Considering Selling My Bolt in AZ - Private Party - No Fees/Taxes

Description: FYI - If thereís anybody in the Phoenix AZ area thatís interested, I'm considering selling my Bolt, as I'm just not using it much any more, primarily due to some recent physical issues related to prior injuries that are cropping up making it more difficult to ride.  It's a 2018 Yamaha Bolt R Spec, which as most users of this forum know has is the upgraded model with adjustable rear suspension with reservoir gas chambers, pinstriped alloy wheels with tubeless tires and in 2018 came in the hard to find Impact Blue color. It's lightly used by a mature(? ;)) owner with only 5855 original miles (when posted) and always garaged since new. Mine averages 57 MPG in city driving.

Although we all know Yamaha is rated as the most reliable motorcycle brand, out of an abundance of caution (or paranoia), I purchased a 4 year Yamaha Extended Service Plan (Y.E.S.) warranty, that covers the bike until October of 2023. This plan is similar to the original factory warranty, for added peace of mind and is transferrable to a new owner.

I also added the typical Yamaha factory accessories, including engine guards, passenger seat and pegs, tall passenger backrest with pad and a luggage rack. In addition, I just replaced the battery with new Yuasa high performance AGM, which is sealed and requires no maintenance. This bike has been dealer maintained and is in excellent condition.  I switched back to the factory exhaust to be nice to my neighbors, but have the cobra slip on if desired.  I also have the option for either the factory seat or a Saddlemen step up if desired. Comes with the factory owners manual, two original Yamaha keys and even the numbered key tag with the key code. Again, due to some recent physical issues as well as limited space in my garage, I would be willing to part with it for the right amount.

With all the accessories and the extended warranty, there's close to $12,000 invested. Private party sales have no tax in AZ, so other than title transfer and getting your own tag, thereís no other fees and this bike needs nothing. I hold the clean title (no liens) and will sell for $7950. Message me if interested.  Sorry, but I can't make shipping arrangements, so it would need to be a local cash sale.
