Just a few various marketplace searches show K-pipes here and there in the 1K range used with a few miles on them. If your looking to get one as a "toy" and/ as a second bike I would defiantly look for a used one. I have no doubt they can take miles with proper maintenance... And working on these things is about as easy as it gets. Ether try to find one that has obviously been cared for, and in mint condition with a few thousand miles, or one with less than a thousand that looks like it fell over a few times, like the one I just got. Being winter in my state helps the buyer big time... All motorcycle prices go back up at least $500 when the snow goes away. I really think that their style, look, feel, price brings in a buyer, who quickly wants more than what it can offer. I also wouldn't spend more than "trade in" value on these as they obviously don't have much resale value because new ones are only a bit more, and those without cash in hand can just finance it from the dealer. So far I have been very happy with all my Kymco stuff. I am quickly becoming a fan. Hopefully my older Honda ATV's will never die but if I did need another I would probably take a good hard look at the Kymco stuff, compare and contrast prices etc. Being a Honda guy it might be a tough sell but well worth the look.
