After a while of looking through 1000cc bikes, my options ended up being either a Kawasaki ZX-10R, Yamaha YZF-R1 or Honda CBR 1000 RR Fireblade. I found good examples of all of them but either they got sold just before I had time to go check them out, they were weird coloured or they were just badly maintained/overpriced.
Then this little gem popped up from Central Finland. It didn't have a proper service history, but the PO had kept his own books about all services done. There was even a little letter from the PO telling about the bike and what he'd done to it I had seen this privately sold in the beginning of the year, then it disappeared and now appeared at a dealer's at cheaper price. I slept over the night on the matter and this morning we drove three hours North to check it out. It was as good as expected, so I bought it.
The weather didn't permit a test drive, but it fired up right away, the engine ran as it should and the throttle response was just amazing.. The tires are in OK shape, the brake and clutch fluids need to be changed soonish and the engine oil is 1 year/2000km old. The brake pads were gone but they promised to change new ones before I go pick it up next week, hopefully riding it home. Oh yeah, so it's a 2007 model with 32000km on the clock.
Here are photos taken with a potato right after signing the papers. The proof pic will follow next week once I get it home.
