I thought the seller was asking a lil much at first but then I considered the VERY low miles and how clean it appears to be!!!

its FI

linked brakes
single sided swingarm
catalytic converters
o2 sensors
cam driven cams.......mmmm.
full instrumentation

IMO '99-02 VFRs were the best vfr's.

Those VFR's are sweet! My stepbrother has one with all the hard bags. And that is some stupid low mileage on that thing!

I'd get it if I was looking for a badass sport tourer for sure

Not a bad deal. That thing has no miles on it. Thing is 98 HP, 6 speed, V4, Linked brakes, sport tourer 535# monster. I think it a good deal...

something to think about, the bike is 10 yrs old, and it may be the orig. tires, so you may wanna check them for dry rot.

I think hes wasting his money on that. Depending on what he's looking for. I think he can get something WAYYY newer for that price. Seen and 08 r6 clean title on craigslist with miner rash for $4000, he had sold it by the time I e-mailed him, but if he's happy with this tell him go for it!!!

That's apples to oranges. R6 is no sport tourer, good luck riding all day on that. This is a smokin deal on this bike
