    Value?

    I think I'll advertise my 63 plate RR early next year, wonder where to price it? Mine from new, 11k miles, excellent condition, no trackdays, never used in the wet. Full Bmw history, just serviced by them. I was thinking around 8.5k? I don't need to sell, just fancy a change.

    Over 40 views and no opinions? Just to add it's got a BMW Akra can, a tinted Puig screen and new chain/sprockets.

    The problem here, and it is often the case, is the value to you is more than what the bike is intrinsically worth to someone else privately or to trade. You had the bike from new, know it inside out, modded it with your preferences.

    I would get a px value against what you want to change it for, then work back from that.

    A dealer that would have traded it straight out offered me 7600.

    Get on eBay and get a feel for what they're going for. At this time of year private buyers want a bargain whereas dealers, especially in December and January are more likely to give you a better trade in value to secure a sale.

    Not a problem for me to wait for next spring. If I couldn't get 8k for it then I'd probably run it for another year. Just fancy a 1198S for the looks and noise.

    So two things, stick it on eBay anyway, all you'll lose is the listing fee if it doesn't sell plus you'll get a good idea of market value. Second thing, a mate of mine had an 1198s a few years ago and had to sell it after 6 months as it was so uncomfortable at anything other than high speed, try before you buy as very different to the S1K.
