Used.

But if you do go to a dealer for a new bike remember that cash talks.

Have a cashier's check ready for what you believe to be reasonable and what you're willing to pay and be ready to walk out. Worst they can do is say no but having sold vehicles for a dealer I know they're HiGHLY negotiable on price.

Used. Also buy a book like this one: Proficient Motorcycling, the Ultimate Guide to Riding Well and read it. It will almost make you an experienced rider before you get on the bike.

I am asking because I want to buy Ninja 300 2014 ABS SE and they list this bike for 4500 MSRB at Mainland Cycle Center and probably when you add all the fees it is 5500(500 tax + 500 freight and handling).

I just don't agree with high freight and handling, because when you buy a car you don't have to pay this.
Out the door for five and a half.

You always have to pay Tax. I have done my homework and depending on dealer they can charge different freight. Even for the same bike the same dealer can charge different freight if he knows that customer will pay it. Basically he can give discount to customer about 100$ and increase freight 100$.

I've compared two Mancuos north and southwest and one charges 300, and second one 400. I don't know what they do special about it that handling and frieht is so high. It's more thanttax,doc and licence for ninja 300.

I don't want sound very greedy but because this is not a fixed price and it changes depending on salesman, it should be included somehow in MSRP, so you can haggle this before you go into financing/OTD.
destination charge $345

Specifications and pricing are subject to change.
Dealer sets the actual destination charge, your price may vary.

That's crazy. There is no way in I would not have insurance on a bike I don't even own.

The key word here is "cheap"(less than 3,000)

If the bike were worth a whole lot more than that, I would want full coverage.
That's why I like my SV. Cheap enough to not really give a about, while not being a TOTAL POS.

Financing talks better...they make money on that.

^ For sure. A dealer would always rather finance a bike, but when it comes down to moving units and you have cash in hand you'd be surprised how low they can go.
