I just got back from a guy that has an '01 (Red/Blk) with 3570 miles, comes with Scorpion alarm, tank skin, and Pit Bull stand. Original owner, manuals, all paperwork.

The damn thing is flawless/beautiful and stock. Does this price seem too high? Dealers here are asking $7500-$7700 for bikes in worse condition and they do not include any of the mentioned items.

Thanks, Justin

$7250? For another $1250.00 you can have mine. Mine is Y/B so it is faster :eyebrows:

Sad to say perf, but I think Conq & Critz nailed it. I don't know why Honda's resale value is so bad on the 929/954 models, but it appears that it is. Just put it is your local newspaper for a reasonable price and see what happens :idunno: .

I just bought an 01 with Lindemann forks, ohlins shock, attack rearsets and a jardine, 14K miles, down once at very low speed (claimed to be and looks to be under 10mph) for $5400. The price you're being asked is way too much -- if 954s are going for $6500, I wouldn't pay anything over $6000, and probably more between $5500 and $6000.

And why are 929s worth so little? They are, as of a month from now, third generation bikes in a bad economy in the winter. Note what happened to VFRs after the 02s came out -- prices dropped through the floor overnight, and are now fully $1500 below blue book. There has been some recovery in the VFR market because the 02 has not proved so popular over time, but that is not a problem in the 954 and presumably 1000 case.

Can't really go by dealer's asking price. I have a dealer close by still asking 10k +tax for an '02 954. The red/blk is cool, but it is still a used bike and an '01 at that. Offer him something in the low 6k range and tell him to call you when he comes to his senses. :eyebrows: Spring will soon bring all the '04's out and '01 values will drop even further.

I agree, I was going to sell my 929, but its a great a bike and couldnt come up with a reason to sell it. Hell, I never ride it though. I only have like 5000 miles on the 929, its in perfect condition, and when ever friends come stay for the weekend its a really easy bike for them to just jump on and go. I got offers of $7000 last summer, really good price, but I'll keep it, it looks good as a piece of furniture in my living room. :eyebrows:

I am pretty sure you can get a brand new 954RR for like 8400ish.

That 929 is probably worth like 5500ish

Hey man, if it's a clean bike and it's what you want. Go for it! Have you ever the expression "you get what you pay for"?

That price is too high!

My s/b, flawless '02 954 is f/s at $7500 with the goodies, and $7000 stock.

Good luck in your search!
