I would have thought the ZX14 would be worth more than the RC390?

Expanding on this, They are nice. My wife and I were looking for a different bike for her and it came down to the RC390 and the Yamaha R3. For her use the R3 won out but we both agreed if she was going to do more performance stuff the RC390 would have gotten the nod.
I am curious about the story behind the switch though... Partly because the bike she was switching from is a 2012 ZX14R! We decided to keep it for another year to see if she will get back on it. Rheumatoid Arthritis is her reason for the switch. Pic we took for Halloween...

with my neck injury and hands being numb all the time the 14 was dangerous for me to ride...high blue book was $4000 on the 14, but they gave me $5100 for it.the 14 had 35k Miles on it, a bit more than I realized when I posted it up for sale. And as a plus, I still have all the original panels as well as a bunch of other things for it that I can now sell off! The Red panels are in mint shape if anyone would be interested in them?
The RC390 was "used" with only 150 miles on it and tail removal kit installed as well as aftermarker exhaust. so was straight up trade.....as it was what I was wanting to get if I sold bike, it worked for me!...saved me selling the 14!...didnt really think they would go for it....

went out on it today for short ride...the thing is a blast to ride!...first time in two years I have enjoyed riding a bike!....the 14 was just to much to ride for all my issues and was killing the joy of riding!...plus with all my issues I could not ride it even close to its potential.! big reality check for me to get through...but,...now maybe I'll be seen out riding a little more!....45HP is just right for me now days!...177hp not so much,lol

hmmmm . . . . . .

Me on my little baby ninja, I didn't have much trouble keeping up with you on the ZX14 lately (I thought you were just being nice to me!).

But, I had to work to keep up with you on the RC390 yesterday! Short ride to Kings Valley, but it was lots of fun!

Guess that says that the switch was the right one!!!

More fun to ride a little bike fast, that a fast bike slow

  Poor Tortured

After my Ninja 1000 got killed I rode my wife's learner bike, a 2010 Ninja 250R for like a year. I loved that bike. Riding around at 10000RPM all the time gets a bit tiring though. Small bikes can be totally fun.
