  • Been noticing a price drop trend (not just time of year)

    I watch the market carefully on Vmax, Royal Star, Road Star, Liner etc....

    Last 3 years prices have been high and stable. This year was great (sold 3 bikes bought 2 so far)...always some good deals if you search but prices have been strong on resale for these bikes.

    Got a potential deal 2010 Midnight Stratoliner loaded, deluxe, factory fairing and hard bags and every accessory available and 13k miles for hopefully $4k (seller thinking it over this will be a $8k bike in spring).

    1998 Vmax original owner 18k miles $2200 he has had 2nd thoughts and will get back to me
    Just found this 05 Road Star asking $2400 but will shoot him lower..

    I think prices have peaked for the most part and will be dropping shortly after spring once the impulsive buyers grab up shiny bikes in March and April.

    I think it might be worth waiting/looking now for killer deals on used Yamahas (and I assume all metric bikes). As always the HD market sets the tone for metric prices and the more financing on new and used HD bikes that are offered will mean more metric bikes being sold to get a down payment on a HD and somewhat "flood" the market"....and lower metric prices..


    Just food for thought....if you want to snag another Road Star start looking and shoot offers...I've gotten great deals on bikes last couple years....m

    Everything east of the Mississippi is in that $ range..can’t flip ‘em at high retail out here..at 2500 there’s money to be made..hard to do when they’re asking / getting 4000
