To All, :shock:
I may have the oportunity to buy a 2002 V-Strom with less than 1000 miles, including the hard bags. This bike belongs to a dealer, was apparently the owners ride, never registered used his dealer plate. Two questions, what should I consider a fair deal, and is there anything I should be wary of? I'm a many year rider of cruisers looking for what the V-Strom offers. :D

As an owner of a 2002, I really love mine. However since it is an older model, I think you should get a significant price reduction, after all, the newer stroms will have the revised clutch and the 04 will have the adjustable windscreen.

Jim,

I bought mine as a Suzuki demo bike. It was used for factory escort riders during the Burgman scooter rollout. It had 2700 miles on it, was never titled and looked brand new. I paid $7500 with an extended 4 year warranty in November of 2002.

hope this helps,

Steve :D

Should I buy it

It depends on how much a new one is going for. Some guys are paying as little as 7500.00 for a new one. I would see if they will throw in an extended 4 year warranty. You might also check the Kelly Blur Book for what a 2002 is worth now. I think it is about $7000. I would also get a long test ride on it and make sure it runs great without the clutch basket vibrations. The bike should accelerate pretty smooth from as low as 2500 rpms. There will be some vibes but they should not be real bad.
