Default Buying a used Honda Dio - Is it a good deal

I have finalized to buy a used Honda Dio and the below are the details:

1) Year of manufacture/registration: Aug 2010
2) Kms run: 2685.
3) Usage: Sparingly used.
4) Vehicle condition: Good
5) Vehicle colour: Black + Purple
6) No accidents.
7) Couple of scratches

Finalized amount: Rs.42,500/-

This was used by one of my friend as he is transferred to other city, he wants to sell this. Since I was looking for a used Honda Activa/Dio for my wife, I want to go ahead with the above.

Is this a good deal.

Riju, new bike is around 55xxx - 3 months waiting. Have bought down from 45K quoted to 42,500.

Yes, it is a decent price for a 5 month old vehicle. I presume this is the refresh model..Love the mudguard on this one.

Ooops srini never knew the prices had gone up so much.I was under the impression that the price is around 48k or so. It's a fair deal pal, go ahead and pick it up.

Even I feel its a fair deal.
6 months and only 2.6k run is very sparingly used.Try negotiating a bit more, its worth it.
Check service records properly.In 6 months time 2 services should be completed atleast.
Strike a nice deal, all the best.

It's a good deal. Pick it up. Scratches are not a problem. Just get the affected panel replaced. They are cheap.
