Looking to buy new CRF 50: OTD Price? (Houston, TX)

Recommended Posts

So, I'm looking to buy a new CRF 50 for my little one. I've never bought a new bike and I know they try to add a bunch of fees on to the MSRP. Trying to do my research so I don't get screwed.

What's a good OTD price I should aim for?

Location: Houston, T (I'd rather buy new as not much available on Craigslist)

Best quote I got was $1850 OTD in SC at Christmas. Where I am in FL I was quoted a couple hundred more.

I would stick with a nice used model if possible.

I found 4 on offer up in Houston:

2015 $900 https://offerup.com/item/detail/278749160

2011 $1000 https://offerup.com/item/detail/277996060

Unknown year $700 https://offerup.com/item/detail/260521372

Bottom line is a well running used one will stay that way with minimal maintenance, so used can save you a boatload of cash

I bought 3 different XR50s, 4 different XR70s and several XR80s & 100s for my grandkids.
I bought every bike used.
Each kid used the respective bike till they outgrew it then I sold it, some I lost maybe $200 on a bike, most I made money on.
Bottom line is a used CRF50 (or whatever bike) is worth what it is.
A new bike turns used really quick. 
But... if people didn't buy new bikes there would be no used bikes.
I thank ever guy that buys a new bike...
