Just outside Peoria. This dealer has the only 1300 within the general area that I've even found. I may widen my search but I like these guys so far. I've gotten good service just never bought from them.
howdy. that price seems a little high, but it is the height of buying season and if they have the only one around, the demand is going to be up at its highest. so it's not a bad deal. if there were more around, and you were buying 6 months ago, i think you could find a price closer to around $8.5K - $9K
Welcome! My husband and I currently live in Indianapolis, but may be making a move back to Illinois, in the area I grew up (about 20 miles south of Danville, IL). We have a 2008 V-Star 1300 Tour, I think we paid a little over $7k for it, bought it last year in August. Had almost 4k miles on it then, almost 8k miles on it now.
Welcome to the forum. From what I've read the price is a bit on the high side but it is the high season for selling also. If it's the one you want and you can't wait, then go for it. Why miss out on a great riding season just for a few bucks. Be sure to post some pics of your new ride.
To tell you the truth, my wife and I talked about it and if my financing looks good, I'm hoping to trade up to a Deluxe. I've been in the market for some time now courting the likes of Harley, Victory, Venture, etc. and although there is a lot to like there I've been put off the ridiculous price tags and lack of a middleweight. I feel stupid that I just realized the Deluxe even exists and it looks like the bike I've been looking for all along. I owe it to myself to try and get it.
Anything will be an upgrade to my nonfunctional 79 kz650sr and the Piaggio I've been riding trying to save for a new bike.
