Default anyone know anything about yamaha xv1700 warriors

just a bit of a query, I know that theres a wide spread of bike tatses and experience on this site so was wondering what if any people had heard of them??

the bike is a 53 plate 3000 miles mint condition, now this bike new was 10500, they are now about 8500 new, and matey wants about 4500 for this one, Im real tempted as its got mean looks as standard, (except the huuuuuuge car exhaust), belt drive etc, so was planning on some minimal work on it to have a nice looking custom, thats comfortable and reliable

200mm rear as standard, and half decent lines in my opinion

link to some pics and spec of the bike

cheers

Tony

cheers for the input guys, the seller rang me last night and said he wont take less than 5000 for it now, I know its only 500 extyra, but its sort of seems so much more expensive, going to have a good think about it and see what happens, main problem being that I was selling my Zed to a mate to help pay for this, last night went to a new local bike club on it, and came back with such a huge smile Im not sure if I can get rid of the Zed LOL

oh and was the only bike at the bike club??? was raining LOL

Fine looking engine.
Not keen on the rest of it, good blank canvas though.
The 1600 looks a lot more realistic to me on the link you posted.
I'd have one o'them to tinker with.
Need to hear it first though.

For 5k its a bargain, most second hand ones are 7K up, they handle fine if you've not just jumped of an R1, hold their price really well, if its got low mileage have it.
Got a mate who's rode haarley most of his life, always slagging off these, rode one, then bought one within a week.
