How much should I pay for 2008 R6

Hey fellas/ladies,

I am looking at a 2008 R6/Liquid Silver with 1500 kms on it. Very clean and neat. Asking $ for it is 8999.00. Is this a reasonable amount? First one so just curious. Bike looks real good though. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Re: How much should I pay for 2008 R6

Thanks for the reply. Hard to say about average price/kms. I am in Toronto, ON. I havent seen too many bikes with that low kms on it. Like i said it is a clean bike. Looks new. the dealer seems pretty reputable as well. I just dont want to get hosed on my first first bike.

That sounds actually like a pretty good price in Canada. Especially from the dealer.

I paid the same for much less of a bike a couple years ago.

But, as always, have you tried to Jew them down?

But then again, a few thousand more, and you can buy a brand new one..
