GLWS, I think you may be high on your asking price.....

They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

Way too high...

No disrespect intended, and you may find a buyer who thinks as you do... buyers with a bit more experience will have discovered the following:

Extremely low miles almost always means that the bike has been sitting without moving for some number of years..... that's a recipe for clogged fuel lines, bad seals on forks, sticky chain links, rust in the fuel tank, problems with the brakes from corrosion caused by the water in the fluid.

The tires, and pretty much any rubber line on the bike will all have become brittle due to age alone.

The battery is likely shot from sitting at zero charge for an extended period.

Critters could have moved into the exhaust or air box.

Electrical switches will have become unresponsive...

All of this can be corrected with time and money..... but a pretty bike that doesn't run well is a two wheeled sailboat. A hole into which you pour money. that's why the asking price will likely not be met.... the buyer should factor in all of the parts and labor to make the bike safe to operate.

If you have documentation to show that all of the areas of concern have been addressed, you can ask the sort of money you would like to get out of the bike.

What RJ says is totally true. And even if the bike is in great shape with no issues you have to take into account the actual cash value (ACV) of the bike. NADA and KBB show it to be worth around $3k in perfect shape. Like RJ says... you still might find that one person willing to pay that much for it but it's not likely especially if someone knows what they're looking at.

When it all boils down, you've got a 14 year old bike and are asking a price people can get a much more current bike for. If it's not a "need to sell now" kind of deal, hold onto it and see what fish bite! Can't hurt! But if you need to sell it fast, I'd research the price a bit and ask something more reasonable for what you have.

Start high on asking price and have room for negotiations. You may be a bit high but who cares. The thing is clean. It's your bike and you can do whatever makes you happy. I am not keen on red but I am sure someone will find that bike appealing. Good luck. Don't let other people deter you from trying to get some good money for it. Like I said, you can always go down. Satrting at $3,000 and going down to $2500 for such a clean bike doesn't really make a lot of sense either.

First, sorry to hear about your back. On occasion mine act's up and it's a bitch.

I couldn't ride the Ninja as a street bike, so my Tiger 1050 takes that task.
My ninja is a track bike, so for 20 minutes at a time. It rocks.

I am holding a 2007 Triumph Speed Triple 1050 with 15k miles, averaged a little over a thousand miles a year.
We will be asking 4,500 in a month or so. $3,500 low side. Just to give you an idea.
All service was just done.

So watch it, and expect to be offered a lower price.
Looks great and I understand, but the market is the market.

Someone just bought a 2016, zero miles for 9k.

Hey man,

First off good luck selling that guy. I hope you get what are asking or near what you are asking, but in honesty, I wouldn't even look at that add on craigslist. I know that everyone thinks mint condition, low mileage bikes are of value and kbb and nada post the price at this. So hey your close right. But lets also look at this. The bike is 14 years old. 14 years. I sold a damn near mint 2008 R6 with i think 14,000 miles in 2014 for $4,000. To often guys on craigslist want a ton of money for their motorcycles. People still trying to sell 2006 and 2007 year models for $6500. Just my two cents. Again, hope you get what you want. Also, sorry to hear about the back. I'm sure that day will come for me to.

Racefit: Not for everybody.....
