    model and demand does not match. demand is too low keeping in mind the model and it means that bike is not in a good condition. rebuilding a suzuki i wont recommend it. kiun k agar original parts se complete engine banta hai means new head cylinder and everything new from suzuki showroom, not jugaar from local ustaads, to make this bike like brand new will cost 30k. so its better to add these amounts and get a new model bike in good condition. baqi 7k mai bhe engine pura ban jata hai.

    Which city is the bike and you ?

    Low demand can be cause of the city and may be the bike is in fair condition.

    According to the bro who said that its engine rebuilt will cost around 30k and lets suppose I buy this bike in 30k with some negotiation then the bike as a whole will cost me 60k with 5k on cosmetic changes equals 65k , will it be a good deal ?

    sir 65k mai you'll get a 2011 model in very good condition. engine proper build up from suzuki showroom costs 30 k which will make it a brand new engine. ban 7k mai bhe jata hai with chinese parts. thats why i recommended not to go for it. baqi agar chotay chotay kaam hue tou wo tou buhat less cost mai hojaen ge

    There is a thread where @vickytulla is recommending for not to buy RP - Storm, because no after service and no parts in the coming days.

    Will post the link once I find it.
