I want to buy one this week or next week so I'm trying to find how much I should be paying for one. I live in California and would be great if you guys can help me get a really good deal!

I just picked up my 2010 z 1000. I was able to negotiate a very good price by searching motorcycle shops on-line, and finding the lowest price (available current inventory) for that particular bike in my area. The shop that I wound up purchasing the bike from contacted the dealer with the posted ad, confirmed the bike was available for that price, and matched it on the spot. I saved a considerable amount of money off msrp. Note that I am on the opposite coast, (LI, NY) but that strategy should work. I have seen 2011 Ninja 1000's advertised here for less than 10,000 (plus the usual dealer fees).

2011 Ninja 1000 out the door $10,900 on June 2 , in Daytona Beach. Could have saved 200 more in Orlando but I didn't think it was worth the hassle or the loss of good will to the local dealership. Any issues and it's back to them in a hurry.

I too was on the cycle trader web site up to the day before my bike purchase. Many of the low ball offers in the state of Florida were BS. Ninja 1000- $9,499 went to $11,100 out the door. $9,800 went to $11,250. But left over 2010 Z's could be had, with cash money, under 10K out the door...all day long.

I guess I could have put this in my earlier post. 2010 Z 1000 (Black Spark) - Bike + dealer fees + tax + additional 1 yr of warranty + helmet = $9,750. Long Island, NY

I shop a lot and I would not pay over $10K out the door for a N1K. No extended warranty there but I would not let a shop touch my bike to begin with. I know of a 2010 Z1K dealer leftover that can be had for $8K out the door. 2011 green ones are going to be more like the N1K prices. I would pay cash and not carry collision insurance but that is me.
