My 2015 is just sitting there, low miles new battery, new back tire and back brake upgraded to 2016.
It has an ugly loud aftermarket horn. Otherwise perfect.
The Streets have changed and gotten so much better, I wonder what kind of value it might truly have.
Are the 2015's now thought of as really bad or inferior?
I can't ride anymore due to a destroyed left wrist.
So: 2015's still considered decent?
Thx!

I just paid $5,800 for my 2017 XG750A Street Rod with 3,200 miles. That included EVERYTHING and delivery to my house.

Unfortunate these Street models do not seem to hold value - Good for the buyer but bad for the seller...

Good job this will be my last bike then, having said that I have never worried about the resale value of my bikes - never mind what 'book price' is or what dealers will pay or sell for - a bike is worth what someone is prepared to pay for it. I see many bikes for sale and all the extra's are shown, usually with the price it cost to buy them when in reality no-one gives a toss - if they want the bike they will buy it. I have never ever had a problem selling a used bike of any make because I have always looked after them and have never been in a hurry to sell them. ;)

my 2015 750 was my first large cc bike after stop riding for 30 years. here's my last 6 months personal observation, at least the options of bikes available in my country.

I would put about 10-15 bikes street 750 available in my country. they did not bring in the 500. and new importer did not bring in the street after 2017. FYG, Street 750 brand new is selling here at USD14,200 (yeah, incl.all the **** tax/duties)

Was looking at used 883 or 48 as next upgrade, but don't see the huge difference.

1. with our tropical heat, would need liquid cool over air cool
2. in terms of power, does not really make a difference as i don't do drag racing, its sufficent for me now.
3. i love the 750 as its very agile in our traffic jam condition, most times can squeeze in between cars like the many scooters/cub bikes.
4. I join a Harley Group which 80% owns glide type, 19% 883/48 and so far am the only 750 !
5. Was looking at adventure bike, leaving aside 1200cc and abv which is too wide to manoeuvre, cb500x, kawa versys 650 scare would be boring for me (to modify the exhaust loud sounds silly to other bikers on an adventure bike)
6. Was looking also at Kawa Vulcan S (more power) but its just not a Harley !
7. Cafe Style, Triumph T100 could be my next bike, but maybe another 10 more years.

The abv are based on used bikes, within my budget, after all the search looking for upgrades/downgrades, I still think my 750 suits me very well.

I own a XG750.
There is a barely 2017 for sale on my dealers lot for $6399.
I just bought a BMWR1250GT for longer rides features and comfort, but I’m still keeping the XG750 because it’s so fun and nimble.
