    Default KBB and NADA?

    I'm looking to buy my first Spyder and want to make sure that I pay a fair price.

    I wasn't aware that either KBB or NADA list motorcycle prices/values...and all I see is car info on their sites. Could you provide a direct link to the KBB and NADA sites you're referring too?

    Thanks!

    That link should do it for you.

    The price you should pay? A good question. I usually start somewhere between trade in- and retail. In most cases, there is a $2K to $4K gap. A lot to play around with--if you know what I mean.

    Default 2015 ST-Limited

    That's a great price since the MSRP was around 25K. We found ours in April (2016), up in Detroit (couldn't find any Denim Blue's in Ohio) and it cost us $19,900. Had a '12 RS-S SE5 for a couple years and I added bags and a backrest but it just wasn't comfortable for the long haul. Great for the quick, short rides, but the footpegs and seating position were tiring on the long trips. We certainly didn't like the styling of the new F3's and their frunk space is a joke. Very happy with the '15 STL but it did let us down last week when heading to Skyline Drive. Popped out of gear (or something broke) on an uphill run and that was 'all she wrote'. Super hassle, but we finally got it back to Ohio and it's now at the Dealership service department (we were told that it's still under warranty!).

    Default ST No heat panels

    Local dealer told me that there was no recall for the heat panels for my ST.. They stated only RT ?

    After reading some of these replies I feel bad. Just purchased a 2014 ST Ltd for 13400 and felt I made a decent deal however after reading some of these I am begining to wonder. KBB had it listed with a 15800 retail.

It's got a sporty look to it yet has a good seating position with cruise and a radio. The 1330 might be better but the 990 is very reliable with decent power. It's much better looking than the F3 chassis
    yes it's been like that for a while here it started when the RT came out it was always why haven't you ungraded yet then the 1330 and again you must up grade and with every change little glitchs throttle body issues heat gear position sensors belt vibrations my 09 s are rock solid have cables going to the throttle body's and my foot is connected to the tranny I'm just fine with no "up grade" and did I mention my old out dated rs weighs less and out accelerates the new up graded latest and greatest
    2 happy happy spyders

    KBB shows about a $4K gap between trade-in value and dealer "asking" retail. The "real" price should be somewhere in between--depending on area, dealer, etc.
