Suzuki DL650 V-Strom - For Sale - UK

To finance a summer of canoeing and exploring in Canada, I am reluctantly selling my bike...

2004 Suzuki DL 650 V-strom
46,000 Miles
Centre Stand
Crash bars
Suzuki Aluminium sump guard.
Full Suzuki Colour matching plastic 'Givi' luggage. Side boxes and large back box. (not in mint condition but fully functional)
DL1000 Seat (it's higher and more comfortable)
Scott Oiler
Two sets of keys for everything
NOTE...Rethal Dakar High bars may be removed...

MOT until 4th November 2012. Tax about the same.

The service book is full of history and I gave it a full service about 3,000 miles ago (Oil, plugs, filters, valve clearances etc).

There are LOADS of these bikes going around with over 100,000 miles on them. They are super reliable as they are really low tuned engines (originally on the SV650)

It also has almost new wheel bearings front and rear.

It's a really good runner and always been 100% reliable for me. I've not had a single problem with it. It's always been garaged.

It has the odd mark here and there and there is a little paint corrosion on the engine. It's in fabulous condition for the age though.

The tyres will need to be changed soon. The chain and sprockets are in good condition (due to the chain oiler). Brake pads are also good as is the battery. It's always started first time in all weathers and never missed a beat.

I've not seen one of these for sale for under £3000 with similar accessories but I understand the mileage is a little higher than most so I'm only asking

£2650 OVNO

Hi TT

I think some of the ebay prices are a little inflated as they are dealers. I did start speaking to Geordie about this one but it was already sold.

It's still the cheapest I've seen for sale...


But like I say, I'm open to 'sensible' offers....

I probably did sell it cheap !!

But it had to go.. needed the funds.. and it had given me years of pleasure

I still think yours (Ted) is slighty over priced and not the best time of the year to be selling (we have snow in Newcastle today!!!)

Cheers
Geordie

Id agree it was over priced if it wasn't kitted out so well..

I've checked biketrader, MCN, Ebay and Gumtree. None have anything cheaper which aren't complete hacks or totally standard.

I'd probably take £2400 minimum. Show me something cheaper or better !!!
