Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin Abs TC Resale Value?
« on: October 11, 2016, 04:49:50 pm »
Hi Guys, what would be a realistic price be to ask for a
Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin Abs TC, with 2,400km on the clock?
Reason I'm asking is that I just received a job offer overseas for 10 months.
Feels like a waste to let my bike stand locked up in a garage while I'm away for such
a long time and pay R800 pm insurance.

Why not just cancel the insurance?  Better to hold onto it for this short time than it is to sell and take the loss.  Ten months is gone before you know it.

Insurance sounds expensive unless you are under 25

Talk to the insurance company and they may reduce the premiums for a bike that is not being ridden

I honestly do not know, but the best is to advertise it on WD's, OLX and Gumtree for maybe R10K less than what you have paid and concider any reasonable offers then. That is just my suggestion.

I am a yea away, I have locked my bike inside my flat and is still paying my R411.00 pm insurance (just incase)
10 or 12 months is not long, before you realize you are back and try and buy a new bike....it is going to cost you way more.
So I am holding on to my bike

R147500 would be my guess- any more and a new one would be a realistic alternative. My view only  :sip:
Surely if I was obsessed with motorcycles I’d have more than one; no two; no three; no no, four… ah, never mind…

your bike and s similar to demo's. Look at what they go for.
Any who, getting a new bike when you are back at increased prices plus what you loose on selling yours, is the difference you need to weigh up against losing r8000 insurance costs (which you can reduce)
