Depends where you live and your DH's job.
We got one for $4,000 (a steal) and DH used it a lot. It cost $94 a month in insurance, but he certainly saved that in gas., BUT it became less handy as my DH's job changed. He was constantly needing to bring luggage in/out work and his hours were crazy. So it sat a lot. We never thought it would but he couldn't carry his gear on it. We sold it this year because the savings didn't outweigh the maintance. If he buys new and drives correctly he shouldn't have much upkeep. But driving at high speeds and being a bit wreck less can wear the tires terribly. So that's something to consider! My dad had a motorcycle when I grew up and so did I. Lol. So fun!
