Not sure what your "standard" comparable is, but all 2004 model year RCs were/are NH editions so unless it was a low mileage, garage/museum kept piece, I wouldn't pay that much of a premium for one (YMMV, of course).
You'll probably find some high NH asking prices on clean ones but there'll be a handful of "average" NH examples around that can be purchased at a fair price.
Yes, Cobra90GT, you have listed the one I am looking at. I just sold two of my TRIUMPHs and have some cash for a different motorcycle. I have been riding, building and racing Vintage TRIUMPH motorcycles for 37 years and would like to try a "modern" classic motorcycle.
I would like to get and original RC51 since I doubt motorcycle will depreciate at all.
Wow 1 owner, 9K miles ... seems like a real good one to me.
Seller having exactly ONE feedback would concern me. Can you go look at it?
If his description is accurate, it's worth the $6K Buy It Now, in my opinion ... even better at $5500 I think I'd Buy It Now and just be prepared to NOT pay when you go to pick it up if there's anything not up to snuff.
Weird, I tried searching for this bike when you originally posted, as I'm in Gainesville FL about 2 hours north of Orlando, and I couldn't find it by searching. This may be in your favor, price-wise.
I have now had my 04 RC51 for three weeks and ridden it about 800 miles. I commute 24 miles to work and really enjoy the motorcycle. I am noticing one problem: It appears, despite my best efforts, that the motorcycle tends to want to run about 15 mph above the posted speed limit. Do others have this problem?
Yes, I am enjoying this motorcycle even more than my 1974 850 Norton Commando.
