Is this a good deal on a bike?

I rode harleys for 10 years and decided I hate them. Is this a good deal on a street bike? Its a 2002 zx12r with 4k miles on it

Kawasaki ZX12 R/2OO2 NINJA-- Excellent Condition!!!

Yeah I thought the price was a typo. That should at least be $4k.

That ad looks like a scam. They usually post like that across multiple area CLs with the weird (very low) prices. Also the phone in the pic vs in the ad is off especially since it looks to be in Wisconsin, not Ft Myers??

Seems scammy, but then again it could be a divorce/revenge sale haha. I'm having a hard time moving my 2006 Kawasaki Vulcan Mean Streak for $4K and it's purdier than this.....so who knows maybe bikes are dropping in value.....Kawasaki's of any shape are great though.

It might not be a scam, a buddy of mine has bought some nice street bikes for cheap. Last one was a honda 1000 (not sure what kind, maybe a RCV?) in rather nice shape for $1500.

If the seller is nearby then go and check it out. (Bring a friend...or two)

Out of area phone number down and scare me in Fort Myers. This area is a conglomeration of "transplants" from around the country. My phone number is a CT area code. The price is the thing that looks scammy. I'm gonna give him a call tonight
