Considering getting 2014 V-Strom Adventure

Hi, first post here. I'm looking at a 2014 V-Strom ABS Adventure, my first adventure bike, and want to see if this sounds like a good deal (I don't know anything about V-Stroms or their market). It has engine guards, hand guards, Enduro Guardian skid plate, hard saddle bags, fork brace, center stand, off-road pegs and new looking K60's. Looks really clean and has less than 2,700 miles. Owner is asking $5,500. What say the experts?

I'll jetison the hard bags for GL Coyote/Mosko Reckless or Mosko saddle bags. What are the hard Suzuki bags worth?

Thanks,

Dude

The price sounds right for the year. To me it all comes down to the condition and maintenance. Iíd get the VIN and ask a dealer if the stator recall has been addressed. So long as itís maintained and not beat to hell you wonít be disappointed.

Wonderful deal. I can't answer on the value of the hard bags. Oh wait....they're worth only about $100....I'll take 'em! (Ha Ha)

What is it, a 650 or a 1000?

I assume the bags are the oem "small rounded" ones, not the large angular ones? The small rounded ones are not very popular, because they are small. They are good for commuting (narrow) but not good for touring in most owners view. So not a huge resale value.

Square with angled corners (like a chamfer).

The squared ones should be sellable if you sell the brackets with them. Assume 50% of new price, maybe even less. Shipping will be a ----.
