Im new, wondering about the price

im looking into buying my first bike and i really wanted an r6, not sure exactly yet, im hoping i can handle a 600 because thats what i want lol. but anyway im wondering what is the average price i would be looking to pay for a used r6? i dont want one thats in real bad condition but i dont want to pay huge money for my first bike either. would there be any 2000+ r6's in good condition for like 3,500? the year doesnt really matter im just trying to get an idea for a bike that doesnt look very old.

It is highly reccomended that first time bike owners stay away from the SS bikes due to the large amount of power combined with newbie lack of experience. It can result in disaster.

The SV-650 would make an awesome starter bike. You should not get bored with it right away.

He's refering to the "keep newbies away from race replicas" commeete. Honestly I dont feel like saying the same thing again today.
