1000RR for under 10 grand
Saw my first 1000RR (red/black) at Sport Cycles in Rockingham, NC as it was being prepped for delivery. Selling price was $9,998 plus TTL and a small doc. fee ... but no freight and set-up charges. OTD for a NC buyer would be around $10,400. I don't currently own a Honda, but I thought I'd pass the good word along. It was their first 1000RR to come in, but more are on the way.
Sport Cycles had a record month in March, selling 190 bikes including about 20 GSX-R1000's. If you contact them, tell them William the sports writer referred you.
By the way, rocking the 1000RR side to side from the saddle, you can really feel the additional 30 pounds over the ZX-10R which was also in stock. My initial impression of the 1000RR was a slightly longer RC51. I also thought the matte finish lowers looked a lot better in person than in photos. Any way you slice it, it's a great time to be into literbikes. The golden age is here and it can only get better (barring any dreaded government interference).
