How much would you have to get for a 2011 RT with 7k on the odo, all maintenance records to date, with all of the BMW options less ASC, TPM and chrome exhaust. Additional equipment would include BMW 49L topbox, engine guards, hwy pegs, barbacks, rear fender adj.extension, saddlebag liners, hitch, headlite protector, passenger peg extensions, and Tour Comfort dual heated seat.
Just asking because someone (a dealer friend) asked me what I'd have to have for it on trade if I was to swap to a different brand (I'm not but it got me wondering).
So what would be fair $$$$????

I took a ride on a demo GTL and when I got back to the shop they wanted to sell it to me. Offered $14K for my 2011 RT w radio, ESA, etc with 6000 miles. I told him I needed $16k. No deal made that day.

I would figure 14 is about right on trade in.. Maybe less. 16 is probably retail... Dealer is not going to go for it if he can't make a profit...

Paid about 24k for an 2011 R1200RT, got about 6K miles on it and it's surprising to hear it's dropped 8K in value over 365 days....or about $21.00 per day. So much for the dealer telling me how well these bikes hold their value....silly me. :)

Whatever it's worth retail/fair market value (as if you were going to sell it on your own) the dealer will at best give you no more than 60%. As far as options you can pretty much expect to take a 50- 80% loss on what you paid for them, they're never something that holds value.

Similar setup here. 2011 RT, all options except Sirius Sargent seat, Cee Bailey's windshield, highway pegs, cylinder head & bag protectors, 49 liter top case, aux brake light, and peg lowering kit.

$16,000 in trade and I'd be on a GS/A in a heartbeat.

^^^ Interesting post. Not meaning to hijack thread, but care to elaborate? Has your riding style changed? Is it the ergos? Curious...

Cheers,

The GSA has a more upright riding position as well as wider bars and much more suspension travel. It is an absolute hoot to hustle through old mountain roads. You give up a little bit of wind protection and a few creature comforts, but to me it's a much more entertaining bike to ride.

^^^lol, I looked at em before I ordered my RT, and I have to agree with you. I'm considering trading my H-D SG for a GSA...

By the way, I'm not knocking the RT one bit. It's a really good bike, and I enjoy riding it. I'm looking forward to taking it to Colorado next month. But for my typical local riding, I think a GSA would be the ticket.

Truthfully, I think I need a Road King, a DRZ, and a GSA to compliment the Night Train and the RT. The wife doesn't quite see it that way.
