Best of luck. That's higher than most dealerships were selling old year models brand new.

Tis better to be thought a fool and remain silent, than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

Thank you! Yeah I think the sale price when I bought it was around $3,800 but with fees and taxes I think I paid something near $6000.

In my part of Canada, they're going for $2100-2700 Cdn. That's between ~ $1600 and $2100 USD, but bikes generally cost more up here than in the US.

Hopefully that gives you a ballpark to work with. The resale value of the 250s was driven down when the 300s and R3 came out.

Cheers!

Every bike is a good bike. The question is whether or not it's the best bike for what you want to do.

The Little Sport Tourer That Could - 2011 CBR250R with touring windscreen, Saddlemen seat, tank cover, frame sliders, mirror extenders, taller gearing via sprockets to fix speedo and reduce vibration at highway speed. Written off due to act of moron.

Yikes, that's a whole lot in fees & taxes to go from a sale price of $3800 to almost $6000 OTD!

When I bought my 2012 CBR250R in April of that year, the selling price was $4099, plus $100 doc fee, $40 for title & 1st yr reg. fee, and $123 for motor vehicle excise tax... so total was $4362 OTD. And that was for a current model year bike, not a 2 year old non-current model.

Obviously, sales taxes & title/reg fees can and do vary across different states. Not to mention that some dealers seem to have no problem charging ridiculously high set-up fees, while others are much more reasonable.

As for what these CBR250R's are realistically worth/selling for today as used bikes, from what I've seen I'd say that $2400 to $2600 is a fair average selling price in the U.S. for a stock bike in overall excellent condition. And if a seller wants to get top dollar* for bolt-on mods, those items really need to be removed from the bike and sold separately.


* IMO, that's about 40-50% of what the item sold for originally.

Yeah, I still have the contract somewhere in my files I just have to go and look for it. To be honest I think the dealer kind of ripped me off because they charged me something near a thousand dollars for assembly and shipping and receiving fees. I paid a lil too much for it but I was a lot younger then and didn't know much. In my area my bike 250s go for around 2300-3300 depending on mileage. I’m very negotiable on the price, so I’m just fielding everyone’s offers.

I know man! I wish I sold my CBR and FZ09 both two years but I convinced my self that maybe since I don’t ride them much they’ll keep their value because of the miles. My plan is to sell both soon hopefully and just buy a dedicated track bike!
