My credit has always been great. A few years ago it was at 800 when our apartment complex ran it. However, since then, I have co-signed on a few of my wife's deferred student loans. I am not sure whether that will hurt my score much or not. I have always has money flowing in and out of my open credit cards and have never missed a payment. I am thinking I should be able to qualify for any promotional interest rates through Kawasaki..

Cash is the only way to go, I don't wanna get into it, but debt is the biggest problem in the world

6.45% interest rate from kawasaki
0 down
109/month 5 yr loan
bank will make around 900 something dollars for a 5yr loan. I dont mind them making that much if I have to just want to have a solid savings just in case some emerergency happen in the future.

Ok, just purchased the Ninja 300 Ebony today.. I financed with $0 down and qualified for 7.92%(5.95% promotional rate + 1.97% finance charge).. Those sneaky banks and their hidden finance charges..

Grrrr.. Still couldn't get less than 8% interest rate anywhere else..

I paid cash. It just made sense for me since I don't need to build credit at this point in my life.
