Price - Good Deal

Looking at a 2003 with 15K miles. I believe it is a 3rd owner bike. Bike appears to be stock. Seller is looking for $3900. NADA says bike is worth between 3900 (low) and $5K average. I'm curious if this applies to the real world or what I should be paying. Thanks.

That seems like a good deal. That's less than what I paid for mine with 11k last weekend. Check it over really well for evidence of repaired damage.

Thanks for the reply. Can I ask what you paid for yours?

Are you happy with it? I had a 2001 years ago so I'm wondering if it will be that much different compared to an '03.

So far....absolutely. But I just got it registered 2 days ago and only have maybe 30 miles on it. This is my first Honda, let alone RC. So....still learning it. It's very different from my Ducati.

That's great to hear. I've owned mainly Hondas, but I remember the RC being a bit more harsh to ride. I do love the sound though. I wonder if bar risers would help at all.

Hand the seller $3,200 cash and take it home....buy a hugger/undertail/brake lines (cirle one or two) with the money you saved.
