Maybe new owner '14 STR, talk to me about this deal

What do you think? I'm a recently retired road racer looking for a great all-around street sport bike but not necessarily a super sport bike.
Budget = Whatever I want in comparison to the expense of racing ..but realistically $12k.
Other possibilities: See budget, but Tuono V4R, '17 STR, '17 FZ09 seem likely suspects

Deal I'm considering:
2014 Triumph Street Triple R, 10500 miles...White/Red
Proof of Maintenance and 1 owner Mint condition at dealer
Few extras like lower and seat cowls and FE

Asking price:
+ $7295
- $800 Discount
= $6495 (for vehicle tax purposes)
Other:
+ $620 Prepay 12K miles service (most likely done next off-season a couple thousand miles late but will change own fluids earlier)
+ $550 Arrow Slip-on
+ $30 Arrow Flash Tune
= $7695 OTD (then pay taxes)

Concerns are:
1) Miles/extras versus price. Somewhat made up for by buying from a dealer that supports my local Race Org
2) Will I get bored?

TIA

Get them to throw in the service and it's not a bad deal. The other option is to find a new my15 or my16 at a dealer that has been marked down. I bought a 2015 Triple ABS last spring for $2500 under msrp.

First thing that really jumps out at me is the deal with the Arrow. Are you buying the Arrow (new) from the dealer? If so, then super-shame on them for charging you another $30 to update the tune!

The 12,000 mile service charge sounds pretty high as well. I'm in Springfield, Mo, the local dealership here charges about $200 to check the valves/adjust throttle bodies. Adjustment of the valves would be more, but adjustment, from what I've been reading/seeing on this board over the years, isn't too common unless you rev the piss out of the engine. The rest of the required maintenance on the Striple is very easy to do on your own, unless you just don't have the time, space or inclination to do it.

Overall, the price does not sound that bad, especially considering there just aren't that many Striples to be had in our market.

edit... You won't get bored! lol

Thanks for the replies so far!

What's a good price on the Arrow pipe? $550 + $30 flash is the same as just saying I'm paying $580 for the pipe installed. Seems ridiculous for a slip-on but the other decent options are $400-$550 from what I can tell.

Sounds like overall you both think there might be a few hundred dollars left in it.

PS Neanderthal I learned how to ride on US160 and all those other roads that branch out through the Ozark Mountains during my MSU days.

I don't know what the new-style Arrow's sell for, but I've never heard of a dealership selling the pipe to someone and then charging them extra to upload the latest tune.

Yeah, that is odd, but sales are slow this time of year.

I doubt you'll get bored. My '14 is stronger than my '12 was and they both love to both putt around and spend a day bouncing off the redline. And both keep up with about anything on back roads. The service cost is reasonable if it includes replacing valve shims if the clearances are out of spec. Even more reasonable if they actually lube the steering bearing and shock pivots. The charge for the reflash likely has more to do with keeping the sales and service books straight. $580 sounds reasonable for the Arrow.

Dont know if you're interested in a 12, but I've been sort of trying to sell mine. Daytona cams, Termin8tor header, Ohlins rear shock, bunch of other stuff. It'll eat a regular street triple for lunch. 4k miles. I prefer the 12 and below bikes because you can do all the tuning/diagnostics yourself.

Thanks! Its a great bike, but I just haven't been riding on the street after getting into the track last year. I think this year I've ridden all of about 20 miles on it. I'm starting to feel bad for it!
