Is this a good price for a used 310r?

There are a LOT of 2018 used 310Rs for sale. I can get a white one with 2300 miles for 3400 plus tax and no fees from a private seller.
Is this a decent price or is it too high for the mileage?

This is a good price in my view, depending on general condition, extras or not etc. This is for the USA where it sounds like you are located. Offer $3K and point to some flaws or the fact there is more supply. There should be warranty left.

No extras. There is warranty left but 3400 is as low he’ll go.

Ok. If you think you can do better then shop around some more. Perhaps he'll reconsider, or if you want, you can always go back later and buy it for that amount, provided he hasn't sold it yet. Negotiations are always tricky.

It all depends on how motivated you are in buying and how motivated he is in selling. 2000 miles is really nothing considering BMW provides 3 years/36,000 miles warranty.

There are a lot of them for sale, because people outgrow them really quickly and 2018 models have lots of issues. If you are looking for a used BMW look at a used 650GS or 700GS you will be much happier.

There are not many for sale around me... 1 out of 163 BMW bikes for sale in a 200mi radius (Craigslist) The one that was for sale was $4,650 with 735mi stainless Akra exhaust, 15T front sprocket (16 std) and TKC Tires (I wonder where the stock tires are)


I have one and it was $6,040.00 before Tax etc and the runin service was $320.00 so I will assume that the owner did this which is more than just an oil change where they also check and tighten steering head ( I can't remember term)


So, yes $3,400 is a good price. If I was selling mine I would ask more but I have an Akra Carbon fiber exhaust and an SW-Motech skid place Cerakoted in Gold.


Keep in mind that you will not lose as much if you ever sell. People are selling old 250 Ninjas (2008-11) for the mid 2,000's and some were only $2,999.00 new.


As long as it is in great shape, take it if you want one. It is still under warranty.

2017 Hyosung GD250R Black/Gray
2016 KTM RC390
2014 Kawasaki Ninja 300 SE (sold)
2008 Hyosung GT250R (crashed)
199x Kawasaki Ninja 250 (engine failure)

LOL. I own a Ducati 748, 999, GSZR-750R, etc....., and I havent outgrown the 310R.

I disagree with the 2018 having lots of issues. I daily commute, and no issues.
