Ha guys. Whilst 8 grand is indeed £3k+, you're not wrong, I'd like to still spend as little as possible and that means 3k plus a couple hundred, not thousand :)
You're not doing this right...
Apparently, if your V5 already has the output written on it, you don't need the certificate.
@PhilDAS Sub £3k I'll just stick with my SV. Personally, around £5k starts getting interesting for me.
Would like a go on a twin. Let’s see your SV again
My mate sold his 899 Panigale to buy an MT09 SP after 3 months
This £3k+ chat hurts my classic CBRs feelings. Mind you the warm weather seems to have pumped all prices up.
£3.5K goes a lot further in the winter. Maybe a little more required now but it was a sweet spot for value a few years ago. Bear in mind a small negotiation is not unheard of in motorbike sales :)
Any idea why?
I've had an MT09 (and have a Tracer 900 with the same engine now) and ridden an 899. The 899 is so much nicer to ride as a Sunday sports bike. Feels special.
Totally understand if they were after something for the commute...
Our group now only has one rider on a sports bike, we all ride MT10 / MT09 / Street Triple and he rode an MT09 SP and found it easier to ride fast than the 899 - he was continually being dropped before - bit embarrassing for him with 35bhp more on an Italian thoroughbred superbike.
Yes they do feel and sound very special but I think it was an itch he needed to scratch rather than something to live with long term. Ironically he's sold it a month before the group head over to mainland Europe on an 8 day / 2,000 mile trip incorporating Italy!
Most of our rides are 250-350 mile days - blasts of fast A and B roads and I think the idea of 8 days of them on the Panigale were enough for him to get rid
Having followed him since he got the MT09 SP he's definitely quicker and more confident
I also have an MT09 and they're a cracking all round bike once the suspension is binned and replaced, aren't many bikes that'll lose it in the real world
If the NOx levels are below the prescribed level of 0.15g/km, there’s no charge.
Well, that didn't work...
Whatever that is my diesel van has better figures for all the emissions and it's only Euro5!
Pretty sure that if I fitted the original exhaust & air filter + did one of those fuel cleaning thing, the number would be lower.
But I've got a new motorbike so I will sell the Bandit shortly.
Will MOT & get an oil change to make it easier to sell.
