XR650R had big legend tax then people discovered 690's, 500's and other bikes with e-start now I reckon they dropped a bit in value. Flavour of the week is now KTM 990's it seems.

I doubt this is true at all. The 650R still commands a higher price because they are not easy to come by.. 990's are a dime a dozen and you can pick one up anywhere.

But give the 990 another decade and then lets see the mint ones come out on the market and it will be a different story

I also don't think there are as many guys buying these legend bikes.. there used to be massive hype and legend tax given to the Honda Africa Twin.. after the new one came out that legend tax dropped, now the old Africa Twin is just an old Africa Twin and I think we seeing the same with KTM. Their new models are so good that who wants a 990?

What do I know, I bought a Honda that not only has no legend tax but it has a resale value like a pebble in a pond.  :imaposer:

Saw an ad for a Yamaha TY50 on Gumtree, and it stated "no papers [even more collectable]"

All KTM will collect legend tax being as reliable as they are! Very few will remain!

If 950s are selling for 40-50k now, how much of that is legend tax? Seems to me that without the legend tax they're not worth anything at all.

damn, lots of people now just begging to be banned from the forum! Next someone will claim you can ride sand with something bigger than a 500 and it will be the end of Wilddogs forever!
