No way r u gonna get a F4i for 3 lacs !!
In fact you might not even get a decent CBR 600 F3 for that amount.
You'll have to settle for a 12 yr old CBR 600 F2.
Or may be a slightly younger 400 cc bike but with half the power as compared to a 600 (ie 55 bhp vs 100)

A rough price range of the CBR 600 series in Mumbai.
1987-1991 - CBR 600 F1 (hurricane) - 2 - 2.5 lacs
92-94 CBR F2 -> 3 - 3.5 lacs
95-98 CBR F3 -> 4 - 4.5 lacs
99-01 CBR F4 -> 5 - 5.5 lacs
02-04 CBR F4i/RR -> 6 - 6.5 lacs
New CBR F4i/RR -> 7 - 7.5 lacs.
Of course these are rounded off and simplified ballpark figures and the final cost depends largely on the overall condition of the bike and the aftermarket extras.
I believe bikes in the south are slightly cheaper than in Mumbai,
The reason, I presume, is that the customs and RTO guys of the south are happier with smaller bribes as compared to their counterparts in Maharashtra.

I am surprised to know 8-10 year old CBR keeps 1/2 value !!!! Don't these bikes depreciate like cars ?
