Doesn't this just make you Sick....

2014 Suzuki V-Strom 650 ABS Adventure Black

When I bought my '12 adventure I got it at the end of '12 so I thought I got a good deal with OTD price of $11,200. When I traded it this past summer for the '14 1000 I got $5700 on trade with quite a few add-ons and 15,000 miles.....

No matter who says what about these bikes, it's a shame they don't keep their value as they should!! They are great bikes....

Garage......

11000 seems high. I paid 7500 for a new 13 base model in September. It's the off season for bikes so I'm sure dealers are desperate to move some.

There's one for sale on another forum, 2012 with 19,000 miles and some nice add on's. Something like $4800 is the asking price. No one has jumped on this deal yet, which is surprising.
Leftover 2014's, can be had for $7500, which is a pretty decent deal, but I don't believe the 650's fall in the 0% financing.

It's been my experience that unless you are selling to an individual, you won't get more than what the "book" says. You are better off stripping it when you trade. On the other hand, individuals see the value in the "extras" but still don't expect more than 35% of what you paid for them. Do you love the new bike? I just lost my '12 650 Adventure and I'm debating what to get to replace it. Can't decide between the 650 or 1000 and if the difference in price is worth the $. I've not ridden the 1000 yet...

The main reason I made the switch was the power, or lack there of in the 650. When your fully loaded and twist the throttle it has Geo Metro power......another words, non existent. I did buy the 650 for a 5000 mile trip and it did great, I was very happy with everything else about the bike, but the 1000 fills my power needs nicely. Yes there are more powerful bikes with more amenities out there but for the price, especially now, you can't go wrong. I regret nothing........the 1000 is an awesome bike.

Hence the post.......What a shame. I feel these bikes are worth every dollar you pay for them, just wish they wouldn't drop off in value so fast.....

It's Mellow's bike in Texas and is currently at $5800. I know him and I can guarantee the bike is flawless. I'd buy it but it would cost me a plane ticket and 3 days off work to ride it home. Someone should definitely buy that bike from him soon... they would be VERY HAPPY!!!

I paid just under 8k out the door for my 2014 650A. Of course it was a bit used...it had 00001 miles on it. I did fly to Pittsburgh to pick it up but I thought it was worth the travel cost. There is a shop in the South that has some really hot deals going on right now. There is a recent thread where a member is trying to decide whether to jump on a super Tenere for under 8k. There are deals to be had if you will travel to get it.

The Kelley Blue Book for your zip code shows $3770 trade in value for the base model DL650 in good condition. What they gave you seems fair as far as a trade in goes. Retail for the base model at the dealer shows $5480. Of course, your Adventure model will be higher than these base model prices.

Selling directly to an individual yields more money, but the wait and bother is yours. Some states also discount the sales tax when the old vehicle is traded in.

"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
