I've been wanting an adventure bike for awhile now but after sitting on a few I've figured out that I'm way too short for the big bikes like the africa twin, and Tenere 700. Today I ran across a 2007 dl650 with 48,000 km on consignment at a local dealer. I can't quite flatfoot it but I can get both toes down fairly comfortable. It has crashbars, skid plate, hand protectors, center stand, 12V cigarette lighter style plug some sort of knobby tires, rear luggage rack and hard cases. I did notice that it has a broken brake handle so I'm assuming the barkbusters were put on after that happened as they looked brand new. Overall the bike looked in good shape. Body work was good, crashbars had some scratches but nothing horrible, tires looked close to new. I didn't start it up or test drive as the weather really sucked today.
What I'm having trouble figuring out is the pricing. It's listed for $5500 Canadian. A brand new 650XAA is $12400. Wouldn't a 2007 have fallen further in price in the last 15 years or am I just out of touch with what used bikes cost these days? Is there anything specific I should be looking for if/when I go back to look at the bike? know problem areas and the such?
<EDIT> I've been researching based on my picture I took. Crashbars and sidecase mounts look to be Givi, the skidplate looks to be Cosmo, the hand protectors are barkbusters. Tires are Mitas possibly the E-07+ ENDURO TRAIL
