    Hate to say it, but that's not a realistic price anymore. This is due to the 1st gen v4 prices being only several hundred dollars to a grand or 2 more. You could get $5,000-5,500 easily though.

    Bought my 2009 last year with 3k miles, great shape, for less than $5,500. I think thats more where the market is at. Even for a factory. I do agree that it doesn't help that people don't have taste, lol.

    I do think and hope that 2nd gen v2 prices will start to climb when people get tired of electronics. When is the question. Could be 5 years, or 10 years from now.

    It's sad when it can't even bring kbb price... It's got a lot of great upgrades too. Oh well. I can save a few more dollars and keep it then add something else maybe.

    I donít know. Iíve had my 07.5 listed for a couple of months at $5500 and have had some interest but only one has bothered to come look at it.

    Spring may also be a better time to sell although now is a great time to buy usually...the normal rules of motorcycle selling don't really seem to apply to these bikes though. Mine being a 2010 with all the goodies and the condition, I cannot imagine selling it less than $5500. Might as well keep it for awhile.

    spring will improve the prices and yes -all of the above comments are true regarding value and competition. They are just so reliable and fun and this very inexpensive to maintain.

    I sold my last gen2 factory last spring and looked hard at a v4t . I have a new bike project now -that arrived after I tried to buy a Gen2T non-factory but the price was too high IMO

    Enjoy your T- when you tire list it here in for sale section and serious buyers will contact you.

    Iíve listed mine everywhere *but* here because thereís a number of people just about giving them away. Iíd never be able to sell it here for remotely close to what I want.

    The Aprilia devaluation is unfortunate, but real.
    I just missed buying a 2007 standard, low mile T with Akrapovic for $3800 ,so yeah, they are practically giving them away.
    I bought my last T on sale at a good price (cheaper than my last new bike, a GSXR750).
    But two years and 20K miles later I was having that itch again for a different bike.
    The dealer who I bought it from and that had done all the servicing offered me $6k on my nicely optioned 2014 (with a extended warrantee no less) towards a new unit.
    I got around the devaluation on my 2014 by trading it in on a 2007 Factory T.
    Neither of us could sell our bikes at a proper value but a trade made sense.
    So, I was able to get a great bike, with less mileage, put a few dollars in my pocket and have a "new to me bike".
    If I had bought a new bike I would of had to pony up an additional $10K for a 2017 which wasn't the direction I wanted to go.
    It's a bummer the resale is so low on a such a great bike.
    Hope you find a way to make the best of it like I did.

    Factory Gen 2 are going for 3.XK on the forum. That is an absurd price! I think I might get a better trade in.

    They are unvervalued. By all means, keep it if you can and just add more bikes to your collection. No matter what is in your collection, a Gen2 Tuono will always have a place. And there will still be days when it's the one you'll want to ride.

    So true. There's always room for a big beastly vtwin sport bike! Keeping mine for a while.
