BTW- a 2004 Suzuki SV650S was $6299- not $8k. Odds are, it could have been bought for $5800. If it sells, used now, for $4000, that's $1800 for five years use. $30 a month. Be advised there is no current NADA valuation for Hyosungs, which may impact loan valuation and insurance cost. However, if you guys are stoked about a Hyosung, and could care less about resale- then the topic is moot. You'd better love it, because you might own it for some time. Just for fun, call twenty non-Hyosung dealers and tell them you want to trade in a late model Hyosung. Heck, call a new Hyosung dealer and ask the same thing. Ultimately, it matters to no one except the one buying. However, I've been on the receiving end of that phone call asking me what a trade value would be on a Brand X, and sadly, somehow people's fury at buying the wrong thing gets focused on me, right about the same time that their concern for resale suddenly reappears.
