Value of a 800 on a trade
I not sure if this is the right place to ask this but i'm looking at trading my 800 to a guy with a ktm 690 for track purposes and Im having a hard time figuring out the value of both so i though I would ask you all. As i'm sure you're all aware the value of the bikes changes by region but i though the differential would be the same. So here we go.
My GS good overall condition, not rebuild, clean accident history other than off road tip overs.
2010 Magma Red 800gs
All BWM add ons other than the security package
Brittania Composites adjustable fairing
SW motech crash bars
MOD rear rack
Touratech Zega pannier racks
BMW enduro skid plate
Highway dirt bikes guards and mirrors
Cheap CNC adjustable levers
Rick Mayer saddle
Fender extended up front
Maintenance up to date
Chain later in life, wheels paint has scratches from off road, batter need to be replaced
2012 KTM 690 R
Plain as they come
Seems like its in good shape
Engine was grenaded and is being rebuild by a ktm shop with a new crank, top end and full exhaust.
Which bike do you all figure is worth more and by how much?
I seriously love my bike but i need a dedicated track bike and the 690 makes more sense at this moment and don't have money or time for 2 bikes. Already have 4 to maintain in the family.
Any help would be appreciated.

From my Ontario perspective, you'd be lucky with $7000 for yours. I was happy to get $8G for my 2012 with 13k kms. We all know here your mileage is nothing but the typical buyer shies away from it, preferring a low mile centrepiece.
I have no idea on the KTM.
Funny tho, a BMW with a rebuilt engine is worth less. A KTM with a rebuilt engine seems to be worth more?

I don't know I would buy a bike that had been mistreated enough to "grenade" an engine.
Who knows what else he did?
Dynabeads?! (I jest!)
Bikes are like rocket science... except we try to avoid the coming back down part.
