I just saw a dealership ad for a 01 XR650R for $4,999. is that a good deal? by the way, it wouldn't be a bike for me (way too heavy). Just to let everyone else know in case they are interested. I was looking at the 400 which are a lot more, why is that?

Not a bad price for new, but here lately I've seen some used 2000 models for as little as $3500. As for the 400, there are a bunch of new bikes out there for the same money that are light years ahead of the XR400. If I did an XR4 I would certainly score a good used one, the market has pretty much dropped out on them since the DRZ, WR & KTM's hit the last few years. XR is a hell of a dependable bike...just not worth $5K+ compared to the alternatives.

I have seen several dealerships (Michigan) advertising XR650R's for $3,999.00. Not a real popular woods bike in Michigan but it sure would make a great dual sport ride!

WoW $3999!

No wonder I'm seeing them for $3500 with the hop up kit! Never ridden one, but had the 650L last year and loved the bike...other than the weight. The 650R looks like a blast for desert & DS.

Fay Meyers in Denver did have new xr400s for sale right at $4k for a while.
Don't know if they are still available at that price.
