Stunning bike, has absolutely everything. Not often you get a fully loaded bike always something you have to buy. Arrow exhaust and a bigfoot  added bonus. Good luck with the sale.

Morning, seems to be plenty views but nobody’s making contact, is it too far away or priced too highly ? I would welcome some feedback, open to offers , thanks.

Hallo Jim, unfortunatly, for you, I bought myself already last year a tiger1200 so thats why no reaction from me. But I think you’ll find a buyer for this fantastic bike. Give it a bit of time, if you have. The season has yet to begin.
Good luck with the sale.

FWIW I had mine (xr, no topbox but outback panniers and lots of other extras and 9.5k miles) up for 6,700 on here few weeks ago, no interest at all here but sold via ebay for just under, so basically you are prob on the high side hth.

You say you are selling due to an upgrade, did you try and part ex with a dealer? That would of given you a good indication of what the market might bear for the bike. He is going to mark up obviously and will have commitments to honour warranty, fit for purpose consumer regs etc but it is a good starting point a little but not much over what he was offering, say £500. You could always pretend to be looking at a new bike and get a trade-in value with your nearest anybrand dealer.

Some people calculate based on: 20% value loss in the first year then 10% a year after that (to a certain point). There is no point in adding in farkles or any free giveaways or big discounts when you first bought it, the market knows! I think you are a bit rich for a 6 year old bike even though the mileage is low. Personally I would top out very max £6.5K on this but wouldn't be surprised with sub £6K offers. I'm no dealer or expert and the guy with £7,200 might be just around the next corner but who knows?  :261:  While it is still wet and windy there are not many buyers out there right now either.

Most of the people on here already own one. I always look to see what people are selling because I'm nosey about how much they want.
Im at the stage where my 2015 bike is worth more to me than anyone would want to pay for it

Thanks for the input guys, some very good points well made, maybe aiming a bit on the highside so have decided to reduce to £6750.00 Ono.

I sold by trade to dealer in Dec 2018..my 2014 Gen 1 Tex with 20,000Km (12k miles)on clock. Same specs as yours..but no topbox or foggies. I got NZ14k..or about 7,000BP at that time. dealer listed at $16.5k...about 8k pounds and sold in 4 months...for a bit less I think. I'd say you are still on the higer side for a private sale. It seems these bikes lose a lot on resale..damn it. But best to start a bit higher and agree to drop.

A dealer near me in Florida has a very decent 2013 model with some extras added on which has been for sale for at least the past 6 months. I noticed recently he marked it down to $6500.

My buddy is interested in it but I told him to wait until it hits $5000. I don’t think it’ll be much longer!  These are not so easy to sell for some reason.

That’s why I plan to convert mine into a lawn ornament when she quits chugging.
Ride safe, and ride often!
