Keep my 2006 CBR600f or 2001 Blackbird??

Like the supersonic spy jet from which it got its name, the Super Blackbird delivers an afterburner kick of truly earth-shattering performance that simply takes your breath away.

Keep my 2006 CBR600f or 2001 Blackbird??

I am after peoples opinions.

I have always wanted a Blackbird and I have seen this 2001 one in the link below for sale in my local dealers.

The only trouble is I think it will be my 2006 CBR600F plus a couple of hundred pounds and I am worried that the age and mileage of the other bike compared to mine that

Hey Baggy...

It's pointless asking me mate..

this is mine..

21,000 miles isn't anything to worry about on an XX.. Just make sure the service book is up to date, and if it not, try to get the service done as part of the deal. 24K is the big service, so ask about a deal on that. My XX-5 has got 21,000 miles on it.

The 2001 model was the first to be fitted with a Catalytic converter so check that's okay - there's no real reason why it shouldn't be..

The important bit is whether you fit the bike.. they do have quite a "long" riding position. You need quite a good reach to be comfortable on them. Best thing would be to ask for a serious test ride.. not just around the block a few times. If the dealer knows you're a serious buyer, that shouldn't be a problem.

The XX isn't to everyone's taste.. but I love 'em.. oh, and Phoenix Candy Blue is the fastest colour.. :wink: :lol:

+ 1 with Rooster, would have thought yours was worth more than that.

Thanks for your feedback, think I will wait for a younger one like you say.

Iggy - yours looks amazing. :shock:

I'd wait too Baggy..

I've waited a long time for mine.. but it was worth it.

The right bike came along at the right time and at the right price.

I made my local dealer aware that I wanted an XX and had a few test rides, and he eventually made me a deal he knew I'd go for.. :wink:

I was up at my local dealer and they have an 04 plate 'bird in... sorry but I have to disagree about the blue colour, the satin black looks awesome!!!

Not saying yours doesn't by the way! :wink:

The black ones do look nice, and I would have one.. the reason I prefer the blue is that it does a better job at hiding the road crud and dirt than the black ones.. It's near impossible to keep black looking clean, especially when you're commuting everyday on it..

I like the Candy Phoenix Blue. It's quite a striking colour and stands out a bit better in traffic than the black ones.. :)

I like the Matt Black, never seen one of them before. :shock:

How much do you think my bike is worth? Its an 06 reg with 5k on the clock (see pic). I still have all the standard parts.
