Thinking with damage to the ignition, scratches on the fairings and throughout, it was maybe stolen and dropped. I couldn't see paying that much... not without thoroughly going through it and getting repair estimates. Kelley Blue Book puts it at $6,580 trade in value... if it was in good condition.
I have fixed downed bikes before but being that this is a newer bike it will cost more to fix. If I can get this thing for really cheap I might do it. I think it will really depend on what the title says and how cheap he will let it go.
Finally talked to the guy and it was recovered by a impound company. They said this is how they got the bike. As soon as he said that I just said never mind. God only knows what the original owner did to this thing before it was impounded. It was not stolen they said and it was a clean title. So you know the owner just beat the **** out of it till they got it. Explains why it was so beat up. I just wondering if he put something in the tank to mess up the motor. Anyway I said pass on this.
