Ha. Yay Ohio. I didn't feel like driving to Honda East (About an hour drive) So I just printed off their online ad with the 500R price ($4350 I think) and showed the dealer down the street. He matched it no problem. I was happy to save 600 bucks.
This is 2005. An 04 isnt brand new. Yes, you can pick up an 04 636 bone stock with a few hundred miles on it for about $5300 pretty easy if you look.
Personaly I'd rather have the new 05 for about $2,000 more. Undertail is sooo sexy. The rear torque limiter is WAY nice. And the new body design is to die for. I am really having a hard time deciding between the 03/04 and the 05 for a track bike. I just dont think I can justify the cost of a brand new bike for a track bike right now. Not without a couple more years of experiance on the track. If I was buying it for the street though it would DEFINATLY be the 05, HANDS DOWN!!
