If the bike is clean and well maintained. I'd say it's an OK deal.

Buying a new one would have likely cost you close to $4,000 out the door so if you feel good about the deal and you're happy with the way the scooter looks and performs then, yes, you got a good deal. That's all that really matters. Enjoy your bike and ride safe.

Your $1800 firm price is more than fair but that's the price to you, the seller. The buyer will be paying more when he/she goes to their DOL to register and license their new purchase especially if their state has a sales tax.
