Should I pull the trigger on this one? please help!

I've been craving for a V strom for a while and missed couple of them just because I couldn't pull the trigger on time. I've just found one at a local dealer. It is 2006 V strom (no abs) with 21K miles on it. It has new inspection and tires. I have negotiated the price down from $4000 to $3600. Should I pull the trigger?

Why wouldn't you? One of the most reliable bikes made for 3600. What are your concerns?

Tell them you will take it. Then try to get the maintenance history on it, & maybe a short warranty period and jump on it now.

Six model years old and 21k...I for one would pass. Sounds like a $3 k bike best.

Depends on the type of riding it was put through. 21,00 street miles are just a start but 21,000 dirt miles could use up a bike real fast. Carl

Doesn't sound bad depending on the availability in your area and how it looks. And assuming it is the red one. Is it the 1000 or the 650?

It is a 650 and light blue. I live in rural area so it is really difficult to find one.
