Seems like a really good price for a nice bike. Too bad litre bikes don't make good starters..

V-Twin liter bikes make fine starters. You wouldn't want to learn on one but if you've done riding school, are familiar with emergency maneuvering and already know the basics they're great.

Wonder what the best out the door price you can get. Or that's insanely good already?

Honda's clearout is $1,000 off CB300FA and $1,300 off CBR300R and CBR300RA.

Holeshot is charging $695 on freight/PDI alone. Heck, they harsh mark up everything up there. Go to Honda Centre, they charge less than $500 for freight, PDI, and doc if they have anything left in stock. Even Carter Honda is more reasonable than Holeshot.

Honda Centre will void PDI fees and such if you're ready to buy OTD. If you're financing a bike less deals..

I've seen a particular place charge PDI+ Doc on used bikes...
Pretty sure atleast the PDI is only applicable to new vehicles.

Went and looks like the OTD price on a non abs model is about 4200 ish.

With ABS, I think 4600, or something. Great deal, but wondering if a new bike for a new rider, is a wise decision.

Thinking I should go with a cheap 250, abuse it, etc, learn then maybe move on to something higher next season. But damn is a nice bike sexy.

I got my bike new last year when I first learned to ride. What's would not be wise about it?

Don't underestimate a 250cc bike. Contrary to what a lot of people say, I can get into a lot of trouble with my 300cc bike.

Not only that, you can run them harder, which makes it seem as though you're going as fast as the bigger bikes. Also it helps with alot of fundamentals like body positioning, leaning, aggressive cornering that wouldn't be possible for a beginner on a bigger/heavier bike aswell. I have no regrets starting off on a 300 either.

Yep, a 300 can get into excessive speeding territory on a 100 limit highway with a full on tuck. But the 300 is really ideal if you want a daily commuter, light enough to handle everyday, light enough to sling into corners, but fast enough to do an occasional trip on the highway.

If you got a tri-colour in ABS, I'd consider buying it from you next spring for $3500 give or take depending on kms and condition...

Not wise in, I might drop it, crappy shifting, and sell it under 2 years?

I agree, the 250/300cc is plenty for a beginner. And Dkaz, only 3 red non-abs models left. No clue on how many abs models though.

Definitely not bad since it has the forged wheel option as well which was hard to get at the time.

Was almost tempted to trade in my 2014 for that one haha 👌
