What is it worth/value

Hello all...I am thinking about purchasing a 2016 ZX14R...I am thinking about selling my 12 but don't know how much to ask for or expect to get. I'm the original owner(2001) and I've taken the bike to the shop for repairs when something broke(which is not many times). I have all repair receipts and the oil has been changed every 3,000 miles. This bike has been pampered. I'm still on the original clutch. Problem is.. It has 83,000 miles, but feels like it's new. How much should I ask for? You have to zoom in to see scratches.. Sorry. Here's link to pictures..https://drive.google.com/folderview?...XBzR3Vlb2dLR00

Only worth what someone will pay.... seems clean, average mile 12Rs sell for $3500-4000... maybe a tad more depending on how clean, any mods, etc. I'd guess your bike might sell for $2500?

Oh man! I can't see me parting her out. This bike has been so reliable, never leaving me stranded in all of these miles. The starter, stator and a clutch cable are the major things that have been changed. I guess I'll just stick her in the corner of the garage if I get the 14.

I would just hold onto her personally. That's a good looking 12, would look best parked next to your 14

The ultimate financial mistake.

Yeah..I'm pretty attached to it. She has been good to me. I don't see any oil around the forks, but I think I'm going to have the clutch and the fork oil changed this year just because.

I've only had mine for about a year now and actually tried selling her about a month back but pulled the ad after a few hours because of how much i love it. I've only put 3,500 miles on mine, I cant imagine 80,000.

The ultimate financial mistake.

My 2000 has 36,000 miles. Runs great and sits between my 14r and concours. I just bought a set of stacks for it from Vincent. Waited 16 years for them. It's doesn't get ridden much but it isn't going anywhere.
