    Would that be like getting offered £6000 part ex for a 2011 r1200gsa with 11,000 miles and fsh (against a £16,000 2014 model) - a 33 month ols bike that cost £13,000
    I did say some dough
    Dealer has to make a living
    That is shocking though hope you told him to swivel

    Out of order that Neil............ Keep their price, Aye for the Dealers. I know they need to make a living but that is truly out of order. For the loyalty of staying with the brand you would think they would be more flexible. If they try that crap with me then I will be out (dragons den)

    It did take the shine off looking at the new gsa, to be honest I will not be part exchanging the bike , I know the dealers have to make a profit BUT the fact that they want to make near as dammit £4000 off a part ex as well as whatever profit they would make on the new bike has made me think very carefully about changing the bike.
    The new GSA would have to be the most awesome bike ever to make that kind of kick in the b**ls acceptable , if I was tempted my bike will be sold privately.

    I don't reckon the finance companies like to bet with losing money, so this seems to replace guesswork:

    Roughly half the OTR price after 3 years / 15 000 miles

    And after five years and 50,000 miles ?? What difference then?

    I was disappointed with my trade in on the F650GS, I think much of this holding value is a myth. I was told when buying my Mitsubishi car that it wouldn't hold it's value, well I paid £3k less for it than similar diesels from the big makes and it is certainly not worth £3k less than a similar age car from one of those big makes now....


    As for the new V-strom it has stolen my heart, my F650GS twin which was the best bike I had owned is about 60% the bike that the v-strom is, and the 3k I have saved over a bigger GS well I can't see me losing out anymore than I would have done with the BMW.

    Spoke to two Austrians with the new v strom 1000's up on the Grossglockner a fortnight ago, they were in a group with an 1190 ktm a couple of r1200gs wc's , a multistrada sport and a versys 1000.
    Both loved their bikes and they weren't struggling to stay with the so called faster bikes or the bm's, must say the red one looked really nice

    Bought one !

    Love it too, P/ex'd my R1150rt. Got fed up spending hours in the garage fixing things.
    Have to say the Strom is good, all day comfortable stock seat, really flickable and planted in the bends too.

    Even better now; http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Suzuki-DL1...item339d853ceb £7670 + £108 OTR charges. With 2yrs Suzuki warrantee. OK its imported, but are`nt they all? A lot cheaper than the Tracer Im going to look at. Descisions, descisions. Well saying that, my last VStrom never broke down and went like a stabbed rat. Will have to check this one out carefully before making a descision.
    Whoooosh!!!!!! `What was that?` That was your life passing by. `Can I have another go as I havent done anything yet?`........ Sorry, only one go for everyone.

    Really like the look of these and you do seem to be getting a good package for your money....pretty much for the price BM would offer 'to change' from a 2011 GSA to a new one. Tempted to keep the GSA and get one of these. Feel a test ride coming up!

    There's a few on there for £7495 otr and the 650 for £5495 , now thats cheap motoring�� !
    They even have this years 650 with the spoked tubeless wheels for £5895. I'm guessing a cash over for any of them may get a couple of hundred more.
    Bargain motoring and a very good reliable bike.

    Well, I have had a couple- took the 650 strom to Timbuktu and back- 13,000 miles in 25 days. 7 bikes departed, 3 returned- 2 x 650 stroms and a 1000 strom. Left behind, in the sand, were 2xgsa's, 1 x ktm 950, 1 x 100pd. Now have the strom 1000- 0% finance 2 years, 3000 miles last 2 weeks to sth Spain, 68mpg, 270 miles per tank, never missed a beat, just like the 650. No worries on leaving outside when away, as half the value that my gsa was. Spent to gsa change on a Hayabusa...works for me. Recommend+++++ go to York Suzuki- superb. Alistair.
