I'm trying to upgrade my motorcycle, and frankly I'm hoping to get significantly more by selling my current vehicle privately than what I'd receive from a dealer in trade.
The bike runs perfect, and would be great for someone learning, or who will stay in town. It goes 60+ mph no problem, but on the highway frankly it gets blown around (since it's so light) and doesn't have acceleration at high speed (if you're going 60 and wanna get up to 75 with just a turn of the throttle, you need a bigger bike). In town, it's outstanding. Very light and nimble, easy to maneuver around parking lots, gets extremely high mpg. It's a Honda, so you know it's reliable, and easy to maintain. Plus, to be honest, especially if it's your first bike, you might have an oops or two, and better to do it with an entry-level Honda than with a BMW.
Here's how I came up with price. If you buy a brand-new one from dealer today, it'll be AT LEAST $4600 out the door, with the extra charges from state and from dealer. If you pay me $2000, you'll still have to pay state fees - tax, title, registration - which should be another $300. Then $150 for new tires soon. They're fine right now, but they're 2 years old. 8000-mile servicing is coming up soon, another $150.
That brings us to $2600. $2000 cheaper than brand-new from dealer. And I'm not sure getting your beginner bike brand-new is a good idea anyway; I wish I hadn't. You'll probably want something bigger before long.
I don't have pics to post, but send me your phone # and I'll text them to you. It's had all its scheduled service, at the dealer, and I can provide records. I can't let you test-ride, obviously, but I'll take it for a spin and you can drive along and see how it performs. It's been kept in garage and/or under cover. There is no rust. There are no scrapes, never been in an accident or dropped, BUT THERE IS SOME MINOR PAINT FROM THE INSIDE OF MY GARAGE THAT GOT SMUDGED ONTO IT. It would be easy to detail - again, if it matters that much. You won't notice unless you look close.
Thanks and good luck!
