Well got all excited then, even with £1k off I’m struggling to get the bike I Want, but I know after XMas prices will just drop further. The R1200gsTE in red 2016 is what I’m trying to locate for 10k with lauggage. Lucky for me the 1250 is due.

on the other hand it's reassuring to know GS's hold their value better than the competition :) and trust me they won't drop further at our place. We're taking a hit on every one it's just after a successful quarter we have too many px's in and have decided to have a one off sale to clear some stock.

Bear in mind we have to pay £500 for the warranty and recovery. £88 for the RFL, plus the 2 years service costs and the £1000 off. There's no way we have that much in a used bike. It'd be nice to think that previous owners would roll over and let us have px's for nowt but that's not how it works :D

I've had a customer today tell me one of our bikes was the same price as a private sale with exact mileage, but of course the private sale wouldn't have the hpi, services to date, 2 years service, 2 years warranty, 2 years mot etc etc ..... to me it's a no brainer..... but apparently not

So many aspects in play with new/used prices - especially when you throw PCP into the mix (as most, it seems new 'sales' - are)

I think it is a very dificult calculation on each trade-in/PCP trade-on - to ensure that the required profit is returned for a dealer.

See if that works .....

I am sure you are right. I have a couple of clients who work in separate motor franchises , in different departments too, here in the Borders, it is not a pretty picture they paint. The dealers are made to jump through all the hoops and invest in corporate image, given stingy target times on service and warranty repairs. Have to train tecchys up to an ever accelerating tech revolution and then get beaten with shitty corporate and punter sticks when perceptions dictate.
