2015 vstrom XT for sale
« on: December 07, 2017, 11:00:10 »
 Morning all,
It is with a heavy heart and in all honestly still not completely convinced, that I am putting my Vstrom 650 XT up for sale.
The bike has no issues, no faults and over all is in good condition. There are 2 scrapes on the tank which are pictured below, nothing serious and to be honest I don't know how they happened.
The bike has done just 14000 miles from new and has a full service history from Suzuki.
Spec wise-
-Ravetech bash plate which comes right up to the heed bars for much better protection
- Heed/crash bars
- Handle bar rises for better comfort
- Genuine barkbuster handguards.
- Cosmo ram mount for GPS etc.
- Brand new Mitas E07 tyres

I have done trips around both France and Spain on the bike it never missed a beat, it really is a great bike.

I do have a full set of Alloy Suzuki luggage if this is of interest to the buyer we can work out some sort of deal.

Looking for 4200 to a loving forum member will be going on eBay classifieds if there is no interest here for around 4700

Thanks. A bit far for me to stray from my fireside in Devon!
Good luck with the sale.

Any advice appreciated
The sad and painful truth is that ultimately, a bike is only worth what people are willing will pay for it.  If the price is low enough, it will definitely sell.  You could get a guaranteed sale today - albeit a rock-bottom price - by going to the likes of https://webuyanybike.com (there are loads of them).

So unfortunately, there's your answer.

I just can't understand why Suzuki added that beak, it makes the bike look ridiculous, I'd have to get rid of it somehow.

Have you looked on Autotrader etc for price comparisons? They start on there for about 4k with a few dealers asking for around 4.5k. Those bikes may have less accessories but also less miles...

Yeah having trawled eBay etc. It's a good step the cheapest of the spec and plenty of less spec and older for more money.

There is loads of 10 + year old bikes for very similar money, some more.
Nothing really below 2k even for 50k mile machines that have had a much harder life than this.

As for webuyanybike they hounded me everyday for 2 weeks for it but they never were willing to go about 3k and you know full well it will get put in a shop for 5k......

Is it just a case that no one has cash anf fiance is cheap??

Don't know what else I can do (accepting I aren't going to do a no reserve 99p start on it)

It's likely to be a mixture of lots of bikes out there (ex-PCP), low PCP rates on new bikes with low deposits, and of course it's a Suzuki V-Strom, which is often over-looked.
