If you are looking for a bike in your area, especially a 2014, its highly unlikely you will find one unless you don't care about its condition.
For me, it took 6 months of searching to find one with low miles & I had to buy from a guy in Florida & pay $600 to have it delivered rather than putting on 1500 miles - I was lucky, the owner was meticulous & honest.
I am selling a 2016 but I believe we spoke by email & my bike was too much money - at $9500-8500 it has only 1800 miles, all my riding gear you can sell, $4k in upgrades & all the near new stock parts.
There are two 2014's on Cycletrader - I personally wouldn't buy a 14, 15 or 16*.
This 2016 below is a great deal at $7800 & 7000 miles here in Orange County - because the guy has already changed the pipes to Vance & Hines (too noisy), added the Fender Eliminator & the bike looks clean plus it might be owned by a Credit Union.
Bottom Line; a lot of children buy the Z1000 new & realise its a Man's Motorcycle with differences like unbelievable power & torgue with unique handling due to the short wheelbase plus its natural beauty, all attributes that make it a Cult Bike, in all years of Production.
So after a few miles of OMG Ownership they sell the bike.
With low miles.
But this is the type of deal you are looking for; a Cult Bike, with low miles, in perfect condition, at a price you can afford.
You are probably going to have to buy out of state, to get the needle in the haystack.
It took me 6 months & fortunately I found the ad within 2 hours of the guy posting in Florida. I bought it in January & there was no way I was going to ride it back to CA during rainy hurricane season of February.
Owning a Z is a Privilege, you are headed in the right direction...
Selling my beloved 2012 Z1000 in candy burned orange color and has 8,815 miles Bike is a true head turner and I got a lot of compliments for it. Has fairly low mileages and it is in excellent cosmetically and mechanically ,there only one tiny bit of chip on tank.I do have the factory touch up...
