Howdy all....my itch to get back on the street had gotten the better of me. I'm looking very hard at a showroom condition 2004. It has a hair over 1300 miles on it; completely stock. Hasn't even had it's first service yet. Price is $8000 which I know is considerably higher than book, but it seems premium RC's are commanding a price. Am I right or is this too high?

Thanks all!!

I paid $7000. for a mint '03 with accessories and only 1200 miles on it, just last year. I say be a bit more patient, sounds high.

I paid 7,000 May09 for my Nicky Hayden new with crate damage. Too expensive to replace all body parts so put on Konica body kit. I probably paid too much, but there is nothing like an RC!

If the oil has not been changed yet I would stay away. Even with low miles the oil should be changed minimum of once a year. If it has never been serviced the oil is 5 years old and you have the chance that the seals have gone bad, along with problems internial with the engine.
