Book price means nothing, something is worth whatever someone is willing to pay. What would it cost new now...2500 miles is partially run in....

Made for two years....same goes for the HP2E.

I've got an SE with approx 30K on the odometer, all the extra parts you could ask for, and I will NEVER sell it.
I run it a few miles every two weeks and take one or two big trips a year on it and I LOVE IT!





Nothing else even comes close, nor will anyone ever make such a ridiculous machine ever again.

And they're usually high mileage at that. The cheapest was $12,000aud and it was well used and unloved.

That pretty much sums it up. When I first saw one, I thought this is an iconic motorcycle that wont stay in production. I bought a brand new one and have no plans to sell it. It excites me and scares me all at the same time.

This thread makes me feel better about having paid $8700 US for an 07 with 9000 miles on it. At the time I thought I paid too much for it, but like it has been said by many if you want one you just pay the price. I thought about selling it, but see that is not a good idea at all.
Anyway hope that adds some more perspective on the current value of these bikes.

The SE is not for everyone, but for those it was built for, price is secondary. I've had three and will always have at least one, according to book values and many others I paid too much for all three, whereas I feel I stole each one of them every time I fire them up pushing the little fun button bringing them to life and making me feel 20 yrs younger every time I twist the throttle. I guess it's like that "it's a jeep thing" saying, I guess it's a "SE thing" and for me and many other SE owners I've been around we don't give a crap what others think about the bike or what they think how much we paid. The SE moves the soul...period.

I paid $8500 for an '07 back in 2012. 4500 miles, pristine, akra's, canisterecomy, etc. Well sorted. First ride, I dumped it going about 40mph. I got up, dusted myself off, picked up the bike and haven't stopped laughing since. The bike is pure hooligan on any surface. You won't regret it once you ride it. And make no mistake, if you bought it for $9k, you'd drop another 2-3K on farkles without hesitation. Value is what it's worth to you.

i own two SEs. i'm not objectionable to a third; especially such a low mileage one. where is this pristine beauty?

if i collect more bikes it'll keep me from doing something like buying that new Dodge Challenger Hellcat.

In Australia they sold for around $21,000 ride away. I got mine for $19,500 and a few weeks later they dropped the price by $2,000 to get rid of them. So all you blokes in the U.S. that think you paid too much. You didn't, we did.

I hope he bought it , I paid just shy of Aus $ 18,000 in January 2009 for a mint 2007 model with 7000 km on it , it now has just under 50,000km on it and still gives me wood every time I twist the throttle on any surface . I then had to fork out for the big tank and Bash plate to bring it up to my needed equipment level , which was another $1500 Aus .

Under priced at any price , is my belief .
