One was a Electra which has done around 24k and it is a 2007 model. I will be the third owner. It was a very short ride, could not find any shortcomings, but was not that appealing as well. The bike does not have discs.
The owner is quoting 45k.

Today, I drove a Machismo 350. 2008 model and done 13k kms. The ride was too good, and the bike seemed to be in excellent condition. The bike has front disc and ES. The owner is leaving abroad and is quoting 80k.
What would be the right price for both of them. Your replies would help me take a quick decision.

Thanks
The first one u can settle for Rs 40k and the second one for Rs 65k +5k max.

Hi All,

what would be the ideal price of Honda activa, Black, DOP: 18-mar-2005 ,102cc, , single user, no accidents, not used for last one year, engine oil has been changed in last two months, battery has never been replaced, teflon coated and hence the colour is still bright. It has run only 7800 kms .
i have quoted Rs 22k based on the age of the bike.

Thanks
MSVG

@msvg: Thanks for the reply.

@proxima: In fact, I asked the owner about the on-road price when he bought it and he said it was 98k. Anyways, the bike has been sold out to someone else for 77k.

Thanks

22k seems a bit on the higher side for a 5 year old Activa but you can still justify based on the kms it has run. So 22k should be a fair asking price. Asking price in the market will be in the range of 22-25k from dealers and up to about 20k from individuals. But these vehicles would have done in excess of 30k kms in the 5 years.

Hey all,

I own pulsar 150 digital, three n half year old, 17000 kms. OK condition. How much should I ask for? I want to go in for a GS150R or dazzler, hence selling pulsar.

Thanks

Snap it up if it is in good condition! Check it for everything, spend time with it.

A CI bull done with its teething and not showing too many problems is worth the money.

@msvg and EssYouWe: Thanks for the replies guys.

But again I was a little too late in closing the deal. Its sold out for 83k.
A lot of good shiny machismos keep coming in between and I'm trying my best not to succumb to the temptation.

Thanks

One of my friends sold a fully blown 5 speed RXZ a few months back for 50k, the new owner met with an accident the very next day. The bike was Ernakulam regsitered (KL-7).

@kannan666, isn't 41K a bit high for 3 year old bike? That too a Bajaj? I was hoping for 30K only. I will get it evaluated to dealer for exchange, let's see what comes out...

In an ok condition it should fetch you around 25-27k. You can start by asking for 30-32k and see how the offers pour in. Based on that you can arrive at the price.
