Looking for some input. After several weeks on Craigslist and a couple here, I havenít had so much as a nibble on this bike. Am I asking too much? I think I have it too low, but I donít know the current state of the market. Thanks
I bought Sierra in mid-May, in High Point NC, for $3700. She's a 2016 650LT. Spotless and bone stock at the time I bought her, with mileage similar to yours, and new Michelin Pilots. At the time, I was also looking at brand new leftover stock offered for under $6k.
It's not so much that you are asking too much. It's simply that bikes do not sell for their proper intrinsic value these days, despite what sellers may ask on e-prey, or what Kelly Blue Book may say.
BTW, KBB says 4460 trade and 6470 retail. There's a tendency for private sellers to ask retail. You are not retail. People are willing to pay more at a dealer.
The bottom line is: To sell a bike these days, you have to bend over and smile.
Especially in the Fall... which is but ten days away.
If it were me, which I know it ain't, I would keep the LT, on the theory that it ain't worth selling, and got score a KLR for the dual sport. You can prolly buy a KLR for less than the beating you will take selling this. Multiple bikes is a good thing. That way you have a bike for each purpose.
