New Guy Looking for New Bike

Howdy y'all, I've been riding for about a year, recently moved to the College Station area and am looking to move up to a high-end (in terms of horsepower, not price) 600 or literbike (whichever I can find a good deal on first). Feel free to hit me up if you're selling.

Edit: I appreciate the offers thus far. However, my budget is 7K max, preferably less. I can get one of the more potent bikes I'm interested in for under 10K brand new with a warranty, so I'm realistically not going to be interested in anything used that's not at least a few thousand below that.

Name a "potent" bike you can get for under $10k OTD new. Not being rude, I'm just curious.

For sure not what he's talking about, but that's still a good deal.

2014 ZX-10R. I was kinda surprised myself. Is that an absolutely screaming deal, or just okay?

Agreed. Let us know after you pick it up at least.

Reason why he is being quiet about it is because its bullshit. While you can find new 6rs OTD for under 10, a zx10 is a completely different story. You may be lucky to find a leftover for $11k but that bike will be well over $12k after all is said and done.

I'm trying to buy it right now. We'll see if it's bullshit in a few hours hopefully.

Of course. I'm not saying he's full of , but if not him, then the dealer. And if that's not the case then I guess I'm gonna buy me a ZX-10R, too.

I think they lured you into the stealership with a ridiculous number. Hope you have your lube handy

You are correct, something about the deal is too good to be true, the motorcycle might be less than $10k.. But i have a feeling he is goong to see some added "dealer fees"/freight/prep/etc.
