Higher Mileage 2015 possible purchase

I found a 46k mile 2015 Vstrom 650 xt for $4100 at a dealer. Has the little beak at the front and the spoke wheels but nothing else that I can tell. Seems like a decent deal but the mileage kind of worries me. I know in a car 15k per year is nothing. Maybe this bike was used to commute? Or maybe long trips? Not sure if this dealer would know the history.

This would be my second bike. Had a 2003 ninja 636 that I put 25k miles on back in 2003-2007. Also put about 3000k miles on an R6 that wasnt mine but was able to borrow often. Now Im older (41) and looking for something like an adventure bike. Seems like the Vstrom 650 would be a good fit.

That engine is just broken in, there are NUMEROUS 650's on this forum with 100K to 150K on them. That is a good price for a dealer......snatch that up, make sure any active recalls have been performed.

Hmmmmmm.....the XT comes with SW Motech luggage and racks, that bike obviously doesn't have all that and was removed by somebody. Still a helluva deal, and now you can install whatever racks and bags you prefer. No idea where you are located, you might consider filling out your profile a bit.

I have a 15XT by the way.......

I just joined the forum and Ill fill out my profile soon. Im in Texas. I figured it was an XT due to the wheels being spoked. I have been researching about these bikes for the past few days.

As long as maintenance has been done and it is well cared for, that mileage shouldn't be concerning. Make a lower offer...most dealers will come down some off asking price.

Yup spoke wheels and the beak are the dead give away for the first model year XT, but the luggage and racks are for sure missing. You are also missing the crash bars as well, I have a feeling this could be a wrecked bike......no idea why an owner would take all that off since they paid for it.
