    2. 2011 Honda CB400 ABS
    3. $12k - but thrown in oggys and OEM screen (non ABS is $11k).
    4. Metro Honda/Motorcycles Ringwood

    Unfortunately the CB400s sell before they get here, so no chance of negotiating a lot. The dealers don't make an awful lot on them either. I'm the first to admit the CB400s are a bit overpriced (as well as the $1k premium for ABS and the colour scheme with it though).

    1. Vic
    2. 2009 Suzuki GS500F
    3. $7895 rideaway new - wouldn't go any lower.
    4. Peter Stevens Ringwood

    I did love the CB400 but couldn't justify the extra knowing I would change it after restrictions.
    Purchased new because only wanted to focus on riding without risking mechanical issues I feared from buying second hand, but mainly because I didn't know better.

    In hindsite, if I could go back would get second hand.
