I'm not sure I believe the Blue Book value. I have a 2002 SVS silver with a bellypan. All else is stock. KBB says $3800. Does this sound right? Anybody else I talk to says they'd give me $2000 maybe $2500. The bike has never been dropped, garage kept, with 6500 miles. Is the street value of the bike that far off?

Sorry, KBB is BS. NADA is much closer to reality.

:)

Edit:I'm wrong again!

NADA said:
Low Retail $2,880
Average Retail $3,790
Of course, retail is what you can expect to pay at a dealer. They (NADA) don't give a trade in price, but you can bet it's substantially lower than $3790.

Edit: I did a spreadsheet on eBay prices before I bought my SV. I colllected about six months worth of data (~150 data points) and $3,802.76 was the average price for comparable SV-Ss (I looked at '01s, but it was last year).

I think $3800 is in the ballpark.
Whoever was offering you $2,000-$2,500 was trying to rob you... do a completed items search on Ebay and get an idea as to what they sell for.

There was a 2003 in Newport News for sale with 10K on it for $3500. There was a '99 with 5400 miles for $2999. I can't believe that a well kept, low/moderate mileage SV would go for less than $3000. I bought mine for $3500 with 3,200 miles in 2001 (it is a '99). I thought (and still do) that I got a steal. I guess it comes down to if it needs new tires, chain, sprockets, fork oil, clutch, valve adj, etc.

Agreed. I'd probably low-ball ya too :) but in the end you should really expect $3500+.

The problem is finding a buyer who wants "a silver 2002 sv650 in great shape". Most people you're talking to probably want "a really good deal on a motorcycle".

Before I went with blue, I would have made you an offer for 3800 or so for a silver in such condition (my first choice - before I saw the light)

3300 - 3800 is fair market value in my book.

that price seems real fair. I just bought my 02 w/ approx 6k miles for $3100.
I saw a 99 SV 650 w/ 25k in Northern VA for $3200.
