Selling Honda XRE300 in Chile May/June 2024

Hi, I'm planning to buy a 2016 Honda XRE300 in Colombia and ride it down to Chile, most likely finishing in May or June of this year. The bike is registered in Colombia, so it could be sold with a poder (power of attorney) and if you're heading north, you could register it in your name when you reach Colombia. If anyone is looking to make a trip like that and is interested in a bike let me know. Thanks!

Hey Bimrben, I wanted to tell you that I think that that is a good plan. The XRE300 sounds like a good bike choice.

You might have to take a bit of a hit when you go to sell it in Argentina, but in my opinion you are only going to lose 1-2k USD on it when it you go to sell it.

The XRE300 is a popular bike across South America. They sell it in Brazil and Chile too.

A couple of other potential options to consider are the AKT 200 TT and the Hero 200 Xpulse.

The advantage to these 200 cc bikes is you can buy them new for 10 million in Colombia.

Buying a used XRE300 for 15 million is probably worth the added money for that extra 100 cc's

Biggest piece of advice I can give you is to fire sale the bike at the end of your trip. You will rack up expenses if you have to wait a couple extra weeks to sell it.

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.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
