Buy either. Everyone knows that all Japanese bikes are perfect and without any quality issues.

The SV is a great choice, but that price seems WAY too low, make sure its not a scam! DO NOT western union payment, as this is a sure sign of a scam.

The price on the SV is below book value. The Seca is low on power compaired to the SV and in the twisties there will be no compairson. If the SV is mechanically sound, it's the way to go.

SV price appears too low - red flags always heighten my "Buyer Beware" consciousness.



Regardless, it sounds like what you realy want, and what would be very appropriate for the type of riding you do, is the SV. You may have to go to an earlier year...maybe '01 if $2500 is your price point, but clean bikes sold by owners with scruples are available.



For what it is worth, mine is a '99 (1st year available), has 25K miles and runs like a top. Taken it touring, track days, etc. So, don't get too hung up on the newest with lowest miles if your budget is limited. Any extra $ spent on suspension upgrades are sure to be rewarding.



Good luck - let us know what you do!

Default Buell

Find yourself a used Buell. Jap bikes are a dime a dozen and the parts are on the high side when they need to be fixed.

Default SV and Seca info Update

Yes the SV was a scam.



I finally heard back from the "seller" and it was the "I'm in the UK/send money order/third party holder scam". Very original. So I mailed of an envelope of cash off to the seller with my name, address, SS number all my banking info



The Seca bike is legit. So any info on it would be great.
