CBR1000RR Question & Quandry.
Some may know that I have a brother in Houston, whom I'm trying to get on a bike. He just called me here in Riyadh, asking how much he should dole out for a 2009 Honda Repsol Edition CBR1000RR. It has 7200 miles, PCIII, Nojima exhaust w/headers, Sato rear hooks, R&G tail tidy, ASV F5 adjustable levers, HRC solo seat cowl & rear spools. Excellent condition, w/o any cosmetic blemishes, etc.
I've asked him to have it looked at by a cerified m/c mechanic.
I was a little sarcastic with him, saying that he's been telling me he wants a bike for the last 3 yrs., but that if he still hasn't bought one, what makes him think that I should believe him now? He SEEMS to be serious this time.
And since I'm so selfish that I'd want a bike to ride whenever I'm in Houston, I thought to jump on this & find out what ya'll think he should get it for, provided that it is mechanically sound.
Seller wants $ 9500.00 for the bike, whose Kelly Blue Book value is listed at $ 8800.00 And I've suggested that if it's mechanically good, to bring just CASH to the table in $ 100.00 bills.
I know it's not an RC-51 & I tried my BEST, but he did not want to buy one.
Boo hoo, poor me !
Thanks in advance,
Ride Safe & Friendly,
