Nothing different than looking at a bike with 10,000 miles.
Oh, you mean like HARLEY owners? :laugh:It happens fairly frequently, people buy bikes and then don't use them
Thanks guys for all the replies. The bike is posted for 4600$ firm which I think is reasonable price for the mileage.Look for scratches on the bar ends / fairings / motor covers / front and tail lights (indicates a drop).
No need to ask about oil change and filters, or brake pads and rotors, etc. It's brand new, so if it hasn't been dropped, it shouldn't have any problems.
Ask if they have done any mods that you might not want.
People are paying just a little more than that for a brand new one.Thanks guys for all the replies. The bike is posted for 4600$ firm which I think is reasonable price for the mileage.

I wouldn't pay no more than $3k for a used one. You take a chance on a used one.
Easy to mistreat these machines, which new riders often do!
If YOU are happy, that's all that matters, huh.I bought a "used" R3 with 1024 miles

Wife: Babe, we need to renovate the house. The bike's gotta go.There's a used R3 on CL near me for (drum roll) $8K. Dude must've got raped at the stealership.
Agreed. Mine was $5800 OTD. At $4,600, the first owner paid the bulk of the fees. All you have to pay is tax, title, tags, insurance and go ride!You must take in consideration that IF you do purchase a "new" R3 from the dealership, you have to "pay" all those "other" costs....
TRUE. Which is exactly why I bought a new one.I think you'll have a hard time finding a used R3 for $3k. People are asking that much for clapped out ninja 250's
really? most bikes with 10,000 miles will be on their second or third set of tires, will need brakes, chain adjustment, air filter, steering head bearings checked, fluid changes, spark plugs.....shall i go on?Nothing different than looking at a bike with 10,000 miles.
