    So tell me What's My Bike Worth

    I am not talking book value, I am talking straight up sale price where the bike would sell lol

    I have a 2011 GSXR-600 completely stock with about 25xx miles on it.

    I was put in a financial hole due to a significant other, I put an end to that and need to dig out now.

    I paid $9900 and the dealer would give me $8,000 trade, so I am wondering just how hurt will I be if I try to sell it outright?

    I'd say you could sell it for 7.5.

    The "asking" prices on craigslist right now for all 2011 gsxr's(600,750, 1k) looks to be falling between high 8's and high 9's. Most 600's and 750's in the 9k range, saw a 2011 1k with 6k miles listed for $8800.

    Re: So tell me What's My Bike Worth

    I'd go with the dealer and get the $8k. You would not have the head ache of selling. It is probably possible to get $500 more privately, but would require time...

    Re: So tell me What's My Bike Worth

    the 8k was for trade not for them to buy the bike. I am thinking of selling the bike to get back on my feet financially so a trade is out of the question. Just was not sure if I could get more than 8k selling it outright or not.
    I would think I could because dealers always try to get you on the trade in value but I don't know that much about bikes and trade/sale values which is why I am asking here trying to get some insight as to how to price it for
    a sale.

    Re: So tell me What's My Bike Worth

    I also owe about 6k for the bike so I'd like to try to get as much as I can while also being a good deal for the buyer.

    Re: So tell me What's My Bike Worth

    BTW, how did you like the GSX-R600 as compared to your previous CBR600RR? They are similar purpose bikes. I have ridden a CBR600RR previously, but never a GSXR-R600.

    I personally like the GSXR better due to the seating position, this is comparing the 2011 CBR to the 2011 GSXR only. I felt more part of the bike when riding the GSXR and with the CBR it felt like I was an addition just lying on top of the bike

    One of the hard lesssons you will learn: brand new vehicles decline in value about 20% the moment you drive it out of the dealership. Now with autumn fast approaching that ain't going to help you either. I'd post it for 9 grand and grab anything above 8 grand. Things will get worse before they get worser...therefore dump it before winter or you might have to sustain further losses.

    If you do not plan to keep it, advertise it for sale now.

    Thanks for the information. I will give MOM a call and setup an apt to bring the bike for evaluation

    Re: So tell me What's My Bike Worth

    Dealer said they would give me 8k for the bike and also 400 credit for buying my next bike. Not bad that means they cut me a $1400 check which I can use to title the trailer and sell that too.
    They only want to give 1k for the trailer so it won't be sold to them lol

    headache route - take johnnyV's post, list it higher than it's worth, list it for a long time, and wait for someone dumb enough to pay you more than it's worth

    easy route - take the dealer's offer

    This brings back memories of this thread:

    I won't say I told you not to buy a new bike, but a lot of other people surely did.
