Title: KDX 200 price??
Post by: JacoM on February 26, 2015, 01:24:59 pm
I am considering a friends KDX 200, 2006 model.
Obviously with the normal wear and tear as can be expected on a dirt bike.
Engine was overhauled (piston, rings and main bearings) and suspension services and links at the rear shock replaced.
But, the engine is quite noizy - like "clunky" sound - note I have very litte experience on 2strokes

End last year I bought a RM85 for my son for R12000, which is in "as new" condition, engine starts first kick and no mechanical noizes what so ever (the aftermarket pipe makes a hell of a noize when the power kicks in - but that is a different story)

My question to the guys that bought/ sold a KDX recently = what would a fair price be for a well used 8 year old KDX?

Really all depends on physical condition. 2006 was the last year they were made and having never seen a picture of the bike I would guess you should expect to pay anything from R12k - R16k.

I paid R 5500.00 for a 2000 KDX200 a month ago mechanically  the bike is in reasonably good condition. The rear mudguard and some other plastics need replacement

R12K for an 06 KDX, are you crazy?

I paid substantially more than R16k for a mint 2005 with full fmf early last year.
It's all about who really wants one and is willing to pay handsomely.
They are good bikes with a solid reputation for cheap fun.

2006s  can go from anything  between 18 and 24k.  The kdx is a noisy motor. Personally I'd buy a ktm 200. Much better suspension .  

Another thing. Kdxs  don't sell quickly. Unless they go for a steal. My mate had a very nice bike and it sat for ages at 19k. He lost 13k on on it with everything he spent.

I Have a KDX 200 for sale it is a 2006 model, I will let it go for 13k to a dog with a box full of extra plastics etc.  Had it in the mountain kingdom over Easter and it ran better than my other KDX.
I bought the bike to fix up and sell, at this stage I don't really get to it.

We did a trip down Letele pass this weekend, My KDX , yz250, 2 x KTM 200's and a xr200!!

I had the same amount of fun as all with a bike half the price.

I would love a KTM 200 at some stage but will make sure I keep the KDX as well.

PM me!!

Jeez I can not believe how the KDX depreciated! I was seriously considering selling mine but at these prices definitely keeping it.

This is one of the most solid and reliable bikes around in my opinion.
