Default Potential New 2006 CBR600RR Owner

Hi guys,

I'm going to see a 2006 CBR600RR later today, as my first Big Bike.

I've been riding a 2007 125cc Varadero for the past year and a half, and now it is time to hop on something bigger.

The only thing that worries me slightly is that the bike has 30k miles, should I try and find something lower?

The pics seem to show the bike is pristine, but I guess we shall see in person later today!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated on questions to ask.

Welcome.
If the bike has been ared for 30k is nothing to worry about. There are tons of bikes on here with plenty more.

It has two owners. The first rode it and commuted for 27k and the current owner used it as a track and weekend bike for the past 3k, which is the bit that worries me.

Just got back from seeing it. It is in pristine condition to be fair. No issues at all, other than a slightly cracked fairing on the left indicator where it was dropped on gravel. I planned to change the fairings anyway, so that doesn't bother me much

Decided to turn it down. The fairings don't appear to be originals, and it has been ridden on the track. Which I think leaves too many question marks around it

the 600RR is probably the only modern bike with no recalls mate....these and trhe f4is enjoy tremendous reputation for build quality and longevity. A few trackdays not gonna mean a destroyed engine or something. Anyways, hope you find soemthign better, remember you should be looking at 2007-2008, the best 600RR, end of story...

I'm going to see it again on Sunday. There was an 11k option with the Movistar fairings locally, but it sold before I could go and see it. So my only current option is the 30k one

If I can get a very good deal on it, I might go for it. Aiming for 2,200 to factor in the expense of new tires.
