Default Hello, Future F4i owner?

Hello there Honda owners. I have been looking for a bike off and on and have come across one near me. I figured I would post the bike here and see what you all think of it and the price. This is the one I am looking at currently, any opinions are greatly appreciated. Looking forward to becoming an owner!



Here is the descripton of the bike on the site.

This one has some light 'road-rash' but runs out good, has new chain and sprokets, good tires and 18,870 miles. The owner has a new baby in the house and wants to free up some cash...$4195.00.

Little high IMO. I think I over paid for mine ($4000) and it is exactly like that one but with 12K miles. If you can get it for under $4000 I would go for it. But at the end of the day it is only $200 more...really your decision.

Theres my 2 cents.

It's worth no more than $3500.

bike looks nice but the price is too high. i bought a 03 f4i with 6600 miles for $3500 with little "road rash" about a month back. so try to get it close to 3500 if not under

the thing with the F4i's is if you're patient and look hard enough you can get a great bike for a steal. I paid 4500 for an 04 but it only had 850 miles on it, so it was basically brand new. I think for a bike with high(er) mileage and 'road rash' anything over 4k is too much..

You can get a much better deal than that from a private seller. Stay away from dealers.

Also you would have to consider replacing the dented exhaust pipe ... could be costly depending on where you get it done.

Only chance you have now is finding someone who really needs the money for some reason and then jew him down. Basically go douchebag and screw some poor slob, who also happens to be a fellow biker, out of what he needs the most at that time, cash. Or wait till the end of the season and try to swoop in when the prices go back down due to people not wanting to store them.

+1 even though I did grab one with 18k, no scraches, for 3300 just a week ago.

Look into it. The tail pipe, why's it dented? Look at the fairings? Have they been resprayed? Where are the front turn signals. I'd try and low ball em at 3300. and then pay no more than 3750.
