Scarabsport said:Food for thought: I see a disturbing downward trend with all these prices. These 2006 MVs at $17,900 mean those bikes will be showing up used in the relatively near future at $16,000, and it means the leftover 05s are even now worth what? maybe $16,500. All this means the low mile '05 I am trying to sell is worth maybe ???? 14? That means my MV cost me about $6 per mile to own. I'm sure glad I don't have to sell the MV but at the same time my '06 gsxr 1k depreciated maybe $700 compared to almost $10K for the MV. Actually the MV depreciation is in excess of what I paid for the gixxer?
But look at the bright side. At these prices MV will go bankrupt again because nobody will want to buy an 07 for 23k or watever and our MVs will then increase in value because of scarcity and we will all have collector items.
Sorry I kind of hijacked the thread, but at $17,900 you should definitely buy one to ride and maybe one to wrap in plastic and store for 10 years. I wonder what I could get a crated '05 for?
