SFS sale prices

Hello all. I have a 2010 SFS, with lots of mods. Bike has 42,000km (26k miles) on it and has been well maintained. It's the best bike I've ever owned. For three years I have been trying to sell it for US$6k and I received only one bid for US$4k (I just couldn't do it - I'd rather track the bike). I know the mileage is an issue but only $6k!? I've seen 696 Monsters sell for more. Comments?

You underestimate how important mileage is on motorcycles. But on Ducatis it's x2. Sure on this forum you'll get a bunch of people saying the bike is worth it if it's been taken care of. But to the general public, a high mileage Ducati is trouble. A low mileage 696 on the other hand, simple bike, nothing to break, and it's going to go a nice long time without issue. $6K for that.

Part of selling is picking the right starting price. Start too high and all that's left is dinks to throw lowballs. Or you could do what I do when I sell a bike: price it below market value, sell in one day and not waste any of your valuable time. The person who manages to put cash in my hand first gets it. Anyone who asks a question goes to the back of the line.

Sheesh you've been trying to sell it for 3 years? If I haven't sold a bike in a month, I'm cutting the price in half to end my pain.

I don't need the money and the owning this bike is far from being painful - I love to ride it. If I was younger I wouldn't be selling it. I just wanted to point out that the resale market for used, but-well- maintained Ducs is "limited". I suspect that the Aprilia's and MV's are even worse. Ducs are like Ferraris - if you actually ride/drive like the design calls for, the value falls off a cliff. For a Ferrari the first ledge is around 6k miles. C'est la vie, eh?

Indeed Aprilias and MV's are even worse. Even for low miles. They sit there for what the owners think they are worth until they fall off craigslist a month or two later.

This one guy by me has been trying to sell a 675 Brutal for like 4 years. He cuts the price by $500 a year but it's not enough.
