Default xc used selling price

I have kicked around selling my 2011 xc it has 2500 miles on it the color is white and silver and it is in excellent condition. Does anyone know what price I might be looking at getting. There is a local shop that offered me 14000 I would assume that it would bring more than that.

It retails new for $18999 in that color combo, right? Demo ride discounts and military discounts would knock it down $2K so people could (in theory) buy a new one today for $16,999. Knock a couple thou off for the miles and they are only a thou low. You also have to realize that they would need to make a profit reselling it.

probably doesn't need to be pointed out but you could get more $'s if you sell it directly to an individual instead of wholesaling it to a dealer. Note that if you did add the trunk the current value could probably be around $16K to $17K. Why are you selling a basically new bike?

Default xc used price

For those of you who are wondering why I would be selling an almost new bike I have always traded for a new model around every 6 months to a year If I was lucky enough to sell this I would be going on my 78th motorcycle. I know I have a sickness. The motorcycle is garage kept and has a stage 1 kit plus big mouth exhaust tips.The bike is in new condition,taking offers.

For those of you who are wondering whats next I'm almost afraid to say,but I was looking at a new 2012 goldwing or a new bmw six cylinder gt more than likely it will be a new goldwing. Don't think I want to be married to BMW. My brother has a wing and after riding it 8hrs to new orleans It was amazing smooth, quiet and very comfortable and plenty of power what a radio system surround sound.

After 77 bikes you should be telling us how to sell or trade a 6 month to 1 year old bike without losing your @$$. It suprises me that when you were offered $14K that you didn't already know that you would be lowballed; that dealer needs to get at least 10% more than what he/she pays you - anything less isn't worth the hassle!

You could get more out of it if you are willing to wait. But on the other hand the 2012's get released at the end of July. As soon as the 12's hit the dealers the 11's will go on sale. If new 11's cost less that makes your used 11 worth less.

Your bike should be worth $15-16K without a trunk and $16-17K with a trunk. If you added accessories such as CB take 50% off the price off the accessories and add that to your price.

Assuming not everyone is gong to get the demo truck discount and/or the military discount and assuming you have at least 2 accessories start at $17K. Subtract 10% off the total and make $15,300 your asking price when you talk to whomever it was that offered $14K. Do the same math with the exception of subtracting 15% rather than 10% and your minimum should be $14,500. The math could come out differently depending on your accessories.

The price of 15000 to 16000 is kinda were I would like to be by the way I also have a brand new polaris xm attachment still in the box that should maybe go to sweeten the deal. This yr alone I have played around with buying and trading 5 pretty new bikes was able to pick up a 2009 screamin eagle springer for 16.500.00and take it to the dealer they wrote me a check for 20.000.00 not a bad day. As I said before I have a motorcycle sickness. My live in girlfriend would rather have me doing this than hanging out the local bar.

Sounds like you're an old hand at this game so you know you'll make the most off a personal sale. Thankfully you understand that you are going to get new price. I've seen in the past (and could now in any classifieds) where people try to get top dollar in private sales. It's rarely worked; the only time it has is when the seller has something unique or hard to find. This happened a lot with the new beetles when they were first released; people would buy them then turn right around and sell them for several thousand more - they were hard to find so people would pay. In most cases though dealers can get more because they help people find financing. Too many people are naive and don't know that the best rate they can find is the rate they find.

If you have'nt figured it out yet there are classifieds on this website and 3 other Victory websites that I know of. There's also several online bike classifieds that realistic people have had much luck with.

If I was in your boat I'd post it on EBay with a $15,500 minimum or $17,500 Buy it Now Delivered. Delivery within 1000 miles would cost about $600 so you could make out.

You'd have to find someone without internet skills for those prices.

$17,999 gets you a brand new 2011 with trunk.
