Price Check - 07 Wee

Price check assistance please!

Looking at an 07 Wee with 4800 miles, currently priced at $4700. Only farkles are a Calsci windscreen and madstad bracket.

Thoughts on where I should bring this in at?

07 V-strom

last fall, I looked at a 2007 w/ 3,200 miles, NO farkles. The dealer wanted $5300 out the door ($4900 + Tax / Title Tags). I thought that was a little high and offered $5100 OTD ($ 4700 + Tax / Title / Tags). He said no and said that he could not come down at all. I was not willing to go $4900 but would have met him in the middle.
He still has it and now wants 4999 +.
Your deal does not sound all that bad to me. I would see if he would come down slightly, but if you are happy with that price, take it and run. Used Wee's are not plentiful in my area.

Good Luck / Happy Hunting

Decent price, not a steal, but fair for sure. If it's really clean, then hard to go too wrong.

I think thats a fair price, see if you can talk em down a little bit otherwise listen to what others are saying in this thread

Motorcycling is a lot like life:
What's the point if you don't enjoy the ride?

To add...

My first contact with the seller would have me asking if the price is negotiable. This would happen within the first 3 questions.

When buying something like this used. Even if I was willing to pay the full 4700, I'd visit the owner with full amount with me. Talk to the guy and try to get a feel for him a little. For me, just a relaxed chat about the bike in general and him as an owner, within minutes I'd have a pretty good idea if I can get the bike for 4200 or 4600.

Even if he says he's firm on the price, you may be able to persuade him to sway a 100 or 2. And if not, and you REALLY want it, be ready to fork out the 4700.

Good luck

Got to throw in my .02 ... but I paid 3200 for my 07 wee with 13k miles. Had a center stand, amotostuff adj. plate & givi e460, cee bailey xtra tall shield and oem handguards... and at the same time a friend purchased a very heavily farkled 07 with givi hard luggage, abs, the works with 18k miles for $3900.... but I do believe we got pretty good deals.... and yours does only have 4800 miles... if you like it, go haggle some and get it, the bike has been awesome! :mrgreen:

Trizzo, not sure where you're from.
I'm from NJ - if you don't want it please let me know and I would get it now..Great price, low mileage.
Also looking for a Wee with that price range and miles.
Anybody from Tristate area willing to sell or knows of such a bike please let me know.
Thanks.

All,

I believe Trizzo and I are looking at the same bike...but perhaps not. I'm planning to fly and ride. Seller is taking the bike in to the local zooki shop today for inspection (I'm covering).

If the deal goes through that I worked out with the seller, I will post details. I'm 100% sold on it, the seller seems awesome...but who knows, maybe the inspection will reveal that the flapjack wingnuts have lost all axial torsion, in which case, I will share what I learn. Or (and I think this is most likely), you'll be seeing my first ride report

Sorry Bigman, I think I beat you to it

For those of you who have done such a fly and ride (I'm doing 370 miles to get it), any words of wisdom? I'm talking in general, IE how to not get shafted, legal issues with interstate transactions, etc.
