Is this a good deal?



I am trying to buy a 2011 ZX6R and have two options.

First Deal(Blue): Price is $5,000.
4,200 miles on it.
It has some scratch as you can see in the picture.
Only thing after market parts is the Two brothers aftermarket exhaust.



Second Deal: $6,200
2,100 Miles on it.
Only thing after market seems to be the exhaust.

Which one will be a better deal? Want to spend less so.....
Would ya let me know?

Neither really seem that amazing of a deal, just the going price. An amazing deal is when you buy a 2013 zx6r with 800 miles for $6700

Agreed. They actually seem slightly overpriced, depending on the area.


Or when you buy an '09 with 3100 miles and almost $9000 worth of performance parts/upgrades for $4,000

OP,

The graphics package on the second bike does not look like it's the OEM design.... that would make me think it has after market fairings. The blue bike has some scratches; they're not terribly significant other than making the bike less attractive. Mine has similar marks after I dropped it at about 10 MPH. Not bad enough to spend the money on new fairings, IMHO -- but I'm out there to ride and couldn't care less about impressing anyone else.

After market fairings are typically bought due to an accident that was serious enough to damage the OEM plastics to the point where they had to be replaced. Or, someone was so OCD that they couldn't stand a few scratches.

The other scenario for non OEM plastics is for a track bike which may be coming back to the street -- this would be more common, than the OCD scenario.

Either way, were it me and I had the choice of the two I would lean towards the one that is closer to stock. The mileage isn't really a concern as neither is anywhere near a major service point.

The biggest factor in the decision should be the mechanical condition of the bike. Seals, sprockets, chain, tires, suspension, obvious frame damage, rough running, excessive mechanical noise while running..... smoking, etc. Condition of brakes and brake fluid it near the top of the list.

If this is a bike you intend to ride, the less you have to spend to keep it on the road means that you can ride it that much more.

Fairings are not stock, meaning 99% it's been into some kind of crash.
Also if you buy it, you will have to get another exhaust, instead of that cheap "screamer".


First bike IMO is best of both.

So how much will be a good deal if I do buy those?
Blue one,,, according to ad it said it was dropped on his drive way due to a hump...
And the second one I think it is a just a sticker. Not sure what condition it will have under that, but I have seen that sticker before.
I might have to ask him though.

Let me know what ya think to be a good deal to pay for each bike..

Thanks for the response

Look on Kelly Blue Book, NADA, and then research on local websites for what the going pricing in your area is like. I have found that Cycletrader is often a good way to see what retail may be for a similar bike to what you want.

Craigslist is my last choice for relevant info.

If you're trying to save some cash I'd personally go for the blue one. The fact that it has some obvious damage might have the price go down some more ontop of what it is. Of course, make sure it runs good before you buy it.

To be fair, let's not jump to conclusion about the aftermarket fairings. I'll bet those are OEM fairings with a vynil kit on. Lots of people (squids) do that.

Here's the brand...on a zx10r, but still...look familiar?

A good deal would be like $4000 for the blue one and under $5500 for the green one.

They both have shitty exhausts btw, not that it really matters much since they both still have the giant cat boxes. Might as well still have the stock exhaust then.
