Hey, I'm looking to get a street bike and a friend just offered to sell me his 2001 Suzuki SV650S for $3000. It has 19,xxx miles, minor body wear (small dent in tank and some scratches), clean title, K&N intake, and some accessories. Kelly Blue Book on it is $2,520 trade in and $3685 retail, which averages $3100. Do you guys think this is a good deal? It's my first bike.

I'd say look around some more. Those minor imperfections and high mileage might detract your resell value later, as well as make your baby feel "used." Plus price seems VERY HIGH for the given condition of the bike. I have 02 SV650, had 820 miles when I bought it few months ago, and I certainly think you can get a better deal.

Either that, or start haggling the price...

After-all, what are friends for if you can't screw them a bit, hey?
