Price of new LC
« on: March 30, 2014, 09:14:00 pm »
Hi guys!

I need to know what the LC sells for, i beleive there were a price increase??

The reason i'm asking is because i'm thinking of selling mine due to a bad back and i'll be having a operation in the near future, bummer i know...

Mine's done 6000km, bought November 2013
Red
Side stand footpiece
Handguards
Bar raisers
Givi trekker top box
Wider footpegs
SW motech crashbars

It's not the full spec variant, got ABS, heated grips, Tyre pressure monitor, on board computer.
Don't have cruise control, ride modes, traction control.
Not fitted with steering dampner.

Bike's very well looked after, and not abused in any way, spotless condition.

I'm basically trying to establish a fair price before advertising.

This is such a reluctent sale, don't know if i should cry and scream or scream and cry...

I think new price on full spec bike is around 184K
Yours i think sold for about 150K, right?
Without all gadgets that the new bike come with i suspect you will have to take a bit of a knock
Have seen 2013 bikes with either LED spec or touring spec for around 150K
So I would say between 135- 145K, if my assumption on your bike purchase price is correct

Thanx BennNevis

I think i'm gonna try for R149 000  taking in account the R10000 excessories i installed and condition of the bike, i've ridden it so very gently, the headers hanen't even changed colour yet...

Thanx Draadwerk.

In all fairness i should probably move this to the "for sale" section, but as stated i'm stil tryin to stablish a fair price for my bike.

Maby i should just take it back to Donford and ask them to sell it on my behalf.

But in the interim a bit of exposure on the forum wouldn't hurt.

I'll be asking R145000, considering it's only 6 months old and in showroom condition, taking the new price into consideration and as i understand the base model wouldn't be available again. Also the R10000 i've spend on excessories.

So pls guys, spread the word, i'm not going the Gumtree route only to receive "cash offers"of R85000 at 1:00 in the morning...

Like i said, it's allready very difficult for me to accept that i'm probably done with biking alltogether because of medical reasons, this was my 33th new bike i've owned over the last 20 years, and probably the best one aswell.

Hi

With the R10000 extra,s I would ask for R155000 sold my full house back to the dealer which he  promptly sold for R155900 without any extra,s    you can always drop the price should you not get any offers

Hi Coles

Just bare in mind it's not the full spec model, but i think R145000 is obtainable...

Agree - Park on the dealers floor. They sold my Explorer as well. Easiest way; if it was older and more available but there is shortage on demo and second hand models. Best of luck with the sal as well as the unfortunate back injury
