And there should be a substantial cost difference when registering a 2015 vs. a 2017

Wow that is a great price :-\  Look up Chris Mazuros. He has one and has enjoyed it for several years now. Electronic traction/abs is a very very nice thing. Wish I had that on my ZX14. Can you extend the warranty like with the Conc?

Well guys, looks like I won't be getting the Ninja 1000, at least not at this time...  :truce:

Worked out a smokin deal on a mint 100% stock 2014 VFR800 w/deluxe package with only 3k miles and got it for under $7k.  :great:  :motonoises:

Indeed Doctor, prices on these are just crazy low, sounds like too much inventory out there....  :??:

This one is a brand new 2015 and includes the side cases for $9k.  :o

My wife had her Ninja 1000 at the Nationals. White and Black with bags.
We lowered it added a Puig tinted windscreen.
Last year she rode it to Moab, UT 1285 miles in 2 days.
I was a wuss and rode the C-14.
 She Loves it and is already looking at the 2017 with the new IMU traction control. :great:

Wow Jay. Every time I pop on here, you're buying another new bike. I think it's official. You're my hero. Well actually you're wife is for allowing it.  :))

Always easier to apologize after than get approval prior IMO Cap'n...  ;) :)

I love my 2014 insurance is cheap if you get it through the dealer so check that option, I pay less than $500 for a year with Dairyland. I added a V-stream Touring windscreen and Murph's bar risers. I have had no issues with the stock seat on 700 mile days. Have to dress differently for the weather. It's quick, handles well and I pack as much, though differently than I did on my C-10. Recently changed the sprockets for better highway mileage. Now in the high 30-to mid 40 mpg range. Plenty of power to smoke unsuspecting fanboys on their Gsxr's and solid handling. No regrets on my purchase. This is my second after being hit on my first one 3 years ago.

The Ninja 1000 Kawi model is ZX1000SX. The ZX10 is ZX1000R. The DUMBASS insurance companies see ZX1000 and think they're the same bike, pretty much. The N1K is not a 205hp race replica that squids love to crash, but insurane companies don't know/care.

Like my previous post said...Kawi is trying to do something about this, like with Nationwide
