What it's "worth" and what you can expect to get for it in today's economy are 2 different worlds. But here's my 2 cents.

--all those mods you listed don't mean squat in regards to the price
--23K miles isn't a lot, but it will seem that way to many perspective buyers
--the bike is 6 years old

So, while you might be able to hold out for more, I'd say you can expect offers from $2500-$3500 (with $3500 being a realistic max you might get).

The economy still sucks, and sportbikes just aren't in too many people's budgets.

I'd say 6k as is. Not sure how many are for sale in your area though. List it at 6700 or something

Are you high?



I'm with L8 Braker... In street trim with a clean title you might get closer to the mid-4K range, but as a track bike you'll be lucky to break 3k.

There would be hot chicks in this signature if the site would let me.

If you were to give me that much for my tracked out R6 (with comparable mods) I'd be on my way to your place to deliver it right this second.

does it really matter too much to people. "been on the track"

whats the difference between that and riding agressively on the street or in the canyons?

as long as the bike is properly maitananced, whats the big deal.

People that don't know any better assume that being on the track means that it's been flogged to fck and thrown down two dozen times. Honestly though, if you try and tell me you're as hard on your bike on the street as you are on the track, you're not just lying to me; you're lying to yourself.

I'm just saying that sportbikes are made to ride on the track and as long as they are maintained what difference would it make.

You and I both know that, but the average D-bag doesn't... And a buyer will use any leverage they can to get a lower price.

Put it back to stock trim, sell all the aftermarkets on ebay or forums. You will get around 4k for the bike, you will probably end up with 5500 after selling off the spares. This time of year your not going to get prime dollar for it. But 3500 is way low of an estimate even this time of year and current economy.

Gotta disagree and here's why:

The big picture is this - Very few banks (if any) are giving personal loans for a used sportbike purchase. So that means whoever buys this bike will have to pay cash. Now, I don't know too many people with 5or 6 thousand dollars cash sitting around that they plan on using to purchase a used sportbike. If they do have that kind of cash just laying around than they're probably a little smarter than the average Joe and wouldn't waste it on such a frivolous purchase.

So that means that the buyers market for this bike (and countless others) is very, very small. And that usually means the seller will get no where near what some Blue Book or NADA says its "worth". The seller can hold onto it forever or take a hit in the pocketbook and get rid of some old baggage. Simple as that.

Gotta disagree and here's why. I buy and sell bikes all the time, its what I do for extra cash. Maybe in your neck of the words there's no one with enough cash to purchase a bike, but here in arkansas I know what I could get out of the bike, and I know what the aftermarket parts are worth. 4k is a reasonable amount to pay for a k6 in stock trim, with a few aftermarket touches that wouldn't be worth removing(upgraded brake lines and filter) all the other stuff goes on ebay or forums


Scorpion slipon 250
power commander 200
Vortex rearsets 200
Vortex levers 100
hotbodies race glass 400 (lowside)
Extra fairing stay 75 each
Ect ect ect.

5500 after its made stock and aftermarkets are sold out is my estimate still.

Well, there's 2 different opinions. Anyone else? I might have to move this to general to get more responses.

Maybe DSMGix will post his gain or loss if he chooses to sell?
