I'm not seeing the value here.

I bought my 2001 CBR600 F4i in 2003 for $5k, and it's a 4-cylinder fuel injected bike. My guess is you can pick up used sportbikes for $2-3k these days.

Just don't see the point in having so many cylinders when the engine is so small. It isn't efficient. Sure, you get more power out of the small engine, but at extra expense and worse fuel economy. My 600 probably doesn't weigh much more since it's designed to be lightweight, whereas the baby Ninjas and other 250 bikes don't take weight so seriously.
