    ABS is shit on bikes.

    most likey nothing, but after a gen3 zx10 with no abs & every other bike i have its not for me. the way i ride it double the braking distance, dangerously over shooting corners with the levers just pumping back at me. when a first got one my triumph speedmaster cruiser stopped way better and that was a couch

    Even without the 10% extra I recon you saw the back of mine more often than I saw the back of your ZX10 Turbs Except for when they waved a Blue Flag at you

    If you keep trying to explain it with logic and facts you will possibly end up hurting your sanity.

    Decent, anything less than 10,000km/yr is lowish.

    Has after market (cheap) indicators and tacky blue anodised levers (probably also cheap China ones), and looks like the rear fender has been hack sawed.

    Remove the mardi-gras modifications and replace them with actual improvements and could be decent. Check for weathering/corrosion/fuzzy bolts, but they look pretty clean form the pictures, count on wheel/head stem/swingarm bearings being due. Brakes might need a rebuild. Provided the engine and gearbox is strong, all the other stuff is (relatively) small fry.

    All original fairings which is good and the yoshi will sound sweet.

    yeh i think so, it says negotiable so if you can get it for a price that starts with a "2" thats a still a good(IMO) looking modern era sports-bike that'll still go well enough to blow your skirt up occasionally if you want it to, if its a weekender and doing less than 5,000kms a year you'd get another few years out of it and its still under a 100,000. its looks straight, neat, not cop bait and you'd get second hand spares pretty easy. if it doesnt get chucked down the road or into the shrubbery it aint goin to depreciate much more. budget bike.

    same scenario when i bought my current bike and i got no regerts

    Not necessarily on this one but I never get the logic of xx kms a year being low - imo at the end of the days the kms are the kms, it doesn’t really matter how long they’ve had to rack up. Have it when people try to sell me cars ‘oh it’s 290k but that’s only xx / year’.. yeah but it’s still 290k 🤷🏽*♂️

    Still, a decent buy if you can get it under $3k for sure, $2.5k I wouldn’t bat an eyelid really. anything above 3 large and you’re probably only a few hundred away from getting something significantly fresher (on paper)
