Is this a good price?

Local to me is a 2014 DL1000 advertised for 7500 but will take 7000. Bike has a center stand, Russel Day Long Seat, Givi trunk, Airflow screen, heated grips, and foot peg lowering brackets. Bike has just over 10,000 miles. The seat is a detracter for me but I am reading that most really like theirs. Here is a link to the add.

What would a similar ‘bone stock’ Strom go for in your area? The accessories add no value what so ever.

Thats not entirely true. The dealer may say that, but if 2 similar bikes are advertised for the same price but one of them had a lot more farkles which one would you buy? I'd buy the fully farkled bike. If the farkled bike was $500 more but had $2000 in farkles i'd still buy the farkled bike.

To each his own. Accessories are nice, but from a purchasers point of view, stock is worth more then non-stock. If I was buying s used bike, and it did not come with the oem parts that were taken off... I would offer less based on that.

I believe they do ad value. Especially if they are options a buyer would need or want.

Remind me when I ever go looking for a used bike, to never take you with me! LOL

I agree that the stock parts not being there is a detracter. There are not many V-Stroms in my area for sale. 2018 bikes are being advertised new for 9499 plus fees of course so the difference between a used 2014 and a new 2018 (with warranty) is about 3000

While you won't get your money back on accessories, bikes with good accessory packages bring more money. They also sell faster. For instance, having a Russell seat puts that bike very high on my want list!

That seems like a very good price. If you don't like the Russell seat, you can sell it for at least $350. You will need a stock seat, but those are usually around $100 or so.

You sure about that? On this very site within the last 2 weeks Ive seen 2 V2s with enough add-on accessories to fill a Cycle Gear store, yet the both owners lamented the fact that they got no calls on them.

Reminds me of the cars shows I went to in the '70. There'd be a Mustang or Camaro with enough..stuff..to fill a Jegs catalog, then a dead mint-bone stock example would pull on the lot and immediately gathered a crowd.

30-35 years later, I'd go to a "Bike Night" at one of the local sportbike hangouts, 'busas, ZX14s, GSXRs, R1s, each one had more...stuff.. than the one next to it. Chromed this, extended that, the owners standing next to their pride and joy trying to look tough. Then a pristine unmolested/unmutilated example would pull on to the lot, and all the other bikes suddenly became invisible.
For me, the best was one one of them came up, looked my bike over, and said.."Wow-- no mods on your ZRX? WANNA SELL IT?" LOL
