How much is this bike worth?

I came a cross a 2006 RC51 with 3,500 miles on it. Only mod is a corbin seat and a steering damper. Seems to be in perfect condition. They are asking $7,999, but I thought that seemed a little high?

How much are these going for typically in this condition?

thanks!

3500 miles means it's been sitting a lot. In some cases, that's worse than just riding it.
There's a 2006 for sale right here on this forum that has WAY more upgrades than the one you mentioned, and it's $2,000 less!
At only about 15,000 miles and all the upgrades, it's a way better bike. As long as it checks out to an inspection that is. I don't know the seller or the bike, it's just a timely example of my point.

Priced high IMHO, but I guess that depends on your region and who you are buying from.

Is it at a dealer or a private seller?

It's at a dealer so I know they are going to price it high. Just wondering what I should be paying so I can use that for bargaining.

Thanks for the help

Even at a dealer, $6000 - 6500 max.
And make them change the oil and filter. Good chance it's been in there a loooooong time. I wouldn't trust the brake fluid or clutch fluid (both DOT4) either for the same reason.

Don't let these guys poo poo on this bike because it has ~3600 miles or so.

For a bike like that no more than 6500. And thats if you live In the high rent district like jondog

There are plenty posts on here too to let you know what to look for g/l

That's not 2006 morgan.
That's a 2003. Unless at 3750 miles they switched all the plastics and gas tank.
