    Aprilia RSV1000

    I've heard the resale value of the RSV's suck so with the question I'm about to ask, forget book value
    What's a 2001 RSV1000 worth with 6k miles, flat black and "said" to be in excellent condition?
    Would anyone be intersted in a bike like this if I happen to get ahold of one?
    Thanks

    first question I'd ask is "Did it come flat black from the factory?"

    if so, the follow question would be "Woulda ya straight up trade for a 2000 zx6r? never been raced!"

    So if I got this bike and said i'd sell it for $5,500, it'd make for a quick sale?

    Pete, you couldn't pay me to own a kawasaki

    5500 is about it's value
    It's an awesome machine but hard to sell,
    if your buying it to turn it over try and get it cheaper

    aprilias are hard to sell.
    took me forever to get rid of the falco... it was tuned to match a mille for power and it was much sexier!

    Great bike but you'll need to wait for the right buyer to get that amount. Listing it on eBay motors is a good idea with bikes like that because it is more likely someone who REALLY wants a priller finds it.

    Post it on the for sale section in apriliaforums as well, many bikes sold there. Aprilia is not the right bike to try to make a profit on, just ask all the dealers that have dropped the brand

    Aprilia RSV1000

    Yeah, I think I'm going to pass on this deal. Everything I've seen and read says the resale value sucks. The guy wanted to trade it for my KTM450sx, I think it's going to be easier to sell the KTM than the Aprilia... and I don't want another sportbike for myself

    Thanks for the help everyone

    No idea, he just saw my KTM advertised on another site and asked if I'd be interested in a trade
