Does that sound like to much. My friend bought an 06 EX-500 for that, its got close to 4k miles on it and has been dropped and the belly pan and tail section are cracked. I thought he paid way to much but he thinks he got an awesome deal. What do you think.

and why would you buy that when you could easily buy a nice sv650 for 3600.....

If it was in pristine condition, then I would say $3,600 maybe.

Make sure your friend isn't close to any sharp objects if you decide to show him this thread.

in all honesty, he should have paid like $3k for the bike.

It's a three year old bike that originally came out 22 years go.... and they haven't changed that much.

thats a bad reason

I bought a 35 year old motorcycle and have dumped hundreds into it. Why? Because I wanted to. Is that a bad reason?

You lowered the performance of your SV by putting a chopped can on it. Why? Because you wanted to.

You built what others call an ugly motorycle. Why? Because you wanted to.

See a pattern here? It's up to the owner, not the public.

Why did you spend as much in mods and time as you did on an SV rather than buy a bike that more closely matched what you wanted out of the box?

Basically no two people want the same thing, sounds like the guy with 500 got what HE wanted.

My local shop has a similar bike for a similar price, It is in good shape,m but they are having trouble selling it, kind of an orphan size.

I just picked one up too for my wife. Paid just a little less for an 07 but it has more miles. Tried to talk her into a SV but she wanted something a little smaller. I think she was right.

You left your keys up on the table. You wanted to :)

I dont know about prices where you live, but here in SD I have seen clean 500's run from 2700 to 3200. I do think he paid too much, the demand for the 500's are not too high so the price for a used is kept fairly low from what you would expect.

I have never been too big a fan of the 500s due to the resale values and lack of demand compared to the sv650 and the ninja 250. But kawi does make the bike for a reason. eh, just my 2 cents.
