What's a used Wave worth?

Recommended Posts

I haven't been around here for a while as I had to leave Thailand to help with a family situation back home about 10 months ago. I expected to be back in Thailand by now but my return could be delayed much longer -- even indefinitely. I left a 2012 Honda Wave 110i in storage with a friend about a year ago, and want to sell it, but have no idea of what to ask. Any help would be appreciated. It has about 36000 kms on it. The sprocket and  chain were replaced at 24,000 km and , battery and rear tire were replaced some time after that. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks for the help, folks.  

 

It's not in really nice condition -- usual fading of paint and plastic, but it has been maintained and runs properly. I'll probably ask somewhere between 12 and 14 then. 

 

I guess it's off to the classified section.  

 

I'd prefer to be there riding it, but it's just not in the stars for a while.

Unless you are in Thailand, selling the Wave ain't really doable.

Why is that? I have the registration with me and was going to sign it then courier it over to the person who is storing the bike for me. Am I missing something?

unless you need the money or the space used for storage i would hang onto it, is the bike green book in your name.

The person who is storing it is imposing a deadline that I won't likely be able to meet.  Yes, it's in my name.

I guess no one on this forum wants to buy it so best get it advertised properly.....nice try anyway mate.

 

Put it on at 14k and you will sell it, though TIT means it may take a while....

 

....or come and get it and ride it home..

AllanB,

 

I certainly wouldn't have complained if a sale had occurred via this post, but my true intention really was to get a feel for its value. Thanks for your suggestion of 14K. I'd agree that it's realistic.  

 

I lived in Thailand many years and the possibility of returning before too long is quite possible, so finding a convenient way to keep it ready there is the most appealing option. It was also mentioned in a post that selling it without a current Thailand address may cause a snag, which would make sense, so I'll have to give it more thought. 

 

I got some good info from my post, so thanks to all.

Well, Certificate of Residency and a couple other papers; power- of- attorney, one other.

You screwed bro.

I was only kidding...but here is another idea.

 

14k is not a lot of money/risk and these bikes do keep going, so if you have a friend who could make use of it, lend it to him/her and let them get some use out of it. Keeping it running and keeping it taxed is no bad thing and then if you come back you have some working wheels.

 

That is what I would do, in fact we are away for many months at a time and I get my stepson to use the truck and bikes while we are away.
