Whats it worth ?

8 posts in this topic

Looking at a 2006 Suzuki Vinsion 500. It has 200 miles and a winch. This wheeler will be my wifes. I have a 05 700 King and like the ride. How much would the 500 be worth? Just not sure what to offer him. He isnt asking a price, he just said make me a offer. What do you guys think!!

I'd try $2500-$3000. Sounds like it should be in good condition with only 200 miles.

I'd say $4500+ if not $5000. At least that's what they're asking for them in the various classifieds. Not sure if that's what they're getting though.

Dozers latter offer would be the most reasonable as long as the machine hasn't been abused.

Keep in mind that many machines like the Vinson or the Kawi Brute Force were being marked as low as $5200 to move them off the showroom floors.

The Vinson is a good machine, but IMO when you could buy a 650 V-Twin for the same price in late '06, the selling price of the Suzuki goes down atleast another $400 from that, leaving the Vinnie with an actual selling price or value around $4800 new. Tack on 3 years and average depreciation, and you can plan on the $3400.

You have to start low and work your way up to what they will take for it.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
