Hi all,

I have decided to go back to the motorcycle world again. Looked at a lot of bikes from dual-purpose to sport-cruisers to street bikes. Ended up with my eyes set on a Kawasaki ZZR-600. Not too sporty (compared to a ZX-6R) and yet not "boring". In other words, juuuuusst riiiiiiight... :D

While shopping around however, I came across a brand new '02 ZX-6 at a dealer. As you all know it's the old name for the same bike. As I've never really come across a situation like this before (and owing to the fact that I'm not up-to-date regarding motorcycle pricing) I was wondering if anyone here could give me information as to how much I should bid (haggle) for this particular bike.

All input is greatly appreciated. I'm planning on getting one by next month.

Thanks.

Forgot to indicate that the dealer was originally asking $6,999 for it but said that they would knock off $1000 from it.

michiganarft11,

Thanks. Also found a site called nadaguides.com which gives it an average retail of $4780. I understand that this is pricing for used bikes. But at least I can gauge how much of a hit I would have to take once that bike gets out of the dealer's store and onto the street.

Just hope it's still there next month.

Good find.... I had the same luck back in 93 with a dirt bike.... It was a 1989 yz490 (I know....yamaha) I offered a crazy low price and after they ran my credit... I wheeled it right out.....dont be afraid to low-ball a bid.... I think I bid around 2200....

it was wierd... they just assembld and wheeled it to the showroom, I was getting oil for another bike and started asking questions... he told me it was new but older, stored in Atlanta, stored ? I thought that was strange...I own a busniess and would not keep stock for years)...I asked the salesman how much and his answer really shocked me... he said..."tell me what you want to pay". I smiled....

I doubt that bike will be there long..... what you found is rare....

Move as fast as you can.....

I'm really hot-to-trot excited to get that bike. However, I really have to wait til May so that I would have the funding for this "project".

As they say, "If it's still there when you come back then it was meant to be."
