Which 900 & Price Question
Hi, I'm going to be a new rider, taking the Riders Edge course next week. I'm making the assumption that I will pass it and enjoy riding.
I've been looking at good starter bikes, and at 6'5", 290, the Vulcan 900 comes up. I've sat on them in the dealer, and it feels comfortable.
I may be getting ahead of myself, but which one do I get? I see on the Kawasaki website that they have the following deals going:
2009 Vulcan® 900 Classic was $7,499 now $6,499
2009 Vulcan® 900 Custom was $7,699 now $6,699
2009 Vulcan® 900 Custom SE was $8,099 now $7,099
2009 Vulcan® 900 Classic LT was $8,799 now $7,799
Are these good prices? I know if you look at KBB you will see that a used 2009 900 LT is $6800. Should I be able to get a better deal?
Should I go with a classic, and add the windshield, saddlebags, etc later on? I live in a part of California that sees freezing temps, and extreme heat. Lots of wind along the 58 from Tehachapi to Vegas too.
Anyone have any suggestions that could help me out?
