Dude, Dream on. A 2002 CBR 954 went for 6.5. So either increase your budget or reduce the CC.

Man you must be 1 rich guy or your love for bikes is unparalled...u say u have a zx6(though iam assuming u meant a ZX6R) and now you want to buy 1 more litre bike...wow..some guys have all the luck and money in the world.

BTW a friend of mine sold his 2004 R6 for about 6.3lakhs...

Hey I aint that Rich a Guy .....

The bike i am looking for is for a friend of mine who trusts my decisions
Also Ya My ZX6r is quite an old one 1996 But was kept damn well when I picked her up last year.

As for the R6that you guys just sold..........Personally i think its a very good price you got for it. However the Guy who's looking for the Bike is like 6.2 and Huge in Built.
Thats the reason I didnt really wanna go for a smaller bile like the R6 or the 600's

I guess most of the bikes here are all got in Kits.....To save on Duty..
Its very difficult to get one fully Imported with all Books and Papers in tact.

By Kits we mean that the bike is completely knocked down(meaning it is disassembled) into parts and then brought in..this way the duty paid is just about 15% and then once they arrive they r rebuilt the same way.

95% of the superbikes are brought in as baggage.

Thats the reason , people can enjoy the cheap prices.

I know of a guy who brought an aprilia down genuinely (in a crate) with all duties paid. Don't ask me the break-up, but he paid 27 lakhs for it.

hey i think you shouldnt go for it if u wanna buy a 600cc rather go for kawasaki ninja zx 6r , the model 04 of yamahar6 is an old version and giving 6 lakhs for an older model is not good or you can wait and find some other bikes also before buying check all the import duties
