F800 on Kijiji (nigerian type scam)

Saw this while looking for a used Givi on Kijiji in Montreal. Don't know the seller but the price seems a bit low? Has my 800 dropped that much in a year?

Seems Low

From the photos, at what we can see that has been added to the bike, it seems low.

The seller must be very motivated to sell!

Yeah, he's got sw motech crash bars. A decent bash plate (not sure of the brand), an akropovic exhaust and the world's ugliest windscreen.

For so few miles, I'd expect that bike to go for over $10k USD easy.

That's nearly half ( $13.8K ) of what i just paid for my '09 with abs and computer and center stand.

Somebody's going to be either really happy... or really sorry.

I'm going to make the assumption... given its' size... that Montreal has
at least a couple of BMW dealers. I'd ask where he bought it and then pay to have a service check done at the other one with particular attention paid to both the motor and frame. Just about anything else is real fixable given
the huge gobs of money you'd be saving.

If he turns down your offer to pay for a service check, that might indicate
potential problems.

The scoot would have to be seriously screwed up to render this a bad deal.

You could probably buy a new motor for it and still be ahead of the game.

I would normally dump on this kind of ad however, a guy here in Halifax took a 1098 S pretty much around the block... scared the piss out of himself and then wanted to trade it in at a pals Harley Dealer for
thousands below what he paid for it.

There are nutbars out there.

Hi

I am communicating with the seller and apparently it is a divorce. Husband bike assigned to wife; totally no interest in the bike and wants to get rid of it asap.
She suggest to use the ebay vehicle purchase plan. It all sound good; very good or to good to be through.
Will see where it will end, but it would be nice if somebody would want to check it out for me locally.

Will keep you guys informed how it all end.

Just talked to seller and the bike isn't gone yet. But I don't trust it so I backed out.

I requested if I could the bike inspected but this isn't allowed. For me a reason, to neglect this add.

Good luck to the buyer. I think he will need it.

This ad is bullshit.

She replied, she said the bike has 1600 miles. We don't use miles here. We use Kilometers...

the IP address of her message is 78.149.134.25 http://whatismyipaddress.com says that London UK. That's pretty far from montreal...

I'll bait her and post the reply:

Full email :

Thanks for being interested in buying my bike..... It is in a good condition, no scratches, no damages, never been implicated in any accidents, no problems at the engine, runs very well. It has 1300 miles, all documents in hand, a perfect bike. The price is not negotiable, $7,500.00 firm. The only reason of selling it, is because of my divorce with my husband. After the divorce sentence I got the rights on this bike and as a woman I don`t need it(I don`t even have driver license)......we will use only eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection to complete the sale.. If you are interested and you have the funds available email me your full name and shipping address.

Thanks

Here's the response...
Thunder bay is about 700 miles from montreal... Gonna dig some more... this is fun

I am from Thunder Bay, so we have 2 options. Drive down to Thunder Bay and test the bike and then if you are satisfied with it, I can arrange shipping. Or I can start the shipping and you will get the bike in front of you house in 3-4 days along with all the papers that you need to register it under your name. As I told you before, you will have 7 days trial period and if you are not satisfied with it, then I will find another buyer and you don't have to give me any money. This is my best offer. The bike comes with bill of sale and clean title made under your name. If you wish to purchase it please provide me Your Full Name and Your Complete Address so I can initiate the deal through eBay. Also, let me know if there's something else you need to know.

Regards,
