help with motocycle value.

Hey guys, as most of you know i'm looking for a nice sport bike for the spring. Today I cam upon a 2011 yamaha r6 with under 300 miles. I went to the guys house and this thing is mint!! not a single scratch. Anyway I just need help evaluating the price. He still has the receit from the dealer for over 12K and he is asking 6.5K now. I looked on kbb and other sites but im looking for real numbers on what it may be worth. Please don't flame for buying a yahama lol I would post this on a r6 forum but i didnt want to sign up for another forum. also does anyone know of any certain problems with the 2011 to look out for? Oh and he also has the extended 5 year warranty. thanks!!!!

A friend of mine has a R6 10' model and its sick!! I was originally going to buy an R6 but got a super good deal on my 600

Did you take it for a spin and run through all the gears? I would never buy a used bike without taking it for a spin, you just never know, buddy could of fucked up a gear or two. Some people just don't know how to ride ya know LOL!

But yet again, there isn't that much miles on it either ... get the V# on the bike and see if its stolen. If he has a problem with you knowing the #, walk away.

Haha yea if you fk up a bike with less than 300 miles you need to sell it. He is having a child and riding season is over so i think that is why he is selling. I went on alot of value websites and I can't find ir being worth less than 8k? I think I could get it for 6K. is that a pretty good deal? I just hate to have it sit in the garage till spring

Take it for a spin if be allows it... Also look for common damage spots.. That's oober cheap for a 2011 baby or not seems a tad too easy..

I took it for a spin roughly an hour ago,runs/ shifts perfect. like I said this thing is MINT. I may offer him 6 and see where it goes. He's also throwing in a jacket (luckily my size) and two like new helmets.

Give him what he wants for it. More than fair on the price.

Agreed. I would also say forget the free helmets. Take them and give them to a passenger if you MUST, but it is super important that you get a helmet that fits YOUR head right, not to mention you don't know the history of those helmets.

Thanks for the help guys. I already have too many helmets so i'll end up selling them. The good news is that i'm pretty sure it'll be mine. He is very very firm at 6,500 but I understand his point. I'll post up picks soon. It just stucks that I have to sit on it all winter long!!

I really wanted a Honda but this deal came along and I couldn't pass it up !
My first mods to come will be..

-sequential tail light with fender eliminator
-tank grips are a must for me to protect the tank and grip. What are a few good ones??
-get rid of the stock silver exhaust that stands out like a sore thumb! I really like the under tail on the rr but I 'll live with it
-and then just the usual odds and ends, like stands, frame sliders ext..
