    Buy someone else`s old race bike. you will get more for you money. The bike would already have suspension on on it.

    I would but I'm not finding many, never mind ones I think are worth the price. Not many small cc bikes for sale right now. 3 months ago may have been a different story.
    Besides, I like the idea of building another bike from a clean slate. I think if I buy new I can sell off a decent amount of the bike to help cover the costs.

    Fair enough. If it were me, I would get a ktm 390

    I know. I've been dancing around that one for a while. If I test ride one it would probably seal the deal but at that much of a price difference I can't justify it over the ninja.
    It's the same reason I didn't buy the rc8. I couldn't test it to find out if it was worth the upcharge.
