What is a R1200c worth?
« on: May 05, 2013, 09:40:07 am »
Hi all, I need to put a price to a R1200C. It doesn't have a book value any more and they are so scarce in Nam it is difficult to compare

2004 model, 16 000km, spotless, never dropped or scratched at all, full BMW service record, screen and brand new BMW leather luggage with frame, mounted but never used. Spent its life in a garage, never stood in sunlight or rain.

I was thinking around 70-75k? Used bikes in this class are almost non-existent here so people tend to pay a bit more. 

This bike is in mint condition, but sadly it has to go in order to get a bike with a sidecar for my dad. Due to a serious back injury he now needs a bike that stays upright by itself on order to keep riding

Well, it cant be more than a 2004 1200GS.
Trust that little voice in your head that says 'Wouldn't it be interesting if...'; And then do it.

On gumtree they go for 70k+, but none were in the same condition.

Here in GP they are starting to go for quite a premium. I'd expect to pay at least 80 for one in the same condition, colour and mileage. I wouldn't let it go if I were you, they'll be collectable in a few years

I feel the same way, unfortunately I have to sell it in order to get the sidecar.

There is very little tar roads to ride here, and as I spent all my riding time on gravel, I would rather keep the GSA, and start looking out for a 690

If you're a JB fan?

Expect to have difficulties to sell this bike especially since it's in good condition and you (probably) want serious money for it.
They did never really sell when they were build, a bike with an identity crisis produced past market demand, neither pretty nor a technlogical marvel :-\
Good luck with the sale. Let's hope you find some one who looks exactly for this bike and pays a good price.

Just because you don't like them doesn't mean nobody does. The fact that they sold badly initially means there are very few good examples to be had. It will be rare and yes, it was in James Bond. Who isn't a fan?

I know of a couple of people who were offered very good prices for theirs but declined  :deal:

I will not justify my very diverse taste in bikes to anyone, nor do I expect any one else to do so.

My original post was not and advert for a bike for sale, I already have 2 serious buyers, which is saying a lot considering the size if the bike market here. Both are cash buyers, I just wanted a price that will be fair to buyer and seller. I did not want to ask too little or on the other hand try to bedonner a fellow biker.

It is a great bike and I like this than most HD's or others in this class, i know it is in good condition but it is 9 years old and I would be happy to pay about 55 to 60, but in the 70's I think a bit to much,

My 2c worth......

Great bike

Pretty much a 'niche' bike. Worth a lot to the right buyer, but people not queueing to buy. Wasn't the best of sellers new either. just my 2c

If you find them in this condition, colour and mileage for less than 60 let me know, I'll take 2  ;)

Yes, I'd also think mid 60'thousands

I have a friend who bought the fully faired CL version, and they tend to go for a bit cheaper actually
he will never sell it, because his wife will leave him if he does. She loves that couch.

maybe you can pm Vaalbaas, he has one in his man-cave. Maybe he can tell you what he paid

Good sale. Both for buyer and seller. A mate of mine bought his R1200C 5 years back for R55 000. Taking inflation, devaluation and availability into account should bring you to about R70 000 + (obviously for bike in condition as stated).
