For Sale: Honda NX 400 Falcon
Hey all, my Honda NX Falcon 400 is for sale here in Sucre (Bolivia), was going to sell it locally but saw a member searching and thought I should advertise her here first.
This is her:
Honda NX400 Falcon 2000 model
$3500 (new price is $7000 here)
All in my name, to transfer takes 4 or 5 days and costs $70
None! If you buy in Chile (2nd hand) then you will probably have issues entering Argentina, Bolivia and Peru like I did (my paperwork never arrived so I had to get a power of attorney document from the previous owner which wasn't recognised everywhere I went!!). I haven't had any problems getting around with a Bolivian plated bike and I've also seen them all over SA being ridden by foreigners. You may need insurance in some places but that's not the bikes fault
Well the plastics are fairly torn up and it's fairly beaten but it's mechanically sound. She was a bit low on compression in August so I had a new piston and set of rings put in, now she's running better than ever. I've ridden it all around Bolivia, onto the Salar and into Northern Chile and had very few problems, only one flat tyre (due to not checking pressure after purchase), one flat battery (due to being bogged in sand
) and one blown fuse. Tires are at about 70%.
I would however, recommend you to be somewhat mechanically apt, i.e be able to repair a clutch cable and that sort of thing because it is not a brand new bike (though I would recommend this to anyone riding around SA). I will include tyre levers and spare inner-tubes with the sale.
She does about 300km to a tank though you can carry an extra 10l with the jerry can holders I had made giving you approximately 500km range however you would have to choose between using these to carry more fuel or pillion pegs to carry some random girl you pick up.
Sucre is a single 12 hour journey from La Paz by bus and probably the best Bolivian city to be stuck in ! Perfect climate, beautiful place and lots of attractive young women. Even if you're not interested in my bike make sure to stop by
Chuck some bags on her and she's good to go! The side racks are sized perfectly for Andy Strapz.
