Just picked up a like new 2016 with 2100 miles on it yesterday for $6250 (OTD) from a car dealership. Apparently they took it in on trade for a car, and since they don't usually do motorcycles I walked out with a very good deal.

I started looking at the GSX-S a while ago but I had to sell a bike before I started looking seriously. I had a VTX 1300 and a Ducati 996 (I know, complete opposite ends of the spectrum). I sold the 996 a few weeks ago and I've been looking at more sport touring bikes instead of the GSX-S, but I was drawn back to them again. Made a couple of calls on new ones that weren't nearly as great after they added on all the fees, so I started looking used. Unfortunately my area is pretty bare, but I did find this one 5 hours away. Got them down to $5800, we split the credit card fee, and then after tax I'm bringing it home for $6250.

I'll add some better pictures after I get it out and dust it off today. It is in perfect condition and I'm ecstatic about it.

Howdy! You were wise to get the 'F' model. Everyone knows it's better than the neked.

I'm about 1.5 hours from there. I need to take it up and get a picture with the Nicky statue.


Thank you all! It's been great so far. It's a huge difference from the 996. The superbikes of old are nothing compared to the 1000s now. If only it handled as well.
