Ninja 300 SE (orange), 9300 km, ABS, good tyres, broken in properly, kept undercover, recently serviced and full service history. $4000.

Most I can find cheaper than that at around $3000-$3500 have pretty short descriptions like the sellers are trying to hide something.

I have a cbr125r right now that I bought for $1700 to get a feel for riding but now it’s just boringly slow.

it depends...what country are you in? That makes a big difference if we're talking Canadian dollars, Australian dollars or US dollars..

Looks like a New Zealand flag next to "Registered".

It's going to be hard to give any advice on price unless you are from the area.

If you are satisfied with the bike and can live with what you paid for it, then it is worth it and do not worry or care about others opinions. 😉

I don't know what it is, but $4,000 seems to be the magic number for motorcycles. Doesn't matter if it's a souped-up 2010 grom or a 1980's pile of junk, $4,000 is always the asking price. I have a 2005 R6 that is set up for Super Stock with every trick in the book done to it and I would be lucky to get $3,500 for it after being whittled down from, you guessed it, $4,000.

To answer your question, Is $4,000 a fair price, I think no. I would shoot for $3,500 on the high end if it is really that clean and probably not much less than $3,000 if its age is starting to show. I have 30,000 miles on my 2014 and it still looks VERY clean with very little wear and tear. It has been garaged its entire life and most of its miles are freeway commuting, with very little canyon carving ( unfortunately ). I would be happy to get $3,500 if I sold it. The hard part is that these things are selling new for right around $5,000 ( base price ) and shooting for around half that cost is low balling, while asking for almost the base price is pretty steep, making the 3/5ths area the sweet spot ( 5,000 X .20 = 1,000 so 3/5ths of 5k is 3,000 ). This gives you a $1,000 swing between high and low between $3,500 and $2,500. Good bike = $3,500, while a beat-up one sets around $2,500 or less depending on how beat up it really is.
