1996 Katana GSX-600 $1500. New tires and battery. 15k miles. "ready to ride". I need something to ride to work 7 miles one-way because gas is killing me in my truck. It would be my second motorcycle. I used to have a 1995 Kawi Ninja EX500R a few years ago. I'm not looking for some ridiculous sportbike to kill myself on. I'm 6'3 200lbs. It's going to be a commuter/weekend errand mobile. Not getting it to impress chicks. Don't care what the guy on the GSXR-1000 with the backwards upside down visor and flip flops thinks about me riding a Katana. I understand the Katanas sit you upright slightly more than a sportbike and that these are considered sport/tour bikes. Opinions? I miss having a bike and would love to save $$$ on gas. Questions: What kind of MPG can I expect? What kind of maintenance $$$ can I expect? (brakes/tuneups/etc) Are Katanas semi reliable? What are my insurance options in Texas? Thanks in advance. Now I need to find $1500. Don't really wanna put it on a credit card. It's 30 miles away so I'm gonna try and go take a look at it on Friday.
