'07 DR650SE - What is it worth?
« on: December 02, 2015, 12:06:51 pm »
My wifes '07 DR650SE has been standing for a while now and after the three day trip this past weekend she has now confirmed she wants to sell it.

So my question is, what is it worth?
I have some idea what it is worth but would like to have some feedback to make sure I'm not smoking something.

Bump, what is happening to this bike?
Great news, my book 'Sniffer' has seen the light of day on Amazon Kindle!

9 year old bike worth R50,000 new should be around R20,000.
The dog that caught the car. What now?

Not so sure, Ian.
I searched for a whole year to find mine, and paid R30000 for a bike that needed a lot of work.
DR's are becoming scarce.

R 40k to R 45k.

I reckon year model on DRs (post 1996) is unimportant.

Kms, condition and farkles determine the price.

I owned 4. Still have one. Sold my '99 in Dec for R 30k, which was a good price for the buyer.

Details
'07 Suzuki DR650SE (Blue & White)
~14000 km: Low mileage, that's a plus.
PSP Bash plate: Better than nothing for sure.
PSP carry plate: Worth zip
Trailtech Vapour dashboard: What happened to the OEM speedo? If you stiil have it put it back. Maybe not if it was a grey import.
Pro Taper handle bars: Positive as long as it's not an ATV Hi. If it is stop replacing good advice with Google. And throw the bars away.
Acerbis handguards: Personal preference. But nothing that really increases the value of a bike. I prefer the Polisport as in Chopperpilot's picture.
Kappa Wind shield: Why on earth?
Airtime footpegs: Would be the first quality item from AirTime (?) I don't know them and hope they are better than the slightly flimsy stock pegs.
Heidenau k60 tyres: I would not want them not if you pay me. But then there are people who only want mileage regardless of grip on tar.
New battery: Which one? OEM Yuasa +++ as well as MotoBatt. All others ---



Annotations made above.

The biggest minus IMHO is the TrailTech Vapour which IMHO is no more than a cheap piece of electronic thrash. And the screen ::) An after market speedo also is a bit of a problem looking at the credibility of the claimed mileage. Unless you still have the OEM.

I personally would not pay much over R30k but I do agree you will be able to get a lot more. I think R37k should be fairly easy. More if you're lucky. Pretty good for a nine year old bike which sold new for R48k. Car owners weep your eyes out!
