Honda CB | eBay

What do you think it'll go for? $6K? $7K? $8K?

I think that's a dealer thing in some states. I bought mine with 0 miles off the showroom floor in 2010. They rode it up and down the block a couple times, >1/2 mile, put 1 mile on the paperwork and sent me on my way.

That's actually pretty low for a dealer price - I guess the paint job hurts the value. I love the look of the single exhaust.



As far as the 0 mile bike, I don't know. Modern leftovers with abs and more power start around what? 8K?

So something like this maybe slots in around 6K? 5.5? Great condition used 919s seem to get close to 5K or so mint, right?

IMO, it really won't make a big difference. These bikes are well known for lasting many, many miles.

I wonder about the condition of things on a bike that hasn't been used for some 8 years. There's all kinds of moving parts and fluids.

Otherwise it should go about $500 over others that are near mint.

I've never been that concerned about miles on most bike until it gets to the point where you need to dig into the engine stuff.

It is a state thing and a stupid thing at that.

Nice to get a brand new bike but I would bet whoever buys it will have to go through the entire engine, change all of the fluids and make certain all of the bushings, O-rings and seals are still functional and not brittle. I picked up my 919 a couple years ago for less than $5K and it had less than 4800 miles on it. I was worried that the bike had so few miles for its age but it sounded great and rode strong so I picked it up. I am not sorry I did and there is not another bike out there I would trade it for today for less than $13K. I see clean 919's on Craigslist with low miles for under $5K all of the time. New is nice but not certain I would want any precision machine that has sat idle for so long.

I bought my leftover crate 919 with 0 on the clock. Been a fun time ever since. Since it has 0, it should come with (i believe) 1 year warranty free of charge. Nuts about it though is unless you finance through dealer for their promo rate, banks dont consider it a new bike due to year. No biggie now that rates are so low for almost anything, but when i bought mine in 2010 it wasnt the same story. But still, i think it was 6200 out the door for mine? Been awhile, but thus far very worth it for me to have it since mile 0. I bought the back in January, so the dealor couldnt do anything other than let me start it up and listen, and then signed paperwork and had it put back in its crate and shipped to me to open and ride 3 months later.

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.
