    morning been thinking about selling or trading in my bike for a 2017 sp , I got a p/ex price from a dealer of £6k which I thought was crap with all the extras and 3002 miles on the clock and now would it be worth more selling private ? it has loads of extras , so what do you think ?

    £6k is a kick in the nads agreed. They will want to make at least a grand profit on that when they put it in their showroom. Dealers are very clever. They know you really want the new bike and typically (not always) desperate to get shut of your current one. I can never be arsed selling private, so I have fell foul to this tactic many times.

    Keith, it really is a matter of weighing up the simplicity of a p/ex (and consequent lower price) compared to the 'stress' of dealing with tyre kickers; the possibility of being targeted for theft; and also the trauma of having a deal, only to see it fall through cos the purchaser can't come up with the cash.

    Sometimes we just have to bite the bullet to get what we want. You could, though, try another dealer. Competition brings reward!

    If you hold on a bit, why not wait out for a year old 'used' SP bike from a dealer - this will be thousands less than brand new after the initial hit - so your price to change will be a few grand less than £6k off what is almost a £20k bike

    Not a blade I know but a 2017 ZX10r brand new is £13.5 at J&S Northwich , meaning a very different price to change of £7.5k vs £14k

    Sound advice, Allblade. Keith will also see savings if he's able to do the deal before the summer season and consequent dealer price hike.

    But consider a Kawasaki or other make? I suspect most of us are Honda devotees over a long period of time. For me, I would rather pay over the odds for a Honda than even consider another marque. Before buying my 2011 last week, I knew Yamaha's R1 was highly rated, and falling just behind was Suzuki and Kawasaki. But they didn't get a look in. Maybe so if I was buying solely on price.

    I suspect Keith has been ogling a 2017 SP and won't settle for anything less.

    to be honest I spoke to 2 different dealers yesterday , 1 was £19125 , and another dealer offered me 1 for £16850 which I thought was a good price , but I just don't want to give mine away if you know what I mean.

    You won't get a heavily discounted price and a high part exchange price. £6k doesn't sounds too bad for a 4 year old Blade. Put it back to standard and sell the extras separately (Dealers often prefer standard bikes and won't pay a premium for extras).

    As above, why not get one nearly new - e.g. one with less that 600 miles on for £15k https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-2017-CBR1000RR-SP-ABS-Fireblade-ONLY-576-Miles/122765836688

    It is the cost to change that is important. Dealers have to make money - provide warranty, finance, px on a bike they take as px - and they want be wanting to stock up on Blades at this time of year.

    Everytime a substantial upgrade hits the market the value of previous models will always take a hit due to the number that come on to the 2nd hand market due to trade ins. I guess the fact that the new model is already being discounted doesn't help either.

    I just sold my 2015 gsxr 1000 it had £5000 of mods on it sold it for £10000 on paper worth £12500 easy, just didn't have the time to strip it down and rebuild it then spend weeks on Ebay. Problem is I always want to personalise my bikes big mistake in the end. Been offered a good deal on PCP for a SP blade but I dont ride in the winter and not sure deal will still be there in spring,depends how many they have left I suppose.
