Hey all,

My name is Lori and I am new to riding and loving it!! I am looking for a V Star 650 to purchase as my first bike. Can anyone give me an idea of prices for used bikes (Canadian) or is it a better idea to go new? :rolleyes:

New bike

Lori,

I see you did not get a reply. I can't help on the price in Canada. But My opinion on new or used. There are a lot of low mileage bikes in good shape out here. If you plan to buy a bike to learn on then go on to a larger bike then I would go used. You would loose a bunch if you traded in a late model bike later.

650 V Star is a good bike and many are happy there. In that case you might look at new.

Like Dave, don't know about Canada, butI see in the local paper tonight there is an 07 650 Silverado w/ext warranty, accs, and only 200 miles for $4995, so I thought that sounded pretty good. Something like that would be a thought. good luck to you, have fun:)

Hi Lori, congrats on the new adventure! I just learned to ride in April, and bought a used '06 Vstar classic in May. I love it, it's a great bike, and I'm glad I bought used. I don't know how the market for bikes is in Canada, but the competition this spring was nuts. I had about 12 bikes sell out from under me - literally I would show up at the appointed time and someone else would be riding the bike off into the sunset. As a result I got a little trigger happy - I love my bike but if I had it to do over again I would have waited out the summer and hunted in fall/winter. Probably would have gotten a better bike for a better price (I paid US. $3000, shouldn't have paid more than 25 for the shape the bike's in). Take your time and buy a Clymer manual once you get your bike. Good luck to you!
