Default What is up

Trying to purchase an X-1, dealer only wants to give me 7700 for my AG 2013 XC with 2200 miles. I could see if it was a new older model I could take it better. But when I am going top of the line they could help me out better than this.

When I traded my '12 highball for my xc, the dealer gave me 7500. Im positive your bike is worth more than 7700, especially with the low mileage.

The dealer is in it to make money. Has overhead, employees, etc to pay for. Used Vics just don't command a premium. Shame for a bike with low miles like that.
Was it the same dealer you got your AG?

NADA Guides shows low retail $10,134 and high retail $13,384. Kelly Blue Book shows trade in value $10,425 and suggested retail value $14,150. I personally would shoot for the KBB value which is still low but depreciation happens.

Just recently a white and gray XC was put up for sale in Tuscon for just $10k. It sold in just a few days.

Two things are going against anyone wanting to sell a bike right now. The season (weather) and economy. Contrary to what obie says; the economy is on the brink of either collapsing or turning around. It has been this way for 7+ years now.

A dealer knows he will potentially have to sit of anything he takes in for an undermined amount of time. His job is not only to make money but to sell new bikes. If he doesn't sell a certain amount of bikes, and many times the market is beyond his control, he will have to take a loss. That isn't a good business model for anyone.

Apparently Victory/Polaris puts some really difficult demands on their dealers which during good times is no big deal but during lean times is a huge deal. Things like keeping a certain number of this model or that model on the floor. They may not even get an option of what color paint jobs they get. I'm sure they can request certain colors but that doesn't mean they will get one of the better selling colors. I know that sounds shallow but it is the way it works.

In another thread someone was saying something about half the Vic dealers giving up on selling Vic's and doing business with more robust selling brands. Business people are not married to any particular brand. They are simply in the business to maximize their profits. It's why most of your sales people are clueless about the bikes they sell. They are sales people and not bikers like one would hope for.

One last thought. The more radical the paint job; the fewer amount of people will be interested in buying it.

Every see a truly amazing and radical paint job on a bike that you appreciated but would never own for yourself? It's kinda like that. The AG paint is a niche paint job. One either loves it or wouldn't have anything to do with it. I personally like it but would not buy one with that paint job at my age. I prefer a more subdued style I guess. Safety wise; the AG is a great paint job! I mean how the heck can anyone not see it!?!

Bottom line; sell it yourself and get the best return. Be prepared to wait until the market is more favorable to you. Be patient. The difference could be up to $5k in what you get for your beautiful AG XC.

You could also consider selling it online and working with someone across the country and ship it. It's done all the time these days. Heck; importer/exporters might even be interested. Don't limit yourself to one market. Think outside the box and good luck with your sale so you can get your X-1!

Sometimes we get lucky and that one person who is looking for just what you have for sale pops up. Not as rare as some people might think but isn't as common as we would like when we are the person selling. It does happen though.

Good luck and please do let us know how it all works out for you.

Only 2200 miles and you want to get rid of it?!? You must hate that bike. Man, when I shell out big bucks for a vehicle, its going to stay with me for a long, long time, so I choose well.

I really dig the Antifreeze Green bikes. Back when Vic came out with them I had a pic of one as my desk top. I'm not a huge flame guy, but they look cool. I think the fellow is rite that said some paint scheme are a bit more uhm niche maybe. I had a Vision I was interested in, but it had some kind of rain drop paint scheme and I just couldn't get past that.
I have to agree try to sell it on your own. Maybe Craig's list first and if it dont go try e-bay. With that low of miles really why do you want to change? 2200 miles is only like what one oil change? X! I have to guess, is that a Magnum? Whats the big difference besides the big wheel front tire?
