Default Highball holding its Value?

I was just perusing the CycleTrader, and for grins I ran a search for the Victory HighBall,
To my surprise there were only a couple around ten grand regardless of year. The most for a highball was 17 grand but it was a fully custom show bike. Most were between 14 and twelve grand. It seems to me that this bike is holding its value pretty well.
It doesn't matter much to me because I bought the bike to ride it not to sell it but what do you think?

Does it seem these bikes are holding thier value better than the other models? What about other brands?

That's what they are listed for, but are they selling for that price

Not in Alberta.... The market is flooded with them. You can buy a one year old Highball here for $12,000 CAD or $9000 USD. I found 2 with less than 4000km for that price...

I imagine most are. Most people don't haggle much on bikes with the dealers. They have a pretty narrow margin so they don't move much. If anything, they may give you a break on accessories.

Resale is ALWAYS going to be a supply and demand equation. Don't EVER expect to find ANY mass produced product commanding a premium unless there are very few of them.

Now, if this was a anniversary bike or a Ness or any of the other "limited edition" bikes where only a few hundred were made then the odds would be MUCH better for them to have retained their value but when there are literally THOUSANDS sold a year over multiple years...welll




It's not just any victory.... It's MY Victory!

Interesting, is that an Alberta thing? They are rare here in SoCal.
A dealer may have one but the mega store nearest to me doesn't . In fact he has a XCT for 23,000, a jackpot for 20,000, and a couple Vegas at 17,000 each. But that's it.

Bujee... That's ridiculous money for used bikes. We should start importing them down to So Cal...

My dealer was selling new XCT bikes for $19k. That's the price they said from the start. You didn't even have to haggle for that price. Not old ones either...2014 CCT was $19k in the middle of last year. At your dealer's prices, he has lots of wiggle room.

Default Canadian 2013 High ball pricing

I just picked up a Victory High Ball 2013 with 2342 km and 15 months remaining on the warranty . It came with a new set of soft bags (Talisman Motorcycle Luggage) and the lockable victory bag mounts , the victory passenger seat and passenger pegs and but not least a set of Bassani pro street pipes and the original factory one's for $10,500 CDN = $8384 USD . I am happy with the price I paid

Those were new bikes. But I agree we should import bikes from Canada. Perhaps bikes are cheaper in Canada because insurance is so expensive?
