Fair Price to sell my 2012 Triumph Tiger 800xc

I'm thinking about selling my bike and buying a Honda CB1100.

Two Honda dealers have told me they'd give me $6000-7000 on a trade. Tiger has under 1,000 miles, Centerstand, fog lights, and in perfect condition.

What would be a fair selling price? I live in northern NJ.

Am unable to find the For Sale section of this site. Is there one?

Thanks for the feedback!

It's called Flea Market. And yes, just run an ad, plenty of eager buyers for a virtually new one at a deal. I wouldn't be selling mine at that price. LOL. IMO 20% off the street price of a new one would be a killer steal-deal. Figure street price on a new one is about $12K.

I sold my 800XC with 7,000 miles for $8200. It has a centerstand, adjustable windscreen, and was in showroom condition.
Hope that this is some help to you.

Yeah, the dealers seem to be low-balling you. Of course, they need to make something in the deal, but you can do way better selling it yourself if you don't mind a little work.

Peruse the flea market, see what people are asking, and figure a little off that in bargaining.

6K to 7K is way low, IMHOp.

Hope this helps.

Decided to Keep the TIGER

After a long test ride on the Honda CB1100, and a similar ride on my own bike -- the first ride of the season -- I have decided to keep the Tiger. The CB1100 is a great bike, it has an extremely high nostalgia quotient for me . . . but the Tiger just felt great. Comfortable, powerful, smooth, confidence-inspiring.

Now if I can just enjoy the bike I already own and stay away from those dealers and the temptation of the latest and greatest shiny new machines.

Many thanks to all of you for your comments -- financial and otherwise.

Yeah, a lot to be said for motorcycle monogamy. (Some of the guys on this site are pure adulterers!!)

My mint condition 2012 Tiger XC may be for sale

I'm again considering selling my bike for personal reasons. I enjoy it more than any other bike I have ever owned or test ridden, I just never have time to ride.

It is still in show room condition, has about 700 miles, last month I had a dealer do a complete service (including the brake fluid and coolant).

Is $9,000-10,000 a fair range for a price?

I'm located in northern NJ.

Thanks.

Honestly I don't see you getting close to $10k for it. I'd say you're looking at $8k-$9k. Personally I'd buy one with more farkles albeit more miles for the same money.

Let's say a new one without tax is about $11,500 with a good discount. Figure 10% a year for a couple of years, so yeah, you're in the ballpark. The choice is a guy has to cough up the extra $$ for a new one or get a deal on a very slightly used one. 700 miles is nothing. I would start at $10.5K or best offer.

It's a VERY popular bike with an outstanding reputation.

IMO, It's going to take $8000 - $8500 to get interest and sell it. Sadly, the Tiger 800XC market is very slow...
