Does the price for used bikes seem a silly?

Just happen to be browsing what used bikes are going for...


Farkin rediculous, at least locally, especially for Yammers, and not just the dealers either. And Im not talking 2 or 3 year old bikes, I'm talking about 5-6 year old R1s, and Gixxers asking 6-7K+!!

Just seems high for anything with an 'R'

I guess it's a good time to sell if you're thinking.

It seems that most of what is listed is by dealers these days. They have to make profits and therefore there are markups. Also you have to take into consideration the mileage, condition, maintenance, and all other factors including the fact that we are in the swing of the riding season.
Buy when not in riding season and deals are everywhere.

I actually think that the prices are cheap right now. I mean there were 2 1000RRs on here for next to nothing, an 07 ZX-6R, Repsol 1000RR, all for excellent prices. In fact I have been looking at purchasing something else just because the 749s are such a bargain right now.

When the manufacturers raised the prices on the 06 models it screwed up the pricing on used bikes. Everything went up.

Actually, I believe a lot of it having to do with lifting certain export restrictions on medium-displacement bikes (600cc etc). Many of the used 600s were being exported to Mexico, where the prices were much higher than here. The demand drove the prices here, and for what I understand last year was a good year to sell a used 600.
