SnoDragon pointed me in the direction of one 1st gen SV that is on sale . He raced against it and that it is a fast bike.
Was looking into it just info wise, and saw that he kept lowering his price. Price has gone down to $2K and he could deliver to Vancouver in August when he comes out for minigp racing.
Bike has lot of parts and it is set up for racing, not just track (from what I understand, there are more things that need to be done to get it race ready)
Few things I dont like about it. It has a good sized tank dent. Seller says it is just cosmetic, so I am wondering what the cost would be to get that fixed. I know it would annoy me to no end, so I would like to get it fixed. Also, he has put on Armour Bodies race fairings, but it's not complete fairings it seems. That would annoy me as well, so I would like to get that completed. I know it is just looks primarily, so call me shallow :P
It is 1st gen and S model, so I have no idea how much of a difference is there between that one and my 2nd gen N model when it comes to seating position and ergonomics. Never sat on 1st gen S model.
Would love to hear from people that have more knowledge about race bikes on what they think about the bike, price, parts and so on. Is it a deal I should jump on, or wait for something else? I have more info about the bike, so I can post what seller told me about it, if anyone is interested.
