    2007 r1200s

    Iím curious about the value of a R1200S. Itís yellow, custom seat, ABS, wide rear tire, Ohlins, Full SS exhaust system. 42,000 miles, good mechanical condition, fair cosmetic. I have the stock exhaust system for it. May sell or trade it in for a late model R1200/1250RT.

    Most 13 year old bikes are worth about half what their current owner thinks they are worth.

    Thanks for the reply. But not very helpful since I didnít state a value. It is a fairly rare model. Only 650 imported to North America.

    OK. NADA says that counting a premium exhaust and suspension Average Retail is $5,208 and Low Retail is $3,930. Those are the only two values they provide. Since NADA is most often used for trade-ins and insurance low-balls take this with a slight but not huge grain of salt.

    I got on Kelley Blue Book and they say in "good condition" the value would be $4,735.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks Paul. Thatís about where I thought it would be. Might keep it a while if thatís all I could get. Fun bike to ride, for about 300 miles. Also have a 1996 RT for long trip but it has over 100,000 miles so maybe Iíll sell that and get another RT. A water cooled one would be nice.

    We have a more rare black 07 with factory option Ohlins and Akropovic exhaust...prob never sell it as it's worth more to me than anyone would offer...but we rarely sell anyways It does start a lot of conversations.

    If I were twenty years younger, I would travel more on it.It just isn't set up for touring, especially after putting carbon pillion cover on it, though I did a four western state run on it once...and that was plenty

    There is a couple of shots from the official US release California presser with a lot of yellow S's for the test rides which happened at the Playboy Mansion in Aug 06. You'll have to Google BMW R1200S Playboy Mansion or Topspeed.com August 2006 who wrote the article...some wouldn't like the employees near the bikes...nuff said
    You may have one of those California models...the bike of course

    They tend to sell in the $6-7k range from the ones Iíve seen. I sold mine for $8k about 5 years ago (and still miss it). Itís a rare bike and if you list it you may find someone willing to pay more for it.

    I agree if someone really wants that model. Two HP2 models especially have listed close to original price.
