08 250 SE

Hey guys. I work with a guy who has an 08 250 SE in the green with black and white graphics. He's thinking of upgrading to the new 650 and is looking into selling the 250.

The bike has been driven by a mature (a guy in his 50s who used it as a commuter) adult for it's entire life and was flawless and meticulously cleaned and maintained, however it does have 15000 miles on it. The bike has new sprockets and chain and a new Pirelli (I think it's a Demon) rear tire.

What I'm asking is, do you guys think $3000 is too much to ask for it?

I honestly have no idea what the going rate for these things are, so any input would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Rob

Scratch that it's an 09 SE.

Doesn't look like too bad of a price based on your description. Just depends on what it's worth to you. I wouldn't be afraid of the 15k miles if it was maintained as indicated. If you can get a new '10 or '11 model for a $1000 give or take more, you might want to consider that and piece of mind (ie - warranty and all miles would be "yours") that comes with new.

Thanks for the input! I' m not buying it.

I got a ZX14 and am WAY to big for that little sucker. I just wanted get advice for my buddy.

It is a cool little bike I'll admit, but I'd look silly driving an R1.

Well I have a friend in SoCal who is 6'4" and 340lbs who owns one. He even took it to a Trackday and actually pretty good on it. It's his first bike and he loves the simple joy of riding. I'm not sure he'll step up to a bigger bike. He's not that much of a diehard. And yea, he looks pretty funny on it. But I would pity the person who assumes the bike matches the owner's personality. Sweet guy, but can be very, very nasty as well......
