Hello! I am the proud owner of a new, 2006 ZX-10R that is Pearl Solar Yellow in color. Yeah, that's right, a new, 2006. I bought it from Cycle World of Cherry Hill, NJ on 6/29. They got it from another local dealer that went out of business and were offering it for a great price after the $2,500 rebate. Originally, I was going to get a 2008 ZX-6R, but I decided to get the ZX-10R for $700 more. What "sealed the deal" on getting the ZX-10R was when a friend of a friend let me ride his R1 a few days prior to make sure I was comfortable riding a liter-bike...I loved it. My prior riding experience has been 2-years on a 2005 Ninja 250R (put 6,100-miles on it) and the last 14-months on a 2007 Ninja 650R (put 1,500-miles on it). Since Kawasaki was offering awesome rebates on 2009 and prior year bikes, I felt it was a good time to take the next step. I logged over 120-miles on the ride home -- going through downtown Philly in order to break-in the engine before getting on the interstate. My wrists and neck are just a little bit sore, but I'll get use to that. Unfortunately, I don't get to ride much, but I look forward to riding the ZX-10R every chance I get. Take care, and ride safely!
