    I would bet you could not get more than 14,500 to 15,000 for it outright in private sale if you were lucky. It is a buyers market right now.

    If you wanted the best out of it I would think a trade in would be your best bet. You would receive the sales tax benefit as mentioned above.

    I feel your pain as I let a 15 RT go to get into my 17.5 GS and I took a financial bath.

    I did it to get a GS with less weight then my RT and to get the upgraded transmission.

    I did not want TFT but wanted LED headlight.

    I also got a low which was the biggest reason. Once I sat on a low it was over I knew I had to have a low bike. My inseam and I had been fussing with the LT then the RT for too long.

    Here's a sample of what you'd be competing with. A '18, virtually new, with quite a bit of warranty and well equipped. That bike listed for $23K+ a year ago.

    That is a shame but for sure the reality of the market right now. I know it has forced me to keep my bike for a very long time as I will not take a financial bath again.

    I want a 1250 and someday I may get one but it will not be for long time if ever.

    I think the only way to make money on these bikes is ride them until they wear out.

    Yes that 18 example is a sobering reminder of a new model release, and glut in the used market because of the new model.

    I am not sure a 1200 will ever be worth what it was 6 month ago?

    This means it has Headlight Pro, ShiftPro, Radio, Keyless, Radio, Ride Modes, Chrome Exhaust, Hill Start, GPS Prep, Dynamic ESA, Heated Seats & Bars, TPM, Central locking .... did I forget anything?

    We won't talk about how I have modded it since (Ilyium, Clearwater)

    Did it have the BMW auxillary lights? Even though you mentioned Clearwater, I thought i would check anyway. The 2019 model came with all you listed plus the LED auxillary (fog) lights, as the Select Package.

    Thanks,

    Once you start reading stuff like this, I wonder who's the intended buyer:

    (A ventilation duct makes the head of the machine appear to float above the side trim panel to a certain extent. This combination of vehicle head and side trip panel highlights the light agility of the machine. The formally integrated front fender rounds off the dynamic vehicle concept in the front section. Integrated into the stretched Flyline are a comfort seat with low seat height and an ergonomically designed touring tank with distinctive knee grip area – for even more comfort.

    The flowing interplay of the aerodynamically designed surfaces are reflected in the dynamism of the machine. Even the elegantly designed cases are a harmonious accompaniment to the consistent overall composition made of made up of surface and line styles. Here, it is clear from the first glance that the R 1200 RT promises relaxed long-distance suitability as well as dynamism. And it keeps this promise as well.)

    No, sir. No BMW aux lights. It had a hybrid set of Denali lights on the engine crash bars. I added a set of Clearwater Ericas, and might remove the Denalis.

    Be safe, Andres
