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.

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.:thumb: :thumb:

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.

when i bought my 636 there was a 10r and a 12r that were both cheaper than my 636 :/ i would say cause most people only need a 600 series not a "man's" liter bike :)

cause i'm brand new to riding anything at all, (bought the bike with never having even been a passenger on one) so i thought it in my best interest to get the smaller cc bike, i did get a good deal on the last 05 636 they had :) i am very happy with my purchase, and don't feel that i needed the 10. so i left it there for an experienced rider to enjoy :)

Oh, I didnt realize we're talking about a first bike. Stay away from the 10. its a murdering biatch. Come to think of it, try to be carefull on the 636 as well

Good luck

I am so slow, Rumba is 3, 65 lbs. She has a daughter named Lou who is 2. We also call Lou, Le-lou-cifer. A friend of mine breeds them and she actually bred the Geortown bulldog. I love the white ones.
