Ok so I wrecked my 09 (as a lot of you know from my previous threads) and I'm looking for a new CBR600RR. I really loved the bike and can't bring myself to buy anything else.

Right now I am looking at three bikes

(in order by preference)

  1. 2009 Red and Black with ~3K miles - Trying to talk down to $6500 (listed at $7K) http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/mcy/3774585748.html
    LOW mileage, not a big fan of the color. Guy said there are some scratches on the black paint? not exactly sure where
  2. 2008 Silver with 7K miles - $6600
    http://www.cycletrader.com/listing/2008-Honda-Cbr600rr-110276078
    cheap, like the color.
  3. 2012 Black with 600 miles - $8500 http://www.cycletrader.com/listing/2012-Honda-Cbr600rr-110194375
    Expensive (compared to the other two) LOVE the color, LOVE the mileage.
So... which one would you guys choose? (Leaving color preference aside really..)

I like the '09 and '12 options

Things to consider with the '12: Was the 600 mile service performed? Are they really willing to come off $500 bucks?

Look at what you can find new ones for: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/New-2012-Honda-CBR-600-CBR600-CBR600RR-LOWEST-OTD-PRICE-EBAY-/271199895345?pt=US_motorcycles&hash=item3f24c5ff31

By scratches on the '09, does he mean dropped? or "swirl" marks that are almost impossible to prevent on black bikes lol $6500 is a good deal for the '09 if it hasn't been dropped.

All three seem over priced to me.

Given prices are typically different in different parts of the country but I paid $5,800.00 for a 2009 zx6r with 3K miles and perfect condition.

I would have a hard time paying that price for any of those bikes.

Not sure about the service. I'll ask. Thanks! :thumbup: He did say he would sell it for $8500. I get the feeling he is desperate to sell.

As far as the scratches on the '09 goes, I'm not exactly sure. He didn't give me much info.

Hmm... I'm not really sure I can agree with you. They are all well below NADA's Average retail, except for the '08.

Anyone else agree with Austicus?

They are decent deals especially for the time you're buying. Are they steals...no. Will an '09 Honda with 3k in mint condition ever sell for $5800 during prime time...HIGHLY unlikely. But yes, deals do come up.

If I recall correctly both my '09s I picked up with under 700 miles for $6200 and $6500 but the time of year was not peak season.

If I was considering paying 8500 for an '12 with 650 miles on it...I would not blink to buy brand new for 8900.00 and have the piece of mind that I broke the bike in properly, etc. I think 8500 for last year model thats been used is a little much. I would expect to pay 8 during prime time.

That's not bad. But it seems like ninjas just generally tend to go for lower? There's an 08 with 6k miles asking $5900 here and it's pristine. He can't sell it. But if that was a cbr I know that would go lol

They seem a little high to me as well.
I love the 09's paint scheme. The others seem a bit boring, but that's me.
