Hey guys, new here and had a question for the experts. I am currently looking to purchase a gixxer 600. Here is my dilemma.....I can get an 04 with a full yoshi exhaust and power commander for $8,800. Brand new, only 4 miles on it, full factory warranty. I can get an 05 gixxer for $8,000, bone stock of course. What would you guys do? I am thinking the 04 I should be able to get even cheaper than that, but the salesman doesn't want to budge. Any info or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Wait what color is the 04? That's real important, just remeber that Blue is the Fastest color that Gixxer makes!

Is the power commander and full exhaust already installed on the 4 mile bike?

Please tell me it is in the box, ready to be installed.

Yeah Gimpsta you might be right. But what if it is the blue one. Wouldn't it be worth it? But honestly, it might be a repo or something. And redlight said it was from a dealer, so it might not be to good to be true. But either way if it's blue I'd get it!!!

If he broke it in and dyno tuned it with those parts in the first four miles, I'd take the 04.

Thank you so much for all your input.....it is already installed on the bike, it is the blue one and now you guys are going to have me getting on the damn phone real soon! You think $8,800 is a fair price then? I was thinking of $8700, but if it is really worth it, I will pay the $8,800. It is from a dealer, so the only thing I could think of is, everyone is buying the 05's so they had to put a few extras on it to make it enticing? I don't know......thanks again!

8,800 sounds ok, I paid 7,190 otd for my 05 and it was brand new. . . . . had to wait a day to have them take it out of the crate.

Yeah your right. But that only happens on the Blue color model.

You can only get the black/orange in '04. Why would you want anything else?


Seriously, though, I'd go for the brand new one. You can probably get the color you want, and for 800 bucks, you can just about get a full system with power commander. If anything you can get a slip on and a PC and maybe sprockets.

Dude, big mistake go with the new 05' Gixxer that way, it's better to be safe than sorry and you'll get a better value for your bike if you ever decided to sell it later.
