would you buy the 2015 street 500 for $4k?

Let me first say sorry for double posting, but I'm trying to make a decision today if I should buy this.

Title says it all. I have a chance to buy a brand new 2015 Street 500 that someone won from a dealer but doesn't ride. Has 15 miles on it. Question is would you buy it for $4k?

This will be my first motorcycle ever and I was looking at a used sportster 883, but this looks like a steal. What do you guys think?

I'd recommend it if the bike is as advertised. The Spotster is heavier, a rougher ride (in my opinion). This bike is great for the beginner, as well as experienced riders. It truly is a joy to ride!

You think that is a good price for a 2015 500 with 15 miles?

MSRP is $6,799 And with only 15 miles on it, it's basically new. I doubt you'd talk a dealer down to $4,000 on that bike. I'd bite if you think a 500 is suitable for you.

i work at a dealership and the mark up is only a few hundred dollars if that so yes $4k for a 500 is a great price.i bought a used 750 with v&h intake and exhaust with windscreen and removable rack plus the fuel pack tuner for $7600.00 and I am an employee so ya you wont get into new /used any cheaper, especially since it could be sold for $5500 if you just sat on it and listed it again.

Curious where you work, you may have bought my bike. I did all those mods, have the takeoff parts, etc.

i probably did buy your bike , did you buy it for your daughter? here in the tampa area, i was told the owner traded it in for a sportster and complained about lag and leap ... after i bought it of course.
