Your opinion on what to offer for a 5 mo old Scrambler

Postby Parkblu » Sun Feb 26, 2017 10:49 pm

Assuming that there is a loss of value of 40-50% after 3-4 years for bikes, like mentioned elsewhere on this board, what would you assume the depreciation is after the first five months (though with under 400 miles)?

I've seen my first used Scrambler for sale, and I'm a bit at a loss how to price my offer. What's your take?

Thanks so much for your input.

What are they asking for it?
Why are they selling it?
Did it get wrecked?

Bought it ;-)

And got a great deal to boot; 20% under new: 370 mi, 5 mos old, ASC, heated grips and spoked rims (the latter I probably wouldn't have bothered with had I bought new). Couldn't find any glaring problem, so I rode her home Sunday.
