I paid 2250 for my 07 EX500 with 7k miles, which while not a direct comparison, gives you some haggle room I think. Is gear included in your budget?
Hey I read the stickies and I'm looking for the best bang-for-the-buck bike.
Dream bike: F4i but it's impossible to find one for under 3k and I feel like I'm not experienced enough for the inline-4 600cc SS.
My budget - $2,000. Preferably under $1500 as this is my first bike.
I've been eye-balling a lot of ninja 500r's on craigslist. Seems to be the best value.
Is this is a good deal? '94 Ninja 500r with 22k miles for $1500. I'm trying to get him down to $1300. Everything seems to be in working order with no signs of being laid down also has a Hance and Vines exhaust but I'm not really into that.
I'd consider expanding my budget to something under $3000 for a Ninja 650r or SV650. Think it's worth shelling out the extra dough? I heard the ninja 500's really don't depreciate, is that true?
Thanks in advance for the help
P.S. just a college kid using it for commuting and various other stuff. Not a ton of highway use.
That was joke, but no gear is not considered part of the bike. I'll buy the gear after I buy the bike.
Thanks - that's really good to know about the 2nd gens I'll definitely make sure it's 2nd.
So if he sticks to his guns at $1500 - would you guys walk away? Would resell in a year or two come close to $1500? Also, the bike is not inspected (he says it expired in June of this year). I have no reason not to believe it would pass inspection. Everything looks fine. 22k miles in the bike's 20 year existence means it was really lightly ridden, right?
