Hey guys, I tried searching the forum with an answer to this and was surprised I didn't find a thread on it. Please let me know if there is one. I am looking at buying an R6 and saw an ad on one, the guy says it has been dropped with very minor damages. He said it "has just been dropped in the garage or something" which worried me. Asking 5500, says he can go down to 4800. Thoughts? http://boulder.craigslist.org/mcy/4405430045.html

well, first of all, that is an R6s, which are inherently less valuable than the R6, but still solid bikes as I understand.
KBB says $4,360.

Granted KBB isn't always realistic, but it should put you in the ballpark
For reference, I bought my 08 R6 (non "S") a year ago (and it had also been tipped over in the garage, with very very minimal plastic damage) for $5,200. The guy was asking around $6k

This is the second time I have thought it was an R6 and it was an R6s. Can someone explain to a noob how to notice this?

also, the "Raven" is just the black paint scheme. Don't let him try to tell you its better than the "regular" R6

2006 R6 s


2006 R6


Also note that the 2005 and earlier R6 looks just like the 2006 and up R6s
2006 and 2007 look exactly the same and 2008 through 2013 look the same but are very slightly different from the 06-07

after 2005 the old r6 became the r6s

and 4k if it was in good condition and nothing wrong with it

5k+ is getting into 2009+ territory

Wait, what is the difference? The writing is but all the R6 ravens have different writing on them.

If that is an '06 it is an R6s with R6 body panels. If it is an '05 which is what the ad says, then it is an R6.

Raven's are not special editions... they just aren't.

What I do notice about the bike in the ad is that it has inverted forks. On that body style (03-05 R6, 06-09 R6s) only the '05 R6 had inverted forks. Could be modified significantly, but my money is on 2005 R6. $4900 is a bit much, should be in the $3500-$4500 range. KBB says $3900 NADA says $4900.
