I was at my dealers last weekend and he still had an 06 that he not been able to sell. Does anyone have an opinion as to how much they feel it's worth today? I have the 900LT and have been toying with the thought of a larger bike and for the right price would not mind a brand new two model year old bike.

Thanks in advance.

its a 2 year old floor model, he's paying inventory taxes and floor space fee's on it..


I believe the 06's were $9499 +/-


you might be lucky to bargin out maybe $8200 plus your bike in trade?

I dunno, i'm not the best negotiator

I agree with Spok that 8200 would be a decent price fo rthat bike but I don't know about dealing the trade either.

When you guys say 8200 do mean out the door with tax and all other charges included? Also will the 1500 give me much more umph than the nine to be happy long term?

i don't think I meant out the door...I was more saying final price plus Tax/TTL/License

i don't know where the 900 runs on top end, my one and only ride on a 900 was at 50 mph for 3 miles or so. I can tell you that on a run to montana in 05, two 800's gave my 1500 fits on top end and could do it all day for better mileage. saying that tho, the 1500 will pull like a mule on low end and have a better torque curve where you might not need to downshift to climb a hill etc and not feel so buzzy on the slab.

I personally like larger displacement bikes, maybe i'm compensating...but for me, there is no replacement for displacement

I'd say offer them 8200 OTD. All they can do is say no.

As for umph...yes, you will notice some. I haven't ridden a 900, but from what I understand, you'll notice a lower RPM when riding at the same speed. this should equate to less vibration.

New 1500's are $6999 here everyday. Do not be misled because it is "new". The second it leaves the showroom floor it is a 2 year-old bike and it will lose 1/2 of its value. It is what it is, a 2 year-old bike, price accordingly. $8200 would be robbery.

Well, I got my 2001 1500 Classic FI brand new in April 2002 as a non-current model for $1,650 under msrp in Santa Cruz, CA.

There's a box stock '06 1500 Classic with 2K miles for $6,999 from a dealer in Tucson, AZ. Let's say $7K slightly used + $10K brand new = $17K divided by 2 for $8,500 as a ballpark price. Depends on whether your dealer is willing to wheel and deal.

However, $6,999 brand new in Mesa, AZ ... fly there and ride back this time of the year? ;)

That's what I'm talking about. You would never find that kind of deal here.

KBB value is about 7300, I'd hit them with that. Regardless of miles or condition, it's a 2 year old bike.

How is 6999 even possible in Mesa?
