am more of a drag racer anyways.
But will NOT be doing anything crazy like drag racing

Complete Stats on both bikes will be up in an hour.

Only looking to spend the $3500 (MAX) and the rest spent towards Gear!

Thanks Alot!

So much will depend upon you intend to use it 75% of the time for the'98 GSXR750 in name alone sounds great (since I have owned several Suzy GSXR-750 bikes though older then the '98 bike) ONLY it is 10 yrs old in design along with wear & tear, while the 2002 ZX6r is younger & true only 600cc, but then how many times is the normal rider able have his 600cc bike up to 75% of its power level, knowing even on the hwys he is breaking the speed limit, by quite a bit, & depending upon the rider's stills & the riding terrian he might be riding around his maximum or a bit over it. So it would be the youngr bike in my mind.

Lastly the 600cc will be a bet lighter on fuel use.

You realize of course if you buy the Ninja your account from gsxr.com will be deleted, right?

Welcome to the auction world. Cash in hand always beats out other things since so many never follow-up.

Yeah, mate, you snooze you lose. You need to be informed so you can make the right decision straight away.

what my problem was is that I told the owners I would "come look at it" instead of saying "I'm gonna come buy it and pick it up".
