Resale value

Was going to trade up my 1 year old XG750 to an XL Low. The local HD shop I bought it from new offered me 40% of what I payed for it. Apparently used XG's are going pretty cheap. Not a happy customer right now...

Yep. My Chapel offered me a whopping $2500 Trade In. And mine has quite a few Mods to it. Some Performance enhancing. Some Useful (Luggage rack, Bags, HD Windshield) Some Cosmetic. I would love to try a 1200T

I just bought a 48. Didn't even bother trying to trade in my 1 year old 750. When I'm less upside down next spring I'll selll it outright and probably still lose some.

Trading stuff in is a game with a lot of these guys, in addition to the supply and demand aspect. They know you want the other bike, so they will lowball you seeing how little they can get for your current bike. The first few years of depreciation will be the worst. Just ride it and enjoy it for a few years, then sell it on.

Can't get much worse than $2500 for a bike that cot $7800 2 years earlier.
