What is it worth?
« on: June 11, 2020, 03:22:10 pm »
Okay, so I am currently in two minds whether or not I should buy a motorcycle, and if it's a good buy.

The motorcycle in question is a immaculate 2012 BMW R1200GS DOHC Triple Black, with 4 000 kilometres on the clock.

What do you think a bike like that is worth?

Whay out my price range, but that triple black is very moreish.

Just search gumtree etc and specify year model to restrict the search (maybe through km as an alternative) and you'll get a good idea

kicker is the mileage really ...i have 2012 gs adv ..vaguely abused and i think dealers would give 85 aprox on trade in .so sell for 100 or 110 i guess ,...but 4k on clock pushes to maybe 130 ????

Thanks for the advice Roxtar!
As for your comment on whether or not it should be a BMW ... Like you said, that's a whole other matter ;D

The only doubt I have is that I'll have to pay in around twenty thousand rand on the bike.
I'm just not sure if now is the right time to get yourself into unnecessary debt.

Now buying it on debt is a whole other matter again....I always buy my toys cash, don't like spending future earnings on something not absolutely necessary, especially not in these uncertain times.

For me R100000 would be ballpark. Good value
Surely if I was obsessed with motorcycles I’d have more than one; no two; no three; no no, four… ah, never mind…
