2011 Versys tomorrow?
Tomorrow I'm heading out to hopefully pick up a new motorbike! I'm trading in a 2005 V-Strom DL1000 and have a choice between two, at 2 separate shops, 2 and 3 hours south of where I live.
They are both the same year and color (2011, red), and one is new/old stock with the factory warranty, while the other is used (looks new), has 11k miles, and comes with Kawi color matched side bags. The price for the new bike is $6,300, the used $6,000, base price + additional tax, title, & license fees. My first thought was that the used Versys would be the better deal for me; slightly cheaper, and has hard bags which I would eventually want for the new bike, but I am somewhat concerned about the relatively high mileage, and don't know what the tires look like. The new bike has less than 20 miles on it (infrequently run), but has been filled with gas and oil and stored in a warehouse and on the showroom for ~2 years. Not sure of the condition of the battery or tires on that bike after being stored that long.
Anyone with more experience then I, care to comment on these two possibilities? I've seen neither and am not sure what the dealers will give me for the Suzuki in trade once they have a chance to check it out.
