I'm going to blame the lack of interest on this bike on Jorge Lorenzo! Coming in 15th in Germany isn't going to help sell the R1!


(Really surprised this is still for sale actually. Crossing fingers for you)

The reality is the used bike market is depressed due to the availability of easy credit for new bikes.

The 59k miles might also be working against it and the asking price.  Buyers of used bikes are notoriously cheap....until they sell it themselves then they want top dollars for it!  LOL!  It's probably easier to trade it in for an Adventure Bike.  My guess is you'll get $4k on trade in.

All true but not even an offer I find odd.

Just for kicks, bring it to a dealership and ask what you will get on trade for say, a Yamaha Super Tenere.  You have to play the game though and go through the motions of filling out forms, but at least you will get a good idea of what's possible.  You may be pleasantly surprised.  What I mean is you may get more than you think and possibly match the best you can get by selling it privately.  This is especially effective if you are of a "mature" age and they know you are serious and not just some first time buyer. 

Having said that, your bike is a good one and there are many out there who want it.  But they're probably looking at their cash flow and thinking......the younger demographics which this bike appeals to aren't always in a good financial position here in SoCal....what with the price of rent and stagnant wages for today's millenials

A Triumph dealer just gave my friend $5k for his 2007 CBR1000 with 4K miles and having been crashed at a track day. He traded it in for a Tiger 800XR. Not that this is an apples to apples comparison. Just thought I throw that out there.

You almost have to give away a used bike nowadays especially if it has a lot of miles. My Ď07 VFR800 with 52k miles is probably worth about $1500 if I wanted to sell it quick. $2000 if I were patient and even then thatís reaching. Iím better off trading it in.

2k-2250 imo.

My 2002/38k mi VFR sold like a hot cake for 2k.

Good for you!  That bike was in exceptional shape. 

Mine is at that point where it makes no sense to sell it for money.  Better just to keep it or replace.
