How much does a RockShox recon RL fork cost?

For example a Rockshox Recon RL (entry level 100mm fork) would already be a huge upgrade and cost “only” 200-300$ brand new. Check if you can get one with air spring and rebound setting. Make sure the new fork has (about) the same travel (eg. 100mm), same wheel spacing and wheel mount (though axle or quick release).
