Jay, you seem to be pretty serious about an R6 (bad choice for a newbie rider, but that’s a whole different topic) as you’ve posted this question before and several others like it.

Several questions:
1) Have you looked into insurance? Someone gave you the advice that “dealers will let you only get liability insurance”. That’s not true. If you have a loan against the bike, the lender usually requires full coverage. And insurance for a hot bike like that for an 18-yr old without motorcycle experience is going to be HIGH.
2) I didn’t really get how you were going to finance the bike. Do you already have a loan from your bank? Are you planning on putting the remaining amount on the credit card (after your down payment)? Do you plan on financing through the dealership (without a decent credit history, good luck).

It’s hard to answer a “how much for a monthly payment” question without knowing some of these intangibles.

Just some considerations. If you choose to go against the prevailing advice and get an R6, just be very careful. And carry one hell of an insurance policy.

One thought on “Buying 2008 yamaha R6…Monthly payments?”

  1. If you buy an R6 as your first bike, you are a complete moron.

    Don’t be a stupid kid. Learn to ride first. You’ll be much less embarrassed riding an in-tact GS500 than you will be standing next to a trashed R6.

    R6’s should be illegal as a first bike. So many motorcycle-ignorant people buying them thinking “well hey, it’s not a 1000”.

    You have NO idea what you’re getting yourself into.
