Why are you giving up on the B and what are you looking for in the GT/GTL?

Loved the B. It was a fun bike and the Remus made a wonderful sound. I had a Corbin saddle with their backrest for the wife, but she found it to hit a little low on her back and didn't give her the feeling of security as either the GTL or the RT did with the top case. The low windscreen on the B also created more wind for her than the GTL or the RT with the standard screen. While I liked the day-cruiser ride of the B (not that you can't tour on it) I find that I'm more of a sport-touring rider and the GT was a better choice for ergos and that type of spirited riding.
If I could have afforded it, I would have kept the B and just added a GT to the stable. Both terrific bikes, but the B was too much of a compromise for those times my wife rode with me. Going with a GA was an option as it provided top case backrest for her, but again my riding style tends to be solo sport touring.

Msrp $25,200
Tax- 6.25% = $1575
Total $26,775 Ballpark
Was fortunate that the dealer was aware seller wanted to sell the bike and got us together. The seller had to pay the dealer a brokerage fee on top of that.

3,000 miles, Remus exhaust, all else stock and perfect condition.
NADA says:
Low Retail: $16,329
High Retail: $21,733

KBB says:
Typical Listing price: $19,445
Trade Value: $15,200

I'm seeing on Searchtempest and CycleTrader what individuals and dealers are asking, but no way of knowing what the selling price has been.
Understand each market is different - I have my own ideas, but what do you think a fair price would be?
Do you want to sell Remus exhaust seperately how much ? please PM me

Thank You

I just purchased an '18 B with 1800 miles. It's loaded with Safety and Premium packages as well as the option 719 forged wheels and a Nav 6. Stock exhaust but about $3,700 in extras (at MSRP) form Wunderlich, Clearwater, Ilium etc.


I paid $15,990 for it. It cost me another $700 to ship it to me, but still well worth it IMO. I was in the market at $18k but stumbled on this one and saved myself some money.
