Good luck selling the Stelvio, I had one for over three years (a long time for me) and loved it  :467:

Best of luck to you. I wasn't an owner when you started this thread but it was an interesting read.  :821:

Well, the Stelvio went three weeks ago and I am now an ex-motorcyclist !  :158:
Don't  know how the values of the XC hold up but I knew almost from the beginning that Guzzi values did not hold up as well as the BMW GS I had previously and that when I finally sold it would be a bit painful.

When I sold the BMW it was 10yrs old and got £3.5K (trade-in) compared to £10K when new.
With the Stelvio I got £5.5K at 7yrs old (private sale) compared to £14K when new.
Both covered the same annual mileage, were in excellent condition and had FSH. Most accessories were removed prior to sale and sold separately.

All the best and ride safe!  :821:
