I am toying with the idea of stepping up to a new Blk/Slv 08 1000rr.

I've talked to several places and their price for the new bike seems somewhat
reasonable but thier offers for my low mileage mint 07 1000rr have been horrendous.

What do you think would be a good trade-in value for this bike. It has never been dropped or dinged etc. It truley is in mint condition and I am the original
owner.

Give me an idea.

07 Blk/Slv 1000rr, 1900 miles
Arkrapovic Carbon Slip-On Exhaust
Proton Front Signals
Clear Alternatives Rear Signal
Signal Relay Flasher (to correct fast signals)
Puig Standard Dark Smoke Windscreen (added since pics were taken)
Ezeran Plate Mount
Factory Honda Extended Warranty - 5 years

I love it. I am looking for that exact bike. Man if i could find you i would buy it off you. I have a 2008 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R i am trying to sell or trade in, because i want the bike that you have lol. How much do you owe on it? If you want to sell it i will talk to my bank and try to buy it if you ever want to go that route.

i thought about selling my 07 black also. i figured trade-in would be roughly 5-6K and i wouldN'T do that. mines got a few mods and it would take $8500 before i would even consider selling it. i've talked myself out of selling or trading for at least 2 more years. it's got PLENTY of life left and i'd rather put the couple thousand i would lose in trading towards parts. 2 more years it should still be worth 5-6K and then i'd use that to put down on a NEW bike, and sell some of the parts i've put on it.

Your Silver bike looks Great! very Clean.

ya, i hear ya. the local places here (actually probably most car/bike dealerships) are only interested in what you owe, which in my case is lower than what the bike is actually worth, at least worth to me.

i'm not hell bent on selling it but will if i think an offer is reasonable, which the local places were unable to come close to.

i figure with the low miles, mint condition, 5yr warranty plus the premium after-market stuff it's worth more than your typical used 07.

I bought an excellent condition 07 with 1100 miles a month ago for $7k. I had found dealers selling leftover 07's with 0 miles for $8600. You might do better to sell the exhaust separately if you kept the factory muffler and list the bike on e-bay, would hope to get at least $7500 for a bike that clean... good luck.

My question is, if you never ride your bike (only 1,900 miles???) why would you want to spend money on a newer more expensive bike?

I bought the bike last year in 08 (July). It was a left over 07. Thus the low miles.

Also, not to rain on your parade but aftermarket bits and pieces don't add much to the sale price of your bike. It sucks but a $1,000 exhaust system doesn't add $1,000 to your asking price. You're better off pulling off all the goodies, replace them with the stock stuff, and still sell your clean bike for every bit as much as you would've with all the upgrades.

I figured that was the case, so I wasn't trying to be tacky. But seriously, you've practically got a brand new bike. Why the need for a new bike? The newer generation is nice but unless you're a pro I'm not sure most of us could really maximize the difference between the two bikes.

I know that to be true to some extent, at least more so when it comes to dealer trades.

But informed private party buyers know what the cost will be if they want the same aftermarket stuff added to the bike afterwards. Akra's, Protons and Clear Alt's are not cheap. So if that is their preference then it's a win/win.

Also, as far as my 2 local Honda shops, they seem to like to throw on aftermarket crap to their brand new floor bikes, and they seem to sell those fine as is, marked up for the additional junk on the bikes.

i'm no pro that is for sure. i took a 08 out for a test ride this weekend and was blown away by the way it feels and handles. i didn't really get on it but you can tell right away it feels much more nimble.

the looks have grown on me, last year the reason i got the 07 was because i could not get over the 08's design. that was my deciding factor.

i could have test rode the 08 last year but my point of refernce would have been skewed pretty bad. i went to to the 07 from a F4i so that's a big step. if i would have test rode the 07 and 08 last year i probably would not have been able to discern as big of a difference than i can now between the 2.

like i said, i'm not hell bent on selling the 07, but if a reasonable offer comes along, i'll go with it and get an 08 and not look back. i kept my F4i for 6 years and planned on keeping the 07 indefinetly as long, but the 08 felt incredible.
