Probably too much if the 1997 Blade price is anything to go by although could be I've missed the start of the rise of 929/954 prices as its about time they started to ascend after years in the £2000-3000 range Grin

Great bike though, I'd trade my 929 for one if only for the extra CC and black frame

I know I shouldn't really have asked because the answer will only piss me off Laugh

I sold mine (against what my brain was telling me) about 10 years ago, I think I got about £2800 for it, and have regretted it ever since. At the time it was get rid of the bike or lose my licence, which I couldn't afford to happen. What I should have done was just mothball it and use for track days etc. with something more sensible for the road.

Probably the last proper RR bike before the long qualitative decline started with the CBR600RR. My only gripe is the OE exhaust is most likely not included in the deal, those things are really rare nowadays and I don't think they cannot even be sourced directly from Japan anymore. Basically the only real long term issues a decently maintained SC50 may have are the alternator and the TPS, with only the latter being a very serious problem. The rest is just tear and wear.

As an aside I'd like to know if some real person (not some random chap that may or may not exist) is paying these crazy prizes on old and not really collectable vehicles. I have a watchlist for BMW HP2 Sport and exactly the same bikes that were on sale on May 2020 are on sale right now: ads get automatically removed after two months of no activity so these bikes were still there at least this past March. Nobody is buying one at €25000 or more: those are €16000 bikes at most and the closer they are to 40000km the less they are worth. With Japanese bikes there's the added issue of parts availability: literally a ton of parts have been NLA for at least five years and even specialists like Amayama Trading cannot source them from the original vendors anymore.
