Hello there! Im want to upgrade my bike from a Yamaha R15 (which i've been riding for already a year) to a 600cc. Im from Perú and motorcycles here cost higher than US for obvious reasons. Last week i went to my dealer and i saw these beauties in its store. But i don't know if they are costly in relationship to buying a new one (which i don't want and dont need.)

These are the deals that i saw last week: (Prices in USD; all are used motorcycles)

1) Yamaha R6, 2013, 1,982 miles, $12,900.


2) Honda CBR 600, 2011, 3,318 miles, $11,900.


3) Honda CBR 1000, 2008, 11,558 miles, $8,900.


4) Honda CBR 1000, 2008, 5,157 miles, $10,400.


5) Yamaha R1, 2011, 1,802 miles, $12,900.


6) Kawasaki Z1000, 2012, 4350 miles, $10,500.


7) CBR 1000, 2012, 920 miles, $15,400.


8) Suzuki GSXR600, 2005, 8,314 miles, $6000.


9) Yamaha R1, 2008, 7,767 miles, $8,800.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Im interested in purchase a 600cc but im posting all the models that i saw in my dealer shop to know if its prices are too high or not.

To give some orientation, here in Peru purchase a new motorcylce of the year cost like the following:

1) Yamaha R6 - $17,300
2) CBR 600RR - $15,990
3) ZX6R - $16,300
4) Yamaha R1 - $19,990
5) CBR 1000RR - $18,990

Thanks to everyone that help me to get a better deal and make me a smart buyer. I want to learn because i want to ride these machines for lifetime. :thumbup:

Pst: I will use this bike 5 days at week for commute and 1-2 days for the track.

Dealership prices will always be more expensive than if you bought privately. Also, like you said, it's more expensive in Peru than the USA, so only other Peruvians would know!

All the bikes you listed there with the exception of maybe the 2008 R1 and 2005 GSX-R600 are all relatively new bikes with low mileage. Those are probably similar to Australian prices, maybe a bit more. I don't know how bargaining with dealers work there so it's hard to say.

If I were you, I would avoid the R6 (I'm trying not to be biased, but remember this is a CBR600RR forum :p). If you're going to be doing more commuting and a few track days, take the CBR600RR. It's also more reliable and less likely to have things like valve clearances go out of spec at 24,000km. The R6 is not a commuter friendly bike, neither is any the race replicas really, but the R6 is a tad more extreme, how tall are you?

Forget the 1000's, going from an R15 to a 1000 is not a good idea. You should be OK with the 600.

Also, to answer your question about the relative price of buying new vs. old -- it seems to be accurate, you can except that kind of price difference even here. If you can buy privately, maybe even $1000 - $1500 less. Make sure you can get a full service history though!

prices seem to be about 2x more than you could find here in the USA.

Are you friendly with customs officers or know someone in the vehicle import business?

like rinonz says in post above , if you are planning on keeping it maybe buy new?

How much room for bargaining do you have?
