Erion Pricing Questions

2001 Erion 929 20k on the clock, tear in the rear seat...all it needs is a rear seat to be perfect. Tires r rough, would need replacing....paint is good, no scratches, dents ect...assumming normal maintenance and final check of the bike, what should I expect to pay for it? Guys lookin to get 4k... deal? clear title?

is that bike carbed, or fuel injected? What are some problems if any I would run in to with a 929?

4000 is a good deal. tha'ts for sure. probably put about 500 back into with a new seat and tires.

shouldnt run into any problems other than normal wear like any other bike! The 929's are tanks! and fuel injected not carbed. 20 k aint anything for a 01 in my opinon but after a good mechanic checked it out I would talk about price then, I paid close to 6 for mine with 8k miles on the clock a year ago. In mint condition!

Normal maintenance and proper set up (springs and valves) on the suspension and 929/954's will run reliably for decades.

new tires and new seat are no big deal and easy fixes. If its mechanically sound then I say buy if not let me know I wouldnt mind having a second one.

Are you basing this on historical data?

Very True, put one on mine after 2 weeks or riding it and it MADE ALL the Difference

Historical, no, there are no 929's older then 7 years.

On actual recorded miles, yes.

now don't expect to jump on the 929 and feel like you are on a liter bike...prepare yourself to feel like you are on a gsxr750...but they handle great, are really smooth with the power, and all all around great bikes...$4k sounds like a decent price.
