2012 800R Purchase Advice

A co worker is moving and is selling his (purchased new) 2012 800R with 6k miles and offered it to me for $4,000. I have a 2013 1200GS which I intend to keep. I might try to put some more aggressive tires on the 800 and use it for more rough use. Advice?

Good price for a good bike but it is just not very easy to make the street version off road worthy.

It sounds like a horrible deal - I would pass it up. By the way can you give me your co-workers name so I can contact him.

$4000 sounds like an unbelievable deal. Unless there is something known to be wrong with the bike I would say $6500 - $7000 would still be a good price.

Good Luck!
