Katana Value Question

I rode a 1999 Katana 600 today, a family member wants to buy it., it's in nice shape with low miles (1850). Is $3,300 a good price, seems good to me.

Yes first bike, she's very capable (physically) and the bike is quite soft in the throttle. She's taken a MC safety course and knows how to ride just never owned one.

Sounds like a decent deal. They're like 6K brand new. 1800mi. is low, I'd give the guy $3,300.


Gettin' jiggy wit it!

Giving her $3,300 to take the bike sounds fair.
