Advice please....

I'm looking to buy a 1000cc Blade and want some opinions on whether to buy new or slightly new?! I've been riding for 3 years and am currently on a CBF500. I know that I'm ready for a bit more power now but am unsure whether to get new or go for a 1-2 year old model. I'm also wondering wether to go for the 600RR - but I'm lazy(at times) and enjoyed the 4stroke torque when I did motoX - constantly revving the guts out of my 2 stroker was annoying!

Advice/Opinions please? I'm pretty set on a blade so don't want to be steered towards another manufacturer please (its a Honda thing I got from my dad)!!!!

Re: Advice please....

Read up on the oil burning bikes 08>.

There were issues with rusting exhausts too.

Re: Advice please....

i usually always g for a 1-2 year old model..because for one their cheaper...and you also know what your getting yourself into..e.g. oil burning problems or whatever...I have an 08 and i love it!!!!! burns very little oil....if i were you i would try to get a 09 though just to avoid the problem all together....there should be some good deals out there...
