Wife wants a gixxer

My wife has picked out a 2007 GSXR 600. I was wondering what is a fair price. I dont want to pay too much. Has anyone bought an 07? What did you pay? I offered 8000 out the door with a icon leather jacket and a 300 dollar helmet, they should do that right?

I dunno if they'll do that, but it sounds fair to me.

Yeah she can ride. She's still a newbie but I think she'll out grow the ninja 250 so I want to get her something she can ride for a couple years.

The guy at the dealer just called me and said he could do 8200 plus tax tag and doc. Thats without the jacket or helmet. I think he's trying to rip me off.

That sounds about right for a normal stealership.

When she loops it and gets scared, I'll buy it off you for two pesos and a can of refried beans.

I think I paid $8300 for mine. (trying to remember) 2007 600 Gixxer. That wasn't including tax/title etc.... I think offering $8000 plus the coat/helmet and tax/title is a little much. Good luck with that one

One thing you have going for you is the 08's are coming out. So you might get lucky....

I got the honda dealer to do $8500 out the door with a $400 jacket on a 07 CBR600 just like mine. Now i just have to talk her into it.
Thats a better deal than the one I got.

Well... I don't know the height of your wife but the Gixxer will be a better fit for her if she is short. Second on the list would be the CBR as far as fit is concerned. I was way more comfortable on the Gixxer even though I liked the CBR as well

I paid 9500 OTD with no extra goodies in Jan 2007. If you can get it all for 8000, I'd say its a good deal

I agree with waiting until the 08' come out. You only got a few more months or riding and about 1 month until the 08's are on the showroom floor if they arent already. You might get lucky and find someone that bought an 07 last year and wanting to upgrade now and get it for 2000 less then what you are wanting to spend. Dealerships dont usually like used bikes on the showroom so they usually push them out. Sounds like a perfect christmas present to me. It is only 3 months away.

SOLD! Thank for all the imput. I just bought the CBR. She is excited. She went and took the test for her permit and passed on the first try. Now I'm gonna sign her up for the safety class.

What are you thinking? BIKES are dangerous... buy her a nice new stove. She will be just as happy. And most importantly safe.

it took me 2 years to outgrow my 250. your wife must really be something special. maybe she can give me some riding tips after she passes her safety course.

I'm in the process of getting my 2008 GSXR 600 and I've got it for 8k out the door. I think all the stuff your trying to get with yours is a reasonable offer.
