is this a good deal???? i have barely any knowledge of any of this….he said he throw in a spinner jacket, and a nice lookng helment.
Price negotiable. I reduced the price on my 06 Suzuki GS500F because I must sell it NOW. Only has 3300 miles. The pics speak for themselves, this bike can stand next to an R1 and look good, yet the gs-500 is perfect for a beginner. I had never owned a bike and this gs-500f was the perfect mix of learning/commuting/fun I paid over $6000 3300 miles ago, you win from this deal! I have made some modifications:
It has reflective pinstripes on rims (safety and looks), Blue Xenon headlight and running light, Integrated rear signals , Rear fender removed, Customized jet kit ,Aprilia Falco exhaustApril 6, 2008 at 8:18 pm #5494BenParticipant
That looks like a pretty good motorcycle, but I would stay away from the used helmet, you never know if they dropped it or anything and that can really effect the internal structure and how much it protects your head.
I’m pretty ruthless when buying motorcycles, so if I were in your situation I would offer $3200 cash and say that you can pick it up tonight. That only works though if you have the money to buy the bike in your hand. Chances are he will scoff at your offer and say that 4000 is already a good deal, at that point I would say “well, I can scrounge together an extra $300, but $3500 is my final offer and I can pick it up right now.”
At that point if he doesn’t accept I would just walk away, but like I said, I always try and get really good deals on motorcycles. I got my 2002 GS500 for $1700 when the guy was asking $2400, and I got my current bike for $3700 when the guy wanted $4300+. The key is to always be willing to walk away. For every motorcycle I buy I usually put in offers for 2-3 dozen bikes, some of them are real lowballs, others are just a few hundred less than asking price.
Anyway, that would probably be an ok deal for $4000 even, but I believe you could probably get a better price if you negotiate a little.
