09 VStrom 650 - used... is this a good price?

While shopping for new bikes today, the dealership mentioned he had a used Wee in stock:

2009
7000 miles
ABS

The farkles included highway pegs, crash bars, tool tube, center stand, hand guards, back seat rest, and an aftermarket wind screen.

The only thing I could see wrong from a visual inspection is the tires were original and definitely had chicken strips on the rear.

They are asking $6500... I think that is a bit high. What do you guys think?

They also had two new '14 Wee's on the showroom floor. One red and one white. Asking $7249. Good price?

Check the Kelly Blue Book and similar price guides. If your heart pulls hard enough, any price can be justified. Then there is always buyers remorse plaguing you!

Thanks notacop... I didn't know Kelly Blue Book had a motorcycle section.

According to their estimate, the dealer is asking quite a bit more. KBB is stating $4855 for a 2009 DL650A. All the farkles are worth something more than the KBB number, but that does give me a starting point figure.

Looks like I have some negotiating to do in order to get a reasonable deal.

Yeah, the used one sounds way too high to me, but it's probably priced in anticipation of a trade or so negotiating.

The price of the new one (especially being 2014 models - not leftover 2013 or 2012 even) sounds very fair to me.

2007 Wee. Blue. Bought at 5K miles. Sold at 32K+ miles. Gone but not forgotten.

2012 Wee2 Adventure. Black. Bought at 26K miles. Now 44K+. Love it!

Well.......that would be a nobrainer as to which to buy. A couple or five hundred extra and you can farkle it to your liking.

No more then $5000 for the used one. How they can even ask $6500 for 5 years old used comperig to brand new for few hundreds more.

If you can swing it, I would go for the new Vstrom 650. The price difference is not worth it. Dealers make more money on used cycles than new ones. Regardless of the low miles, the 09 is not worth more than $5k as stated above. Good luck.

Mind sharing what dealer in OK? I may be lookin for a '14 in a month or so and that seems like a really good price if thats OTD...

agree with others...Ive seen much better deals on used than that on here and other sites...
Think the new 14 is the way to go if you can swing it or look elsewhere for used... pick the. '14 you want and I may take the other lol....
