So I'm looking at 2007 CBR 600rr for sale in my area. It looks like it is in overall good condition so I'm considering going to take a look at it. It has about 22k miles on it, a jardine carbon fiber slip on, graffiti graphics and a power commander. I was wondering if anyone had any input on whether or not this bike would be worth taking a look at because it seems to be priced fairly low so I'm suspectign there might be some underlying issues? Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks for the response. Just reading a few of those posts is making me rethink about the SS right off the bat. Even though I've been riding a couple years on the road already, I haven't consistently ridden my own sport bike, I've been riding a Harley Sportster 1200 the past 2 years. So I think it might be wise to not jump right to a supersport

You don't want to go to a supersport. I was 19 once. I know how tempting it can be... but it's a bad idea.

Great to hear - 600SS bikes are quite a handful on the street. There are many upsides to starting on a smaller bike: the learning curve is much more manageable, your confidence will increase much more quickly, and will become a better rider faster than if you were to start on a SS.

While I know the main criticism to starting small is "I'll sell the bike 3/4/5/6/etc months later cuz I'll be bored!", but simply put, that's a load of malarkey. A 250 can still bite, and is capable enough that even pro riders enjoy thrashing them around. Furthermore, they hold their resale very well - Yes, you might sell it relatively quickly, but trust me, you won't lose more than $200 on the deal.

Mandid no one fill you in? The NINJA 300 is out and it's FUEL INJECTED! And looks better than a CBR anything RR. Better get on that hot new fiery sex on wheels before some other douche takes one and gets all the ladies!!!

I wouldn't want to ride a bike that's on fire.

Man, you crazy

I'd say if you have two years+ on a Harley, you will be just fine on a 600. No need to bore yourself with a 250 Ninja. If you have enough discipline to be stingy with your throttle hand you will be fine. My FIRST bike ever was a GSXR 600 along with thousands of other riders. A 250 is like a scooter that handles really well IMO.

Yeah with 2 years under your belt you'll be fine, SS bikes aren't my cup of tea, but if that's what you want, go for it.
