Bill, I bought my new/leftover '14 DL1000 Jan '17 for $6799 from a dealer here in St. Charles, Missouri.
The Adventurer model came with the hand guards, lower cowl, side cases, and a different windscreen than the standard DL1000ABS, which is what I have. In my case, they left the side cases they had installed for display on the bike and forgot to charge me for them.
The ABS models(ALL '14 1000s came with ABS) were either Desert Khaki or red, the adventurer models were Black.
To mine I added the lower cowl, handguards, ADV windscreen(later changed to the '18 1000 screen). But even with what I added my cost wasnt even close to the $9K asking price you mentioned. A week after I bought mine I saw a '14 ABS model like mine, Khaki,at the Chicago International Motorcycle show for $7500.
In my opinion, it's a wonderful motorcycle for my purposes--sport-touring, commuting, multi-state road trips, but unless you simply had to have it, $9K is too high a price for that one. I'd work on them to lower the price, or walk away.
But that's just my opinion as an owner. The other side of the coin is that it's a lot of bike for the money for a new bike with a warranty, and what else can you get for the same asking price new? YOUR call.
