Hi guys. Well I use to have a BMW 335i,,had a nice tune on it,,enjoyed it for three years. Always loved the quality with the BMW. I do really like my zx..I not into high speed, I would sell fifty horses off it if I could. If your into it for more than four seconds ,your over 100 mph fast! So I just kinda ride it nice and smooth. Enjoy the extra grunt from time to time..ie, passing power.
What I like about the bimmer is the shaft drive, no messing with a chain, abs , could save your ass big time! The electronic suspension,, don't have to jack with knobs to adjust it,,,which I would only Fuk up big time! I had a shop adjust mine for my weight, 270.
And the three year warrenty.
My zx has taken a hit,,about 3k since I got it new,left over in 2009. Paid 9k for it,with a full retail trade-in on my fzr 600. I think getting out of it now before its a 3500 bike might be wise. The BMW in four years will still bring about 10k? And with the quick numbers they put together , I would be at $260 a month for four years with trade. Trade in is $6200,, BMW is $17500,loaded.. they are taking off a grand off the top, and at 3.9%. No early payoff penalty. This was just a first try on the phone. I love to car shop, and hale with the best. Keeping an eye on special rates and discounts on the K bike.
My BMW in town is getting red one in April! Loaded.. they said what one dealer can do they can also. My bday is in May! You only go around once. And $260, is next to nothing a month for me to swing. I kinda like The grey BMW! This one will be red. So we shall see.
Don't get me wrong, the zx is beautiful! Midnight blue! Race rails, zero gravity touring screen. I oggle over.it in my garage every time I see it! If I fall in love with the BMW,, it might be a go!
So possibly if anyone is.in the market for A like new zx,,with 2200 miles,,,no test ride unless cash in hand ,and you have your own insurance, and sign a test ride waver,ect ect.....see what a pita selling a bike could entail! I would sell mine for $7500 today.
In the meantime,,,I will keep researching,, and wait a few weeks till the BMW arrives...again,,I could care less if its a tick slower,,,I surly don't go out racing others on bike...I just enjoy the ride!
