Question Testing the waters

So my wife has decided that she is less comfortable on the bike than she used to be. So she only wants to go on very short local rides with me. Since we used to do a lot of weekend day trips...wine tours and the like on the bike, I am finding I am using my bike less and less. Soooo...as many have done in the past, I am thinking of selling my bike.

The question I have, is what is it worth? If it isn't worth a lot due to Polaris shitting on the Victory line than i will give it to my son. But if it is worth some money, I will probably put her up for sale (the bike, not my wife).

Can I get some estimates as to a value for:

2010 Cross Country - Midnight Cherry. 28,800 kms (17,900 miles)

Both tires have <1000km on them.

Exhaust is Rhinehart baffles stuffed into stock cans. I also have a stage 1 muffler that will go with the bike.

There is a scrape on the very bottom edge of one saddle bag where some stuff in my garage fell against it while it was off the bike.you have to get down on your knees to see it.

Bike is located in Southern Ontario.

Forgive the poor quality photos...had to sacrifice quality to get the files small enough to upload.

Thanks for the help.

Tough to answer in part because of you being in Canada. A couple of years ago a mostly stock 2012 Cross Country TOUR was worth about $10k. It is now two years later, yours is not a Tour model, and yours is a 2010. All those factors subtract value. You have low miles which would add a small amount of value. If I had to guess, I would say that in the USA, you would be lucky to get $8000 for it and would likely have to accept $6-7k. This is all off the cuff guess work without any research into KBB or other used bike value sites. The biggest issue is what the used bike market is like where you live in Canada.

Check out what is on AutoTrader or Kijiji, that will give you the ball park figure. From experience, unless its a rake kit or serious custom work, upgrades won't factor in to resale.

I have looked on autotrader...there aren't many for sale.

I have found two similar...My local dealer has one with 51,000km for $11,000.

Another on the west coast with 40,000km for $12500.

With the dollar at $1.30US, $8825 blue book is the same as $11470Can.

My problem, is that these are asking prices...not what they are selling for. That is why I thought I would ask...You guys seem to have a better sense of reality.

Not to rain on your parade, but a savvy buyer will know about the older tranny they had in the pre 11' models which could also impact the selling price. I only say this because I had one same year and color as you. I also had to get the frame kit to be able to use the lock-n-ride trunk I had. Just a couple of things to take into consideration.

You said 1 important thing ....There just aren't many out there for sale. Those out there looking and really want one would be willing to pay more. As far as the earlier transmissions , they're great! Had an 04 for 10 years, never a problem. I think you will find many potential buyers don't even know Polaris gave up on Victory. All comes down to what YOU want to get I wouldn't just give it away. Like you say you can give it to your son.

I wish you luck with the sale of your bike. I tried to sell my 2014 Cross Country, loaded with goodies on Cycle Trader, not even a nibble. I was asking a little over $10K. I ended up taking $6K on a trade and the dealer sold my Vic while I was picking up the new Wing.
