Hey guys, So I have been looking to get a bike for a while now, but I'm not too sure how to go about it. I wasn't too sure which forum would be best to post in, so please let me know if I've stuffed up. I've been pretty keen on an R3 for a while now, and am trying to figure out the best way to go about it. My current options seem thus: 1) Second hand, private sale. Guy listed an R3 yesterday for $6200 (4000km, Akra slip-on, fender eliminator, first-service done), I went and checked it out and it's spotless. He said he would go to $6000 but no lower. I may call again and offer 5900, he didn't seem that rushed to sell though. I was initially very keen on the slip-on exhaust for the R3, but after hearing it in person I don't think it's much louder than stock, it certainly looks better though. I am not sure if this is good value or not, considering the mods vs the high km. 2) Was offered $6400 by a dealer for a new 2015 R3 without any negotiation. I figure I could get this cheaper again as I am paying with cash. 3) Same dealer has a second-hand model with 1600km and no mods listed at $5900. I figure again that I could get this lower. The other thing to factor in is the ~$210 transfer fee and stamp duty for the second-hand bikes, whereas the new bike would be all included. The 4th option is a Kawasaki z300, I was offered a new 2015 model for $6115 from a dealer (7000 originally), I might be able to get this a shade lower too. I figure that this may be a little better for commuting on too, with the straight bars. Insurance is about the same for an R3 or Z300 for me. Any help would be appreciated, as I really don't have much of an idea how to go about this. Cheers.
