Should I sell?

Yo!
A guy has offered to buy my K6 Busa for around USD$11200.00
I dont know, i was thinking if i did sell it what should i go for?
I dont like the look of the ZX14R, it may be a fast bike, but it doesnt handle as well as the busa.
I was thinking, if i do sell it, i will go to the dealer and pay a deposit for an 2008 hayabusa.
What you guyz think?

a bit nervous about it though.. its like buying fish in the sea.. there is nothing but speculation about the K8 busa. what if, its crap?
Maybe its a good thing about suzuki or a bad one, depends how you look at it, but they so hush hush, you never know till its there, Kawa's are different, they loud and in your face! WE MAKIN a ? and its gonna be ?. thats why the ZX14R had a turbo kit for it before it landed on the shop floor.
My friends has his K7 1000 for over a month now and there is nothing for it on the market coz it just landed in the states, 10-12 days ago.
Which by the way.. we tested against the ZX10R and.. you can go A B or C the ZX10R in a 1km straight shoot out will give the K7, 1 bike length. in 500meters, the K7 is ahead.

the 08 is going to just fine man. I know a few down here in the states that work for suzuki and get the informational news letter. It will be cool.. and besides you getting close to what you paid for it and if you want that 08 now is the time to do it.

its not like you going to go bike less...

no.. lol i wont.. but although i had it a short time.. its like the big daddy of bikes. The two bikes that would be hard for me sell would be my K2 1000 and the busa. dont know why.. but i wouldnt mind partin with the K6 1000 or the K5 750 (which hopefully will go this week!)
But those two..hmmm.
I also have parts on the way for the busa .
But i guess Suzuki's record for the past years have always been "IMPRESS" so i do think the K8 busa will be a blast and like next year, no one will even look at the K6/K7.

I really think the new busa is going to be amazing. Suzuki knows what they are doing and with their popularity in the states and now a new competitor they are really going to step their game up to crush the competition.

It wont be worse, except for looks perhaps

Id say get an 06 r6 track time fun for about 75% of that money.

That seems like a good offer for your bike brother. Let her go. Put the cash down on the 08. I mean it's a busa...so I wont hold it against you.

Have you ridden a 14? Just curious about your handling comment. I have friends who ride 14s and they love them (former Busa owners)

sell it too him. If you dont like the 08, I'm sure someone still has an almost new, if not entirely new 06 or 07 to sell you for less.

Just make sure you have real money before he leaves with the bike. It seems strange that someone would offer that much.

Yeah i did, i feel the handling of the busa is better than the 14, plus i cant remember where i seen a vid on two test riders comparing the two bikes who said the same thing .

After looking at it, he said he wanted it, he said he'll get back to me in a week.. and the week is almost over, if he doesnt im still happy on my K6 busa. I have parts arriving for it next week anyway.. (brake lines, PCIII, smart-tre, colored gauges,etc)

SOLD for $10200.00

It was SAD to see the new owner drive away with it, i only had the bike a short time but it was truly the BIG DADDY!
Its like a SAD love Story,
Now i have to wait and save like MAD in time for the 2008 BUSA.. hope it was worth selling the K6 for it
