A Helping Hand

I am in the market for an sv650 and have found a few options. I would like some feedback on these motorcycles from Craigslist. For example: the price I should try to get the bike for, is the bike worth looking at, etc. The four bikes are listed below. All inputs are welcome.

Re: A Helping Hand

Personally I'd go for the 2017, because it hasn't been molested, and probably has ABS.

The others were probably all crashed, judging by the mods, and are overpriced. I bought my 04N with 17k for a little over 2k 5 years ago. An 05 shouldn't command almost $4k....

The other bikes I'd personally only consider after close inspection, and under $2500.

2006 SV650 - $3800 (New Port Richey): overpriced af, no pics, probably not even worth looking at it.
17 Suzuki SV650 650 V-Twin Low Miles - $4000 (cocoa): decent price and good shape. basically a new bike for a used bike price. and seller will prolly come down to the 3700 range
Suzuki sv 650 sv650 - $2900: a ****show! like the autozone special civic... white parts have never been stock, so painted. blue frame tacky af. all the repainting points to it being crashed hard. aftermarket rearsets are $60 ebay junk. I wouldnt pay 2k for it
2005 Suzuki SV 650 - $3500: nice bike. overpriced as hell though. 3k max on a good day if you're feeling like gifting him $250.
