I have been watching the second hand market quite a lot in the past few months and just as an example I will use the popular lams 250's; vtr, ninja and cbr. Around maybe September, give or take a few months, the price of a good condition, 2010 (+, -) CBR with ~20,000 km was well into the $5000 range, 4000 if its a desperate sale and really rarely 3000 if its been dropped and thrashed. Now, I can find 2010 models with less then 20,000 km in the $3000 range easily. This is very much the same for the VTR, $5000 was the average a few months ago, now, there are some as low as $2500. (desperate sale). The ninja, I slightly expected to drop because the 2013 model is quite different and my assumption was that more people wanted a new 2013 compared to the amount of people who wanted a new 2012, therefore decreasing the value of pre 2013 slightly. Also, the 300... Just thought I would share what I have noticed. Who has recently (In the past year) bought one of these? What do you think? What are some of your ideas causing the price drop.
