KB Book has it listed under retail for $8185.00. Is it a Limited Edition or standard? It's not going to make that much of a difference.

I usually start in the middle of trade and retail and then go from there.

The bike is almost 3 years old so I wouldn't pay more than $7600-$7900.00 for it. Retail pricing is what a dealer would charge you. They have overhead and prep to pay for, a private party doesn't.

The prices I have posted are what the dealer would ask for. They are always really high. ChicagoFactory hit on why.

Agreed 100%

Offer $7200, the riding season is over and it's a Busa, that's two strikes already. Not to mention the fact that it was just restyled too so it's gonna look outdated first model year being 1999 and all.

My :2cents:

i agree with everyone. but for some reason it seems like busa's really hold their value...just what ive seen. it will be interesting to see how the new styling change effects the older ones.

Ha, I just bought an 03 Silver/Black Busa with 6k miles on it for 5,000 from a private party. The needed money like a month ago though. Clear title and all, though!!!! I think I stole it!!!!
I was looking at almost the exact same one at a dealer (same miles and year) for $7k +tx and everything. The guy was pissed when he called me afterwards!!
