Looking seriously at a 2001 RC51 with no mods and very clean, 4700 miles. What would you all consider a fair price? I am not looking to steal something but just want I price that I should feel good about.
bikes owned=Honda F4; R1
used to do track days a bit

The dealer is just trying to make a profit on the sale.
After all, that's what businesses do.
Yeah, Sub, you're right about that! Out of curiosity I checked the KBB (Kelly Blue Book) trade-in value, good condition, and it was a measly $4090. With KBB retail being $5940, the dealer clears $1850. A more realistic (private sale) value would be an average between trade-in and retail values, which equals $5015 (almost exactly the $5k value we all seem to agree on).
