Both resale prices are in the toilet. I'm seeing 1098 tricolor's low s 15K, thats pretty bad for a bike that was damn near 30K out the door 2 years ago. Saw a 1198s for 19K thats almost....I said almost 10K drop in less than a year ? I'm looking at Canadian pricing if your thinking I'm a litttle off on the prices, we don't seem to enjoy the "bulk" pricing you yanks get.......and deserve as your market in California alone out does our total population in Canada.I talked with my budy who owns the Yamaha dealer in town here, he has not sold 1 09 R1 as to date, pretty sad, as it was supposed to be the new king of the track, and I can't say I have even seen one of the new R1's on the road yet in my travels.

I guess all the Ducs lose a lot of their re-sale value quite rapidly and the 1098 makes no difference. Pretty sure the same thing is going to happen to Desmosedici's in few years, whatever the ppl say about it's uniqueness.

Not sure how this is just Ducs. The value of ALL bikes have gone down recently. In fact, the value of almost everything has gone down recently.

You can buy a brand new 08 CBR1000RR for 6800 bucks these days. Haven't you seen the car commercials for 0% on Porsches?

I'm a Honda dealer. Please tell me where the hell I can buy $6800 CBR1000RRs. I'll buy 'em for our inventory. I think you're a little off...
And WTFover- We're down to 3 2009 R1s left, we've sold about 30 so far this year.

Come to FL and take your pick. Thats with the $2500 manufacturer rebate.

I've even seen one large dealer that has friggin 2007 model 1000RR still on their showroom floor. The new R1's have sold really well in my area too.

+1. I know a few people who've bought from them. southernhonda.com. But this is nothing new. I was reffered to them a couple of years ago, and they had super low prices even then.

According to a local forum, Honda dealers in Charlotte and Arkansas have been selling them for even less.

I've owed a 2005 R1 and loved it. A chap up the road owns the 2009 version and it sounds unbelivable. He claims it is a lot nicer to ride than the old one too. Here in SA the price of bikes has gone through the roof. 2007 CBR1000RR was about R110 000.00 (13500 USD). Now they are R144 000.00 That's 19200 USD) and our currency is now stronger against the dollar... Go Figure.. We're gettign ripped big time.

A riding buddy of mine is going to call them today or tomorrow and see about buying one, and I have another friend who is debating on buying one ($6983 on their website). If I had the space and the extra money, I'd pick up two of the left-over 2008 1000RR's. We contacted Southern Honda a year and a half ago on two left-over 2007 CBR1000RRs at $8600, but opted against buying them at that time. I have heard there is a dealer in Virginia who has the left-over '08 CBR1000RR for $6400, but heard they tack on some other charges to put them at the same price Southern Honda wants.

I saw one (09 R1) when he blew passed me on Westside rd, followed very quickly by a very rapid rider on a Mille Factory (your buddy perhaps?). This while I was doing my damnest to stay in touch with another rapid local on a 1098s. A very enternaining morning in mid september in your hood!:D

1098 depreciation

Bikes, like cars, are for consumption, not investment. Ride it like crazy until there is nothing left and don't worry about the money - it has just been converted to pleasure....

Well stated! Couldn't agree with you more. :D
My '09 Bayliss LE hit 4200 miles this weekend.
Hey, I was in Calgary all last week and headed back up there again next Sunday AM.
Do the Duc guys hang out anywhere? I'm staying right at McKnight Blvd. & Barlow Trl. just south of the airport.

A friend of mine just bought a NEW 2009 CBR1000RR for $8450 out the door, after tax, license and shit. I mean thats just down-right ridiculous! How much will it be worth a year later with 4000 miles? $5k?

If you buy new, you're gonna get raped. I bought an 848 for a smokin' deal ($14k OTD) one month after they came out, my bike is from the first batch! Its worth what, $8k? two years later. What is it going to be worth a year from now? $6k? So after 3 years of running, its worth 1/2 of original price? WOW! :eek:

Holy sheet...nice link to killer prices. Wow! :eek: That is EXTREMELY tempting to buy and hold for a future track bike.

This applies to most cars and bikes. There are exceptions however.

D.

Exactly. Cars and bikes are not investments. Anyone buying a car or a bike thinking that they are going to get anywhere near their purchase price back is dreaming.

All bikes values are in the toilet now, but it does seem that Ducs have been hit harder, maybe just because they were more expensive to begin with. I am buying a 2007 1098s that has at least 10K worth of extras including BST carbon fiber wheels, titanium full system exhaust, 30mm offset triples, Ohlins FGRT 803 forks, PCIII with custom map, Sato rearsets and other goodies, all installed and setup by Dan Kyle, for $16,600. The bike has under 700 miles on it. I considered a new 1198s, but that would be around 24K OTD, and there would still be many mods I would want to do anyway. I think Ducati released the 1198 too soon, it really pushed 1098 values lower. Even the Japanese 600's and 1000's are getting off the "new model every two years" cycle as a response to the slowing global economy.

Well we all know Honda has been in some trouble lately and it's no surprise they are letting bikes go out the door at some verry reasonable prices......but it's still a honda. Ducati's are supposed to hold their own in prices.....kind like Harleys do....or did ?

And for R1's I have yet to see one on the road this year except for my buddy that owns Yamaha up here in Kelowna. And west side rd....yup that was us......sorry ,hope we didn't scare ya , was probably in a hurry to get coffee at the other end of the lake.

It's all about what you can buy a new one for. I think a lot of people who buy Ducatis have disposable income to pay a few grand more and get a brand new bike. If a used bike is not cheap enough to be a GREAT deal compared to a new one, it won't sell very fast. People don't realize that new cars (and probably bikes) depreciate about 30% as soon as they're pulled off the lot. The only time this doesn't apply is when the new ones aren't readily available. Like when you used to have to wait forever to get a new Harley. If you can't go out and pick one up today, suddenly a used bike is worth more because there is a benefit to buy it compared to a new one.
