I'd say $400 is about average for that year bike.

Depends on what you want. PW's are better for tiny beginner riders, IMO, as they are 2 stroke automatic bikes with alot of governing options. If i'm not mistaken, they actually have a lower seat height compared to the Honda.

Honda's have the 3-speed tranny with an auto clutch and have more low end power. The Honda, though, is also aalot more dult rider friendly than the PW. The Honda also has a much larger aftermarket for parts.

If you think your kiddo can handle the Honda, then go with it. Even when he's "out grown" it, throw a set of big bars on there and keep riding it. You can't do that as easily with the PW.
