2010 KLR650 For Sale in UK

Hi All,

I'm writing just to ask your advice if I may. I have the above bike which I have owned from new and imported into the UK when I returned from working there. It is in excellent condition, has only covered just over 1000 miles and has a full mot. It has just been serviced and comes with a top box and brand new outdoor cover. I know these bikes are not available in the UK so wanted to ask your advice regarding what it would be worth as I am looking to sell? Grateful for any views. Cheers.

I would not be willing to pay much for a bike I couldn't get parts for easily. Can you sell it in other parts of the EU? Germany, Italy?

Haven't tried as yet. One of the 'we buy any bike' companies has just offered me 2500 so may accept that.

Well, that 2,500 pounds sets your lower limit.
If it helps, I bought a 2011 in 2012 from a dealer. It had 300 miles and was in the US where KLRs and parts are like fleas on a dog. I paid about $4,700 plus taxes and fees for a bike that would have sold new for around $6,300 plus taxes and fees. That is about 75% of new cost.

Yours is four years older than mine was and located where they are not sold/serviced. My really loose guess is that 45 to 50% of its new cost before tax would be the top of the range.

Thanks. I paid GBP4900 in Jan 2011 so the 2500 gets me just over 50% back. I suppose I could hang out for more but would also stand more chance of getting stuck with it. It's a niche market here...

Hi, just saw your post. Yes it is a niche market here, but there are a few strange locals that will be interested. I know that a 2010 sold here for 3,600 a while back and that someone 5 miles from me still trying to sell their 2009 for 2,500

Give me a shout, I personally ride a KLR in the UK

Actually, just remembered that a dealer was selling brand new ones for 3,995 last year - 2 miles on the clock and brand new imports ...
