Type R FK2 vs FK8

Post by Marc75 » Sun Aug 20, 2017 5:50 pm

Dear all,

I need kind advice if Honda FK2 (type R 2015) is a worth buy . Comparing against The newer FK8, I like the FK2 but worries I might have problem selling it next time and at higher depreciation.

Any one out there that own a FK2 type R please share with me on the pro and con .

Greatly appreciate in advance

Since it might be rarer than the latest one, it might not depreciate much?

As a thought.

I have been told by people who tested in USA that the fk8r is much faster and better in handling. I would get the 8

Driven the fk2 before, pocket rocket, very fast!! But, ppl say the 8 is slightly faster.
For the new 8, there is order waiting time unless u go PI.
I believe used units for 2 are competitive now, close to depreciation of legend FD2R
The 2 cars are different and engine wise also slight difference, tuning, setup etc..
Of cos, if u buy a brand new 8, easier to sell in future, bigger cabin and rear passenger space also.

Advise, the new version fk2r and fk8r prices are a different buyer demographics from the times of FD2R, the price threshold, which is why u need a specific group of buyers..

That Type 53 looks very good. If the stock is Chinese vs Russian I would say 500-600 as a collector example.
Stock should have some proofs etc.

The sling appears to be Russian.
