Hey guys I wanted to get some opinions on whether purchasing this bike may be in my best interest.
It's a 2002 KTM520SX, it already has supermoto wheels and upgraded brakes but it is not fully street worthy just yet. The electrical and light conversionis the least of my worries for me but I'm thinking of buying this off of a friend who could potentially cut me a good deal.
The bike is in excellent running shape, stored indoors, 4 spd, and comes with an extra set of slicks and a whole other set of plastics. I don't "need" another bike but I miss my 96 CR500SM and summer is coming up...I love riding on and off-road. My other 2 wheel ride is an 01 RC51.
My question is, what would this be worth? My friend paid $3500 for it a couple-few years ago so I may be able to get it from him for possibly $2500 or around there (ca$h money
). He doesn't ride it much.
I also do enjoy riding in the trails and would take significant advantage of a dirt bike if I bought another one. I've had numerous dual sports, but the KTM would at least need some new tires for the dirt. The set of tires currently mounted are pretty aggressive, so they may fair "OK" off-road.
Should I just get this and convert it to what I need it for, or spend the money elsewhere on another dual sport for perhaps less money?
Thanks and I value everyone's input
