Going to sell it ... what's it worth?

Currently have my 2007 F4 1000 R in the shop getting ready to sell (getting a new fuel pump).

Bike is truly mint (not one scratch or noticeable blem), with 6500 adult miles. red/silver, has race ECU, pipes (all factory parts) plus all stock parts. I'm the only owner. Michelin dual compound tires are over the 6 year limit but have only 200 miles on them. All recall upgrades done. New sprockets and chain.

Before I advertise (once back in my garage), what's it worth?? I see people advertising bikes for $8k that I don't think are as nice. Looking to just get a fair value.

Cheers!!

An 07 1000R sold in Alabama about a month ago for 5700. Iirc it had <4k miles and also aftermarket and stock pipes. I think you can still find it on a cached Craigslist page.

The USA market always seems lower priced than ours in UK. However, if crap bikes are selling for 8K (or 7 and a half-ish after negotiation) you'd have to put yours up at the same or a bit more. Of course it all depends on what the market will bear, but as we know, there is always a buyer prepared to pay a premium for a quality product and yours is one such bike.

Remember though, that many have come to regret selling!

Kelley Blue Book value is $7,985. Of course that doesn’t take into consideration any mods.

Dont. why? you owned her brand new since 2007
Get a wall anchor and hang that beauty against the wall. Make it a piece of the family for generations to come.

Prices netherlands are bit higher than USA it seems. 9K for 312RR with 14.000km and a f4 1000r 7K with 35.000km on odometer.
Yours is in mint condition, I'd say 9K for yours and try to get 8-8.5K for it.

I think of selling mine from time to time but then I know I will regret it so it just stays in the garage. Is it reasonable to think these bikes will ever appreciate in value? Mine is a 2005 F4ago w/ 10k miles.

Of course it will .... one day.


But then you will have missed out on riding it all those years, probably will not need the money (and in any event it is never going to be worth a life changing amount) and will have loads of competition from other fools who have locked theirs in the garage for years rather than riding.


Bikes are for riding. If you want an investment, look elsewhere.

I have one also and have had the same thoughts. I bought it originally because I liked it, not because I thought I would make any money on it. But I am getting too old to ride it for any length of time these days so it just sits with less than 3k mi on it. The overall bike mkt is 1/2 of what it was in 2008, with sales being flat as a pool table since then. The sportbike market is even worse and this, combined with MV's increasingly poor presence and therefore support in the US makes these bikes a tough sell even on a good day.

So, either ride it, hang it on the wall or put it in the living room as an expensive piece of art and as perhaps a monument to my economic stupidity.

Maybe, but just having these bikes is pleasure of ownership in itself.

Bikes as an investment has been covered many times on this and other forums. It is a very poor return taking into account insurance and other expenses. However, in my case, to merely have an F4 in my lounge room to ride as infrequently as I please, is pleasure in itself , and a tangible asset that offers a return a shade over bank interest or pension fund.
