On Ebay? That's to much. It will not sell. Plus they are adding a doc fee (50) and used bike prep (100).

$4K, Yes. $5150, no.

Are you BUYING it? If not, why not about what is or is not worth.
It is the BUY IT NOW price anyway.

And it is too NOT to.

DA-AMN!

Seriously though, I don't keep up with the Versys market, but that looks like a nice clean bike, with some upgrades... exhaust, sw motech luggage mounts, sw motech engine guard thingy, etc. IF you want all those things, and were to add them to a stock bike after purchase anyway, then I don't see how that price is out of line. It's not like we're talking huge money here. I learned a long time ago that you generally regret it when you let a few hundred one way or another stand between you and what your heart desires. I also learned a long time ago to not place value on what another's wants. It's his want, not mine. I spend my money my way, and you spend your money your way.

Besides, if I were local to the bike, and were in the market for a nice used Versys, I'd just motor on down to the dealer and see what sort of deal I could strike. If $4995 is their BIN price, then that's their "sticker price". Probably deal off of that a bit locally, just like most used bikes at a dealership. Prolly pick it up for $4500. Maybe less on a good day.

Damn! Almost makes me wish I was in TX!

Go offer him cash. He has had on the floor for awhile and I'm sure he would like to move it.
