Decent price for a used 2017

Hello Everyone,
I'm strongly considering the purchase of a used 2017 Blue/Black Gold Wing. It has 5250 miles on it. It has the nav system and all the other goodies except the airbag and ABS. I'm in the Phoenix area.

Any idea what a fair price from a dealer would be?

Out the door they're looking for $23,200. That's about in the range that NADA says but it seemed a bit high to me considering it does not have ABS.

Anyone else have an opinion.

For the last 9 years I've been riding a 2009 Buell Ulysses XB12XT. I love the thing but my riding style has changed. I don't lean over as aggressively as I used to and find I'm ready for some creature comforts. I considered some of the big HD products but they're overpriced and not as reliable as I need. When I buy a
Gold Wing, it will be my daily rider like my Buell is now.

I commute 45 miles round trip. It's about evenly split between at speed interstate, stop and crawl interstate with about 3 or 4 miles of 45mph surface streets. I think a GW will be perfect for my needs.

Oh by the way, I'm Scooter Trash.

First of all, welcome to the forum.

That seems too high. I know it's not the same area, but a dealer here has a New 2016 level 3 for $19,999.

2004 GL1800 Bloodstone Red Metallic
1988 GL1500/6 Martini Beige Metallic (Sold)
1984 GL1200 Pearl Saturn Red/Century Brown Metallic (Sold)
1981 Honda CM400T Candy Sword Blue with Metallic Light Blue (Cubed and Recycled)

KBB says $22,835. Price may be a little high but dealers tend to want that for the tricolor bikes. There is a red, black gold one around me and its about the same. They asking $500 over KBB. Really love that blue color btw.

So my son and I went to see it this afternoon. It looks like it had a minor garage tip over. Just a couple of very minor scratches. Have to look hard to find them. Front tire shows the mileage but the back has a lot of life in it still. Gotta tell you, it was tough to not give in to emotion and just take it. Gonna wait a day or two and see if they'll drop the price at all. Actually I don't expect them to. Its so clean they won't have any trouble selling it. Trying to find a late model, low mileage GoldWing is like hunting for a unicorn.

Welcome to the forum, Scooter T. You might have more choices if you relax about the mileage. These bikes tend to go the distance and then some. With stop and crawl traffic part of your daily commute (I used to have the same before I retired) you might want to consider the 2018 models with the walk mode for the transmission.

That seems very high too me. There are some awesome deals I have seen on another forum with very low miles, tons of extras and color matched trailers many sub 30k mile bikes in the 13k and under range.

The market on older than 2018 Wings has softened due to the new generation 2018. Not all sellers have figured it out but many have.

There is a ton of new and used pre 2018 inventory for sale. Supply and demand works well.Some great deals to be had.

I don't think KBB or NADA numbers reflect the full extent of the market softening.

I would not rule out a fly and ride.

That is my .02 - YMMV.

2017 Goldwing without ABS ???
It's interesting for me because all the Goldwings imported to my country (Turkey) has ABS.
In fact I can't think about riding such a big bike without ABS.
I wonder why Honda offered ABS as an option in USA market.

This may give you some info. I bought my 2015 in feb, 2017 with 4000 miles for $20k. Like what you have but black. It had a lot of accessories installed including a $1000 mustang seat. I bought it in Alabama and it had been on cycle trader for several months. You should do better than the numbers stated but 2017 is the last year of the old standby. Might make it mor valuable.
