    Some of us do better than others, £9995 is a great deal, hats off.....think the list price at the time was £12,700 ish. I could have had an ABS model for £250 less.....luckily I did my homework. I paid a bit more for the SP seat hump and HRC tankpad.

    I know I keep beating the same drum but the Street Triple RS for £10,300 is feeling like 2019/2020's equivalent deal of the 2015/2016's deals on the blades. Can see those prices creeping up before long.

    Hey here is a scenario. Chuffed bloke (or Woman) orders a new 2020 Fireblade for March delivery totally standard spec. Two months later realise they should have ordered the SP. They go back to the dealer for a part ex quote. Immaculate, 1200 miles on the clock. This is where (trust me I have been there many times) dealers show their true colours. I reckon a valuation of about £12800 of the base model. I can see a massive devaluation in the first year.

    Said bloke then takes £12,800 trade in only to find out the dealer has it on his forecourt for £14,995 the following day.

    I didn't get a part ex value on my bike, I just enquired about the available finance deals both Yamaha and Ducati were offering on their new models. Obviously if I take the plunge some time next year I would look at my bike being part of the deal.

    I'm not quite sure how it works to be honest..... Trading in a bike that's on PCP? What if they don't offer you enough to cover to settle the finance?? :rolleyes: they make it sound so easy though o_O

    You'd just hand it back to Hunts in that situation. They will give you the guaranteed future value aslong as it's in the right condition and mileage....that will pay off the finance exactly. You'd only trade it in against a Yam or Duc if they were offering you more than the finance settlement.

    Don't forget to offer it on the forum before you let Hunts have it back :D

    Dont forget that the standard price is around £16700 + VAT so the minute you buy it it is only worth about £16700 :(

    The cost of the bike is not only constituted by the financial outlay but obviously also from the return (or lack thereof) when we want to sell or trade it in. This makes my '19 Blade SP probably one of the most expensive bikes I've owned to date. I hope the 2020 blade is a better prospect financially.

    But at the end of the day the real question is what is the price that we are prepared to pay for our enjoyment in relation to our particular financial means?

    If we analysed every substantial purchase logically, we simply would walk away. If you can afford it in whichever way you choose to make that purchase and it brings you enjoyment during the period you have owned it then its done its job.

    Motorcycles have an added benefit that they creep under you soul and fulfill that little boy in you that loved the smell of their scalextric burning its way around their bedroom, immersed in the sense of speed and control you felt.

    We are simply older boys with bigger toys. You open your eyes, you breathe and you close them for the last time, if you have been fortunate enough in your life to enjoy your own self indulgence then its a very fortunate place to be.

    I am certainly grateful that i have the choice and freedom to waste my money in something so ingrained in my soul and whilst my eyes remain open they will continue to enjoy admiring and appreciating my current bikes and ogling at the potential future bikes and will continue to simply take my breathe away with every minute I spend in the saddle. Irrelevant justification is inevitable....

    It’s beyond logic......luckily :D:po_O

    That looks like Honda Racing in Louth to me. Dam I was just round the corner from there this morning having my Brew and a sandwich. Bet that is their initial delivery of race bikes.

    To be fair in the last picture it shows some still crated up. I think once you factor in EWC and TT bikes there will be a few more to come yet.

    A bit longer than most would think as half the bike will go on the shelf And the new tanks rads and all the other parts still have to be measured and bespoke made which isn’t a quick process and that’s without the engine work for he different regulations.
    On the last bikes they actually took power out the bike as couldn’t get it down enough.
