How much is it worth?

I found this locally and was wondering how much you guys thought it was worth. He's asking $4650 which I think is high without many farkles, but I'm open to being corrected.

Quote:
2004 Suzuki DL-650 (V-Strom). Garage kept. Excellent condition. Removable lockable Givi hard luggage ($1000 worth). Center stand. 11k miles. Recent battery. New rear tire (Pirelli).
Also, are the Pirelli tires good for this bike? Pros/cons? Looks like they don't get good mileage at all.

Cool

Be sure to check Kelly Blue Book www.kbb.com Also check E-bay for sold prices. I just purchased an 07 with 935 miles for $5000 on E-bay. My best advice is shop around and wait for the right bike at the right price. Good luck.

I've found kbb doesn't usually represent value really well. Do they even have the option to enter the mileage for motorcycles? Ebay and craigslist are typically what I'm searching.

I found another great bike for $4200 with a LOT more farkles and less miles, but it's a plane ride away. I have been searching intensively for the past week or so, so I have an idea of what I think it's worth. I just wanted to get the boards opinion.

I paid $3350 for my 05 with 10,000 miles a month ago. Came with centerstand, crash bars, hand guards, heated grips, and a few other small things. About 3 weeks ago, I saw an 08 in the paper with 600 miles for $4900. It is still unsold. That price for the bike you are referring sounds high to me.
