Price for 2006 Sportsman 500?

What do you think of this price for the following bike?
2006 Polaris Sportsman 500 EFI loaded. Front and rear bumpers, windshield, winch, hand & thumb warmer,rear passenger seat and foot pegs. 2500 miles, 219 hours. $4200 plus tax. The price is firm.

This is a trade at the local dealership. One owner machine. Clean and well maintained. It comes with a 30 day warranty.

I'm in Ontario. A 2013 500 HO is $5900 plus tax.

NADA offers the following information for Massena NY which is the closest US location to where I am.
Low retail: $3240
Average retail $4260

Kelley Blue Book

The prices above don't take accessories into account.

Here is a picture of the 500 in question.

Not sure why the pic isn't showing up. I'll work on this later.

You may ask why I'm asking what it's worth if I already have the NADA and Kelley Blue Book info. It's because I've never used these to price anything out before so would like your educated (or in some cases, unedumacated) opinions.

I started out looking at new tourings, then the X2 and now the wife said she doesn't even want to go because of all the bugs. So, it's either a new 850 XP EPS or something like this. Obviously, I would prefer the new 850 but I'm not so keen on the price.

I've read enough to know that the 500 is a great bike. What I don't know is if there is anything to be weary about on a 2006.

Your input is appreciated.

That seems like a lot of money. The machine is 7 years old with 2500 miles. About two years ago I bought a 2009 Sportsman 500 HO with a winch/plow with 300 miles on it for $5200.
