My cousin is willing to giving me his 07 ninja zx6r(under 1200miles)for $2500 payoff amount. He getting deploy in aug and he doesn't have time to ride anymore. I plan on buying this and something smaller to improve my riding skills. I'm not gonna lie and say I will not ride it. would this be good investment?

You probably shouldn't use the term "investment" unless you're going to sell it off without having ridden it. What I think you're asking is if this is a good price. The answer is that it is insanely good if the bike doesn't have a cracked or bent frame and its functional.

By the way, definitely take the Motorcycle Safety Foundation course. It can and probably will save your life.

I've taking the course already...bike has no defects and when I say investment...my wife wants to take the MSF next year. so if I think I'm ready to move up, I can give her the smaller bike or if I'm not ready to move up I can sell the bike and get something im more comfortable with.

No offence, but it would be stupid of you to ride the 6 if you've gone and bought a smaller bike to improve your skills on. One ride of the 6 and you'll be thinking, "Hey, this is easy, I won't bother with the little bike." This would be a big mistake.

Take your time to hone your skills on the little bike. Give it a year. Seriously. There is far more to riding a bike than just keeping it upright. Any monkey can twist a throttle. You'll learn FAR quicker on the small bike as your brain will be able to keep pace with it. The 6 will react to your inputs quicker than you can process and you'll be chewing bitumen before you know it.

In a year, you can pass the little bike (and your year's worth of experience) onto your partner and jump on the 6. :thumbsup:
