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.

    • Whatever happened to reinhardt1?  He caught a lot of heat down here because he was so enthralled with Michelle Bachmann, but when he left Sillytown, he moved to the cooking thread, and he was very knowledgeable about cutting and preparing meat, since he was a butcher by trade.  I never spent much time in the cooking forum, but I would read reinhardt's posts occasionally.   I didn't mind Lmitout, but I've been frequenting these forums since the wild & wooly days - back when Jackpine Rob & the crew was on here.  Lmitout was pretty tame in comparison to some of those guys...   One who comes to mind went by the handle "Mariner Magnum"...                
    • Fun time at the river
    • There you go again, calling names.   "senile elders"  "brainwashed baby boomers"   "need the blue pill"     Are you serious dude?   And you wonder why folks don't take your alternative chiropractic talk seriously? 
    • some are still here, just not as busy posting.
    • The administration I referred to was not the Obama administration.  Don't edit me when quoting.  It was the HSO administration. 
    • Like I said I pop in from time to time , not like before. I do remember you rundrave stepping in and commenting on all the babble when the cooking thread crashed, you think that was the only babbling going on here? Hey, your a mod and we're just trying to cool things down, I get that.  In my opinion it came down to the cooking thread was dominating the rest and some didn't like it.  But if you want an answer on politics ,you don't have to look hard..
    • Rage, ok, thats funny. More so making light of rebels transparency regarding not being able to handle differing opinions and allowing his homeboys to throw out as much smack talk as me, only i come a little harder and sensative people struggle with their emotions.  Hence deleting a post with no rules breaking.     This whole post was a story, made up to start something. Nice troll work OP, i knew it a long time ago but played along cause it was fun but now its just a bunch of senile elders or brainwasher baby boomers that cant exchange without feeling like they were talked down to. So soft and zero passion for anything worthwhile, thats why you all need the blue pill.    
    •   Well shistter,  I had to WiKi the curry wurst so it looks like a real deal!   Currywurst (German pronunciation: [ˈkœʁiˌvʊʁst][1]) is a fast food dish of German origin consisting of steamed, then fried pork sausage (German: Bratwurst) typically cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup, a sauce based on spiced ketchup or tomato paste, itself topped with curry powder, or a ready-made ketchup seasoned with curry and other spices. The dish is often served with French fries.
