I'm stopping on the way home tonight to look at a NT700V. He has it just about farkled completely. Mileage is 25,000. Price is $6600. Any thoughts?

You seem to be talking yourself into it. :roll: What year is it? Maybe you should just buy it to get the Honda thing out of your system :lol:
Maybe my eyes aren't that good, but I couldn't see the scratch that he was talking about.Have you thought about a touring bike but came to the conclusion they are just too big. Well, here is one that will probably fit. It's a NT700V 700cc Sport/Touring masterpiece. Shaft Drive with a 5-speed transmission smooth like only Honda can make them. It's broken in with 23,000 miles on it All the required service has been done by the Honda dealer in Everett. You will think it is new by the way it sounds and rides. If you like accessories then this is the bike for you, it comes with:
Honda Service Manual
Cee Bailey Windshield (just a little bigger) plus the original and it's adjustable
GPS mount on the dash (GPS not included)
Honda hand protectors
BMW plug for heated gear
Honda Top Box
The large side-case covers plus the original ones
Side-case interior bags
Adjustable foot pegs (plus the originals)
Welded on larger base for the kickstand (pretty cool)
Honda Tank Protector pad
The top box has a few scratches and nicks (bought it used) but still looks great as you can see. The bike has very minor signs of use.
Email me back with your phone number so I can call you right back.
You would be paying a lot for ABS and a newer bike as that is the only apparent change other than color.TeeMon said:About a year and a half ago, I bought a small motorcycle. I soon learned that I had made a mistake as I had become a motorscooter guy. So I bought a Honda SH150i - another mistake. Then I bought a Kymco People 250S, and that didn't work out for me either. So I'm back to only having my 08 Burg 400.
But now, my temptation is to buy a new 2012 Burgman 400 - there are several for sale at various dealers and they are being offered for $600 less than MSRP. And with Suzuki's Zero percent financing, it is very tempting to trade my 08 Burg 400 in on a new one with ABS.
But when I mentioned my idea to The Wife, she was not smiling. I took that to mean that she did not approve of my great idea. So now I'm trying to figure out how to present my great idea to her in a way that she will say, "sure, go ahead and buy it, dear, it makes absolutely great sense".
But maybe I should just keep riding & enjoying my 08 Burg! Help, my head hurts!
The NTV is totally different than the NCX. If John Grinsell’s opinions have any weight with you, the NTV is the only bike he’s owned recently with good wind management. I didn’t take it on the freeway like I did the NCX, but I would agree with him based on what I found.Desert Rat said:So Chris........ Is the NT700V that much different than the NC700X you test rode & didn't like. :?
