Not only is the idea lame, so is the execution.

I just e-mailed the guy, playing dumb about what an Erion 929 really means. I'll let y'all know how he replies.

His response:

'sorry pete, am not responsible for the paint and have no history on this bike. however, the bike is listed as a 900RE which i have been told is a designation for a 929 Erion(of course erion is hondas race team). will try to get more info for you and follow up. thx don'

Suggested new is $14,900 huh?  Now I know why I didn't get the Erion.

Oh and about the custom paint I hate it.

He was probably searching a Canadian site for his information. I can't remember exactly but I think the Canadian prices were roughly $14,300 when they were first released. And yes, the Erion paint scheme was raised over the the CBR base price by $500-600. Maci4Life can verify that...

As for the swing arm. That's hardly a sellling point but it is true, isn't it?

All in all, either this guy doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground or he is trying to scam some unsuspecting souls. Now why would he own a bike without knowing anything about it? Not the history, not the specs and not the paint. I wonder if it still has a VIN...

Some people make me shake my head in disbelief.

I'm thinking he's just some guy trying to turn stuff over to make a buck. And I'm just having fun with him. Whether the $14.9k is in US$ or Canadian, it just to goes you how much of an idiot he is.

In the U.S., the standard 929 retailed for $9,999, and the Erion was $10,999 (I owned one, remember? ).

Pete : (I owned one, remember? ).
Yeah... with a long swing arm right?

(I'll be damned if I can't find that picture here somewheres...)
