Yamaha XT660Z (2009)

Hi all.
Just putting some feelers out. I am thinking of selling my 2009 Yamaha XT660Z with a a bit under 50,000 miles on the clock. Many mods (aftermarket exhaust, seat, luggage racks, Adventure Spec bash plate/engine bars, barkbusters, battery warning light, headlight protector etc.) Located in London, UK. Not ridden as much as it deserves in recent years as I have 2 other bikes in the stable. Wondering what sort of price would be reasonable. It has completed a London to Kuala Lumpur trip and a jaunt around South America (as well as several European rides). By no means in pristine condition as has had a lot of hard miles; but runs well.
Cheers.

Somewhere between £2-3,000. If you search the model on eBay you'll get a pretty good idea what people are asking. We're coming into spring so hopefully demand will be reasonably strong.

eBay currently has two 2009 bikes for sale; both for considerably more than I paid for mine second hand about 13 years ago. Is it becoming a highly sought after cult classic??

It's certainly gained something of a cult following and owners seem very loyal to them. That doesn't mean they have reached the heady status of "collectable" though The dealer bikes will be £500-1,000 more than comparable private sales and don't forget asking prices and selling prices aren't necessarily the same thing

I bought mine (2012) late last year for £5,000 but that was very low mileage (6,000) in very tidy condition with luggage and quite a few useful farkles.

OK. If anyone on here is interested; I am putting a price of £2,500 on the bike. I think this is a fair reflection of the condition/mileage. Located in North London, UK. Please PM for more details of mods, pictures etc.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
