    SOLD!!


    For less than the MSRP of a new model ($11,899 MSRP, not even counting Destination + Setup + Doc Fees), you can own this very lightly used, but heavily modded 701 Supermoto. To get a new model to this level, you would need to spend another $4.7K for all these mods - plus the first dealer service with synthetic oil, which has already been completed.

    $4,593.00 Total Modifications

    Having owned BMW F650GS, F800GS, Yamaha WR250R, Beta 500RS, Ducati, Triumph, Harley, etc. I've come to the conclusion that this is the perfect sporty commuter/dual sport bike for me (I know it's a supermoto). Light enough that I can pick it up if dropped, yet heavy enough that it doesn't get blown around on the highway. I was thinking of getting a set of 21/18 wheels to be able to switch between SM and enduro modes, but frankly, these Pirelli tires (60/40 pavement/dirt) are perfect for the types of dirt roads I'm tackling these days. I can bomb down those roads faster than my risk tolerance will allow with these tires and this suspension. And on pavement - it's phemomenal. But if you want to tackle more technical trails, just pickup a pair of KTM or Husky 21/18 wheels and basically have two bikes in one.

    Selling only because my wife has been diagnosed with a medical condition that is going to eat up a large portion of my time. Also, could use this cash for the massive co-pays and deductibles that are coming!

    Garage kept. Owned by 52-year old professional. Not a stunt-riding kid. Seriously, I have never wheelied this thing. I never learned how, and can't bring myself to learn on a bike that has $17K into it! Comes with all take-off parts, two keys, and owners manual/folder.

    Other details:
    Warranty: Roughly 19 months remaining
    Mileage: 1,800+/-
    New Lowered Price: $11,400

    Bump with a few points to add:

    1) I have title in hand.
    2) I can assist with a fly/ride. Nearby airports are MHT (30 minutes) and BOS (75 minutes)
    3) I can assist with meeting a shipping company if you want to pay to ship it
    4) If the asking price is out of your range, let me know which farkles you want me to pull off, and we can work out a lower price. I’ll likely be getting another 701 or 690 in a year or two - so I wouldn’t mind keeping a few farkles on the shelf until I can get back in the saddle.
    5) My credit union has great rates on used motorcycle financing: 3.74% up to 36 months; 3.94% up to 48 months; 4.19% up to 65 months. They will finance up to 120% of NADA value, with no money down.

    $1,000 price drop bump! New price: $11,800 with everything listed above.

    If you’re thinking of a new, or near new 701, you’re not going to find one as loaded with mods as this one.

    Want a 701, but need 21/18 wheels? Sell these OEM sumo wheels (and 2 sets of tires) to a 690 or 701 owner, and use the proceeds to buy yourself the off-road wheels/tires you want.

    $11,800 still too steep for you? PM me, and we’ll talk about pulling off some mods to get the price where you need it.

    Bump and price drop to $11,700, and opening it up to downsizing trades.

    I’d like to end up with a bike in the $3K to $5K range. That way, I can pocket some cash now, and still have a bike in the garage to at least commute with for the next year or so to get through this busy stretch where I won’t get much weekend riding in.

    Not exactly sure what I’m looking for in a trade. I do know, I don’t have time to be changing the oil every few weeks, so that probably rules out a lot of high-strung, dirt-oriented bikes.

    I guess this is my wish list:
    • 2017 or newer
    • Street legal
    • Not a cruiser
    • Not a sport bike with ergos that won’t agree with my 52-year old knees and wrists!
    • $3K to $5K price range
    Here are some rides that I wouldn’t mind trying:

    CB500X or F
    Duke 390
    Svartpilen 401
    Duke 690
    MT07
    DL650 V-Strom
    CRF250L or Rally
    WR250R
    DRZ 400
    DR650
    KLR650
    Versys
    G310GS
    Himalayan
    Other?

    There’s a ton of other bikes I’d like, but not sure if we could get the cost down low enough for me. But if you’ve got a bargain - let me know what it is, and we’ll talk!

    Wish it was close to TN because I would consider trading even for my ZX-14R w/ full Akrapovic. Details in my post in the FM.

    Weekend bump.

    Deep down, you’ve always wanted a supermoto!

    Did I mention the gas mileage on this thing? I know if you’re looking at this, you couldn’t care less about gas mileage, but I was shocked at how economical this thing is at the pump!

    These were the calculations on my last three tanks:

    59.5 MPG
    60.1 MPG*
    59.7 MPG

    * Recommended strategy with your S.O.: “But honey, it gets 60 miles to the gallon. Think of the money we’ll save on gas!”

    I’ve bought a bike from this guy before. It was very well loved. Wish I could grab this one too.

    Do you still have the rally tower on the bike? How does it handle long stretches of highway?

    @dimag , yes the rally tower is still on the bike. The last pic I posted was an older one. I just wanted to show a different configuration with the fairing off and tank bag on.

    As for your question of how it does on the highway, it’s surprisingly well planted. I’ve had dual sports in the 250 - 300 pound range that get blown around by wind and tractor trailer trucks. Not this bike. I’ve done two different 4-hour tours with it with buddies on a mix of twisties and highway. We tend to stop about once per hour. I never got tired out on this. Seat Concepts seat is very comfy. Butt was never sore. Seat/peg/bars relationship is perfect for me. My knees are at about a 90 degree angle, and although I’m not sitting perfectly upright, it’s close. And speed is a non-issue. It can cruise at 80mph no problem, with more on tap. I thought that the vibes on a big thumper like this would be rough at speed, but with the second counterbalancer on this engine, it’s fine. Not as smooth as a multi-cylinder bike, but never once did it bother me - even after long stretches at speed.

    I’m still experimenting with the adjustable windshield on the fairing. Seems I like it best at its lowest level in warm weather - which puts more air below helmet and on my body. Windshield in highest position sends most of the airflow over my helmet - which will be great in cooler temps. Windshield in the middle for me is no good, as it sends air right to the center of my helmet and gives me buffeting. Buffetting?? Does one of those words mean eating at an all-you-can eat joint? If so, it probably will cause that too, but YMMV.

    More Pics:
