Just wondering if this is normal on a 650 Alp - there seems to be a serial / engine / VIN number party visible on the clocks - Not sure what or why it’s like that you’d think the entire number should be seen????

well, my bike was recently "remodelled" by a person driving a car while on the phone, so everything could be a bit off

£2500 is way too much for a 40,000 mile transalp

i can only see those numbers if i look "down" into the clocks (ie from an angle)

Oh yeah, way too much but theres always wiggle room - Its Oct soon, it might not sell before then and winter is coming...... if there's a deal on the cards might be tempted!

considering brand new in 2001, a 650 transalp was £4,000...used prices these days seem to be pretty high (for bikes under the magic 20,000 miles)

Thansk ds99, very kind. I am still in that "wot to buy" process... today a 650 Alp, tomorrow a Dommi, by Sunday it'll be a KTM ready to breakdown...

yeah, shockingly high - Seen 600 Alps for well over £2,000!! No idea why used bikes are so expensive now :(

it's down to the weak pound, people from mainland Europe coming over and buying bikes to take back home. it's much cheaper for them. used bike prices in mainland europe are very high

a low miles 'all-original', excellent condition 600 Alp from 1987-1990 is worth £2,000, but there are very few of them around

I still think Honda should release a 750cc CRF Transalp, to rival the Tenere 700

if you want a simple mid-level "Adventure" bike there are very few options

Agreed. There are rumors of a Africa Twin 800 around, but TBH it's be too heavy (and expensive). Yam have got it right; simple and cheap :D
