Question Anyone in Winston Salem NC to check out a 919?

Is anyone local to Winston Salem? Can you find the time to scope a black 02 919 Honda Motorcycles of WS has for sale?

http://www.hondaws.com/new_vehicle_d...711&pov=997343

From all I've seen from the pics it looks kind of dirty - not sure if its neglect or just needs a wash.

Can anyone take a look and report back here?

H of W-S is known to be a little HIGH (where's the smiley smokin' a doobie when I need him...) on their price point. I'll see what those guys are willing to do.

Yes, price is definitely high - you can almost get an 06 for what they are asking from what I've seen. I guess they are tryiong to pay off the new showroom...

I'm just starting to look, but I like the matte black on the 02-03 919s. Thanks for checking it out.

Yeah, painting the bike is not an issue, but the lower price for a 919 helps.

Right

Think of the 919 as the open-class sportbike with tons of attitude—and its sleeves rolled up.

Just ask Honda's race mechanics—it's hands-down the favorite ride on their day off.

dhy has brand new(07) 9er for $6600, so your only looking at 1500 difference between new and 5yr old + milage, so,yea i would think you could pick that 02 up for a lot,lot less. oh,and dhy is not known for low prices either.

Yeah, let this one go Saki.

It's got a seat, windscreen & mirrors (not listed).
I got my 02 from a private party sale (craigslist) 2 years ago for $4000.
It was all stock + the same mirrors as this one & a PCIII.

There are better 02s out there for less. (the only issue is whether or not they're for sale)

Thanks. $5k is definitely not a price I' pay for an 02 - I see most nice 02-03s going for $3-4k, so thats the ballpark for offers. I'm not married to any particular year, but from what I know of the 919, the bike is basically unchanged and simple aftermarket mods can make the difference anyway.

My biggest problem is finding a nice 919 close enough to me.

I'm not the type to start conflicts, & I'm not trying to start one now... but this is a perfect example of why I'm so "anti-dealership".

I understand needing to make a profit to keep afloat, but this seems a bit rediculous.

3 years ago I was in my local PowerSportsPro checking out a silver 04 that had been sitting on the floor for at least a year. I bumped into a friend of mine who happened to be there & he had asked me if the exhaust on the 919 was 4 into 2 or 4-into-1-into-2. At the time I wasn't sure so I knelt down & checked. I was stunned when I saw a bunch of cobwebs under the bike...SERIOUSLY, it had been sitting that long.

As I was observing this, a salesperson came by & asked if she could help me.
I said, "Do you realize there are cobwebs under this bike!?"
She laughed & said, "I hope you're not serious"
I'm like, "yeah, I AM SERIOUS. Let's go have a talk."

My wife & I sat down with her, killed a few minutes filling out paperwork in anticipation of making a deal. Now, I forget exactly what they were asking for this leftover silver beauty, I think it was about $5500. Of course I had been coming in every few weeks for the past year or two so I knew it had been there a while - the cobwebs were a dead giveaway too. So I threw out some low-ball price thinking if they can't move a bike in nearly a year & a half, surely they'd want to make room for something else that'll bring in more money.

Nope.

She tells me they wouldn't be able to bend more than $60.00 on the price.

My wife & I turn to each other in disbelief...

"Okaaay?," as we stand up to leave, "good luck to ya!"



I was in the same PSP this summer, what did I see in the back?

A poor, beaten silver '04, used & abused. Dent in the tank, scrapes on the side, sitting with the other used bikes.
Price tag: $5300.00
No thanks.


3 of the 4 vehicles I currently own (1 car, 1 pickup, 2 bikes) came from private sales.
AutoTrader / CycleTrader, & craigslist - all were no-hassle deals, friendly people who I'd have no issues dealing with again. I know that not everyone will agree with this practice because they have to have something new. If you're one of those people, I say sincerely "THANK YOU", treat your new car/truck/motorcycle with love & care (cause it's your "baby")... then when you're done with it, sell it to someone like me.

+1...I've bought just about every car, truck or bike I've owned in this same fashion and have had great success

Yes, not to get too OT, but some dealerships are ridiculous with their pricing. Granted the 919 was expensive when new, but you can't help but trip over "new" 06-07 919s sitting in dealerships - they are three years "new" at this point. Yet, they don't take up much space, so I guess dealers are okay waiting for someone to come in and buy one at tag.

My closest dealer (Raleigh) has a repainted used 06 for $6400, just reduced to 6100... Its been dropped.

I'm always open to private sales and CL, but there aren't many used 919s near enough for me to get them without shipping, and then you're back up at dealer prices...

So, I'm looking within a close distance, biding my time...

I hate dealing with dealerships too. I bought my last vehicle new from CarMax, no haggle price, all vehicles are listed on the internet, and they actually keep it up to date and show the invoice price and rebates, so when you go there the car you saw on the net is there. No BS, get in and out. I would buy again in a minute. Most other dealership I will walk away after talking to a salesman for 5 minutes.

Saki--I went and looked at the bike yesterday. It's pretty clean, but--and I'm a stickler for cleanliness--with only 9,000 some-odd miles on her, I expected it to be a little cleaner. It does have stainless brake lines and the factory screen. Small, small dimple on the tank, about where you'd put a protector. I asked the Sales guy and gal (she was 'in training'--very cute, BTW) how much they would come off their price, and I got the same dealer-talk you always get; "When will he (you) be able to come look at the bike?......It depends when he comes and buys it......You know, it's better to come in at the end of the month; that's when we have more haggle room..." Blah, blah, blah...

Bike is overpriced, and these guys are not motivated at all to sell. Just to give you an idea, they have 4 '07 919's on the floor, and they are all tagged with MSRP. They aren't even trying to sell these things. These same 4 have been on their floor since this past Spring. Forget H of WS. Talk to Barton--he's a stand-up guy, plus he's one of us! Or, there's always these guys (I bought from them in Oct, '07): http://www.southernhonda.com/default.asp They have '07's for $6,783.

Good luck! Whereabouts are you in NC?

Thanks for the look. I'm in Raleigh now - ad919 might bring his bike up this weekend, and there's another 03 919 in Morehead City thats a more reasonably priced $3100. Time to start a thread about that one too...
