As a primary bike? Would get old in terms of power.

If a second ride....buy buy buy.
Fun.

The X/DRZ bikes ARE a bit underpowered...

On that note, when does Tommy come back in town? I need another CBR1000

Yes, almost since 01 when the E model came out. Only changes was tye FCR carb and single ply head gasket (higher compress).

If u buy it u will need at least $1k to throw at it to make it somewhat fast. U need the fcr carb and mrd exhaust to open her up.

most people end up spending GSXR money on a drz after mods. Nothing against the bike itself, it's a great bulletproof platform, but you can find an older one that someone has already done the common mods to for much less than a stock new one.

Very true

I sold my 2009 with a load of mods for 4800. Which i thought was a good price. Ive seen 05s snd 07s with less mods for sale at that price.

FWIW, I chose to do a conversion on a bike rather than buying something like this and it was well worth it!!!
