CBR is the better price according to the NADA value + it has less miles
you should check out that C/L find I posted earlier, it's a '07 ninjette for $2k i think

I like the ZX7R. I have the 96 and it is a good bike. Not a bad price on it either. Offer 2k for it and i bet he will. I have the upper fairing fot the bike in my garage. Full micron exhaust, and front fender(has a knick in it though)

yea i asked some people for help on that and if they get a cheap 500cc bike ill buy it if i have enough cash....... but being that im a kinda new member i haven't found anyone willing to do it for me... and its my first bike so i dont mind the broken front tire fairing... and a 750 is way to big for my first bike im not that dumb lol...... but i was thinking of buying it and flipping it like you said cause i think i could get a little more than his asking price if i painted it replaced the tire fairing and maybe put some new tires or windscreen on it....

I vote for the 1995 CBR 600 F3.

Those are great bikes and a 600cc engine will be OK even if you are new to riding. Just respect the bike and your limits.

ninja 500 is gay maybe a gs500f. but as alot of people say start on a 250 but my first was and is a r6. if u know how to ride ie.shifting throttle brake and what not and take the msf (witch i have still yet to do) and then i would say a 600 is worth it cause y would u want to get a 250 and then in a few months want a bigger bike..........know what i mean

Well i can tell you, that if you are patient, you can find a better deal.

I bought, from a guy here in Houston, a 04 ZX6R '636', with only 5k miles. and i paid $4,000 cash for it. Clean title, and in hand.
