So been browsing prices on bikes recently, but prices vary so vastly its scary, so my question...

What should a low hour 2017 KTM 250/300 go for? Been seeing prices from R75k all the way to R100k, all for 2017 bikes with roughly the same hours on them

Most of the guy's have to settle for way lower prices end of the day...

I reckon if you are approaching prices in the 90's it makes more sense to go new? With regards to warranty etc etc it's the smarter choice.

As in rather finance?
Yes.

A bike with 60 hours on it is due a full suspension rebuild, sprockets and chain, top end, wheel bearings, etc... And that's if nothing else is wrong. Add up that cost and you are in the same ball park as buying new.

Same goes for a 2014 that needs a full rebuild, gearbox work, new starter, battery, a few protection bits and other bits and bobs. Brings the dumbass buyer close to the price of a brand new one out the box:icon_lol:

I always do.. Never wait from something to go wrong... that's why it is called maintenance and not repair intervals. If you wait for something to go wrong, and correct me if this has never happened to you, but you generally find several other issues along the way that require your attention (thus changing a simple 5k job into a 10K job).

If you want to spend 100k on a secondhand bike. I'm thinking of selling my 2018 300 TPI with 14 very light hours on.

2. TPI is kak and the lectron is better
3. You buying a Beta :icon_lol:

Even if there was twins coming , it would not be reason to sell a bike. I have 2 kids and have not been a day without a bike in the past 12 years.

Nothing wrong with the tpi, for my riding style I just prefer a carb bike wit SC or lectron. But it's not that bad that I'll give it away.

Beta......NEVER

Point 1 and 3 was just a joke.

Just before the TPIs were launched I had to decide without test riding the new TPI if I am buying TPI or picking up a 2017 carb on special.
Went the Lectron route. So just glad to hear there are people who have tested the TPIs and Lectron/Smartcarb and prefer the carb.
