  1. Hi Guys,

    I've been riding motorcycles for 30 years now. I've got Suzuki GSX750F for last 8 years but hardly ever use it. I believe it is more commonly known as "Katana".

    Looking forward to be part of netrider community and share my experiences.
  2. Welcome suzuki_bandit The Katana with the popup headlight? I thought that was the ultimate in cool when I was a younger rider.
  3. No, mine is 1995 Katana.
  4. Ok, Not as cool ;) but still a fine machine. I take it you are a Bandit rider normally from the Nic?
  5. Yes, it is fine machine, bullet proof as they call it. I want to trade-in or sell Katana and get Bandit and hence the "bandit" in username.

    Do you think any dealer would be interested in trade-in for Katana? It's has only done @ 16K in all these years. The previous owner ride 100 Kms in 4 years when he had it and I've done 10K in 8 years that I had it.
  6. Good low k's, a dealer is not going to give you much for it though Redbook Prices give it at:

    Private Prices $2,600 - $3,000
    Trade In Prices $1,700 - $2,000

    So if you wanted to recoup the best money for it you would need to sell it privately.
  7. Yeah, I saw those prices on Redbook too. Also, the bike is not registered currently so I got to do blue slip and get it registered/insured before I put on sale. Hope I find someone who is after this collectors item. ;)
  8. As a collectable, provided it s fine mechanically, the bike is worth towards the top of the private sell range, maybe more on a good day. Advertise in the right places Perhaps clubs like the http://ccjmc.net

  10. Welcome,
    The GSX750F is not the Katana in our market, it was given that nickname for the USA market. The Katana as we know it in Aus was a much earlier model and vastly different.
    The GSX750F was the poor mans GSXxxxR and they are not at all sought after as a collectible. They were cheap when new (built accordingly) and re-sale on them was disgraceful.
