Is it a good idea to get a Ninja 500R for my first bike over a used 02' YZF600 (not the R6)?
Beginning with the 2004 model year Kawaski dropped the MSRP... I think it was $4999 and now it's $4599, or something like that. Don't remember the exact numbers offhand. With a little work, you can find a dealer that will go even lower... that's probably the case with the first dealer. The OTD price from the second dealer is probably based on the $4599 MSRP.rfkicker2000 said:Actually guys, it was $4399 but with freight/prep it came out to $4615. He didn't have it in stock, so I went with the blue 05 ninja for $4883 out the door from a diff. dealer in my town (with everything it'll be $5100 to get it on the road) so you guys didn't get ripped off!

lol, the first time you actually realize how much wind is out there is always a bit scary.drmnlateef said:Hmmmm is that 138 km or mph? From what I've read the 500 will get to 118 mph. I'm nowhere near that as I just got the bike.....I was bout to shit in my pants at 65....and I'm still in my break in period.
