are these prices quoted as machine price or as OTR price?

 

just came back from my Bird Hunting from Mah, not very impressed by their customer service.

 

Saw this Red Color BB, very keen

- Plate : [email protected]

- Mileage ~ 22K km

- Tyres : Sportsmax Touring, not wore out

- Exhaust : HM MAT DJ

- Brakedisk : Nisim

- Bike Engine : Sounded normal

- Exterior : No scratches nor any minor dents

- No accessories

 

Being quoted $17500 as machine price. $19713 OTR inclusive of 2nd Party insurance, GST, Road Tax and etc.

 

Is the price reasonable?

 

Any BB riders has experienced with this owner?

e prices were bike prices.. based on e rough quotes i got when i was hunting around for a bird..

 

i tink e price u got for e FX bird doesnt sound very attractive.. e mileage is high too.. considering dat i rem u saying u want one with a low milage.. i suppose most of us clock around 20k km in a yr.. so i would presume this bike has been all around..

 

hmm.. if lets say i presume dat e salesman made up "convincingly good" story abt e previous owner being a rich bugger who owns a dozen cars n bikes.. n dat he takes gd care abt e bike n blah blah blah.. i still dun tink it tallies with e bike's mileage.. so is he a businessman who rides 50km to n from work everyday? or an expat who always goes to thailand for latenite suppers?

 

e cherry-popping experience may well e worth more than e $2-3k to u.. so skip this deal i suppose.. gd luck for ur hunting.. (i took almost 5mths :cool:)

Kunz, thanks for your kind replies and explanations.

 

Yes, precisely, i have thought of those which you mentioned yesterday. Again, i do not want to be unfair to the previous owner by typing about my presumtions.

 

I just offered a $ which i deemed is reasonable to what i see for myself physically.

 

 

Will continue my hunting.

 

Cheers!

Hi Kunz, to clock 22k for 8 mths, on the day he get the bike need to ride at least 90km everyday... or frequent long trip... rare typr of rich ppl.. ha ha no flaming:sweat:

 

for me, it was a bit rush.... the kind of risk that i already take into consideration.... and lastly... cant wait for 5 mths.

 

Nitro.... good luck in yr hunting. Let us know the outcome:goodluck:

Maroon BB

The bike is located on the 1st floor, walk in can see on the left hand side, with another black FQ BB next to it. Hmn, Maroon BB got demoted from 2nd floor to 1st floor?

Heard from the Sales, the owner is some kind of top $ earners, shall not elaborate his job scope, to be fair to him. As for me, i do not believe in Sales bullshit @ all.

 

When you want to buy car, they will bullshit previous owner is Lady female driver, whatever crap. I am only interested in the $ and condition of the bike.

 

Tyres looks reasonable, not that bald. I used my fingers to measure it. Engine sounded normal.

 

 

Sales Service

Hot weather, anyway i am used to easy wearing. I do agree Image is the thing when coming to business. However now i am customer, i am paying premiums, thus i expect some proper Sales Services.

 

Still remembered when i asked my Uncle why he bought a Jaguar instead of a Mercedes, he told me that he walked into Mercedes Showroom wearing a Singlet (With holes somemore) and with a slippers, no Sales bother to entertain him. Thus, he went for Jaguar because the Sales @ Jaguar entertained him.

well bro we aint leaving in some country where they treat all walk in customer as important.

 

Here image first then later talk buiness.

 

Anyway i got the worst expericne with Boon Siew and Hong Leong Showroom when i visited them in order to get some info on some bikes. I was totally ignored and when i enquired with them they told me that this is only for dealers to buy bike here. Not meant for walk in. Mind you i was decently dress and this is the msg they gave me? :nono:

 

anyway i did have 1 good experince with BMW. (this is my personal xperince) i know some ppl dunt agreed. I was well welcome and served and they way they treat me make me feel comfortable in buyin bikes from them,even though i knoe BMW bikes are costly. Even though i am not planning to buy anything they still want to know what i want and what kinda of rider i am. So it varies man!

 

Anyway have fun hunting. Got a good bird. Call us and join us then we fly baby:thumb:

If @ [email protected], they willing to slash by $500, probably I would end up with a Maroon Color? Just cannot resist the 3 digits No. plate.

Hi guys,

 

I used to ride a beautifull Blackbird. I've since sold off the bike but I still have a brand new clear Ventura Headlight protector in the original packaging. I want to sell it off as I don't see myself buying another Blackbird for the time being. I never got to use the cover at all other then fix the velcro. To make a long story short:

 

Brand new headlight cover going for S$30.

 

Interested riders SMS me at 92702073.

 

Thanks. Ride fast but safe.

 

Sankar

hi nitro

 

i am 25 this year so i guess i still fall in the vunerable age. No NCB yet. singapore insurance dont think take demerits points as 1 of the factor for the quotation.
