I just checked the NADA guides for the R6 and was amazed with the suggested prices. It is "funny" how 2006 bikes are being sold for the same asked prices as 1996 bikes.

Im in the market so in CL alot. Its crazy how ninjas of all ages and all miles are in the 1800-2200 price range. No matter if its an 06 or an 01. So of course, I would go for the newest one with the lowest mileage.

ninja 250's hold their value very well after the initial NEW 1st buyer.......most other ninja's don't.

Confusing

He bought the Bike in Nov 07
3-08-08 he puts it up for sale
and 09-05-09 ( 1.5 years later) he reduces the price.

or is the 03-08-08 date wrong?

Sounds like the guy didn't do his research and got raped just like the dealer wanted. $17,146..... Seriously, who in there right mind pays FULL MSRP for anything let alone a bike (+ additional fees)...?

I paid $10,500 out the door for my BUSA brand new in Feb '08. Once the economy hit, I know people that bought them brand new for $9,500 most are around $10k out the door with all fees. There are deals if you shop around...

My guess is he wanted to be the first guy on the block with one and went down to the dealer willing to pay whatever he had to just to get it. If it's got a few dings from drops then he probably couldn't handle the bike and shouldn't have bought it to begin with. If the bike was perfect (like it should be with that mileage) it would be worth $8k easy if not more. A proper buy would equal about $1k a year which is really pretty good for a sportbike since BUSA's have some of the best resale values....

Hopefully he learned his lesson....
