Gut check on a prospective deal 2014 1000

Whatdya think. 2014 with about 5k on the clock.

Nice givi panniers
Crash bars
Skid plate
Bark busters

Good shape. Garaged much of life. Under a cover recently. Just under $8k. I trust the seller as being a straight shooter. Nice younger guy. Still rides it which I like. Nothing miles a machine like sitting.


Would like to know your opinion as I'm pretty hot for it, but don't want to second guess when I cool off.

Thanks

No, I think that's fair with the extras. You will love the bike.

As a starting point use kbb trade in values and add 30cents on the dollar for accessories IF you like them. Private retail is usually about 500-1000 over trade-in. Dont pay extra for stuff you wouldn't install. What he owes and what it's worth are 2 completely different numbers. Buy any vehicle without a large down payment and you end up under on the loan.

The 2018 are out and some dealers might still have 2015s. I'd negotiate a bit more. Does he have service records?

That's similar to mine and I'd like to get at least that for it if I wanted to sell. Only 5K and garaged is almost as good as new if it has been well maintained and hasn't been abused. If you like the color, even better. Might want to ask if the recall has been done...if not, just a little more hassle for you to take it in. I say go for it.

I agree with G-dub. Check to be sure recalls have been done. Besides that, the bike is awesome.30000 miles on my 2014 with zero problems. Fast, reliable, do anything bike. Did not look up the value, but sounds reasonable to me. Good luck with your decision.
