Is this New F4 cheap?

What do you guys think, seems to be cheap for whats wrong with it. I can get the plastics repaired and sprayed by my dad so that wont cost.... what do you reckon?

Seems like a good deal for someone looking to fix her up. Still under warranty too.

Looks like an easy fix to me. No matter how good the repair job is it will still always remain as a CAT D though so take this in to consideration for its value of course. Plus it's bidding so price will go up. If it can be bought at a decent price and there is no damage to the subframe etc then go for it.
I'm always a bit sceptical though as for an insurance valued to write it off doesn't it have to have damage exceeding 40% of it's Market value?

Most insurance companies write off bikes because of the chance of there being hidden problems and the rider getting hurt after repairs.

a lot of insurance companies will write off to prevent liability issues later on....does not mean that the bike is beyond repair. I have seen people fix bikes worse than this and you couldn't tell anything happen after they finished...

Used non Cat D bikes are selling at retail for £10 to £11k in dealers. Suggesting that they paid £1k less than the asking price. So if a non Category D accident total loss can be bought for between £9000 and £10000 then a crashed one is at its top end already at £6500 IMHO. I see it as £6k for me to bother with it but if it is for your own use it is a less expensive entry route onto a 2010 bike.

In the car trade a Cat D repaired car is usually valued at around two thirds book value. I'd go along with the 6k valuation

ok thanks for the input guys, it finishes tommorrow, im going to keep and eye on this, like Proddieracer says, its a cheap 2010 bike that I would keep for myself, not in it to make money or sell on so the Q plate wouldnt bother me, perhaps i could get a plate that would read 'Qu1ck' ;-)

The bike wouldnt go on a Q plate it would retain its own number plate but would go on the register as accident damaged ( cat d ) economical repair it doesnt go on the log book either as a cat d. If it was a cat C it would be stamped on the log book as a cat C ( uneconomical repair )

I would agree with that, you can also get the bike 'condition inspected' that means you can then get a pay out if it was to get stolen (stops people buying and insuring crash damage then 'claiming again')

Look hard as there is neraly always some hidden damage.

Bike will not be on a 'Q' they're for stolen recovereds with no identity,

As for the value after the repair just think how cheap it would need to be to attract you as a buyer (it's against the law not to declare it's a Cat D)

Undamaged bike £10500, would you pay £9500? (no) £8500 (no) £7500 (perhaps) £6500 (definately, thats the price of a 2001 750!!)
