Back in the UK now (been working abroad) so need to get this moved on.

Open to sensible offers before Autotrader..........

Your audience is somewhat limited on this forum, .... have you advertised the bike elsewhere  :question:    if not maybe you could consider doing so    :169:

As I suggested before, try the Superbike Factory!

I tried them when selling my 2016 bike recently and they gave me a very low price based on the base model, and were not interested that it was a full GT with all the kit. Because the GT is effectively a dealer fit kit they don't recognise it in the valuation.

There are a number of similar bikes on autotrader with 5Kish miles on the clock from dealers, similar price. I guess they will offer trade ins, finance, some warranty and discounts for cash.

It is a lot of money for many to stump up on private sale.

Is your bike priced right?

GBP7850 is a very reasonable price in the US market, when converted to USD. I don't know what other market factors may apply in the US vs UK, nor did I realize how deflated the pound is against the dollar, presumably thanks to Brexit chaos.

There are, however, a lot of used and leftover Mk2 V1000s on Cycletrader, albeit at higher prices.

... and, still a lot of 2019 Flying Nun SE+'s available at list price.

Overall US motorcycle sales are off nearly three percentage points from last year. We're in a slump. Good for buyers, bad for the industry and private sellers.

I guess another price drop could help avoiding the waste.
I traded my '15 GT, 45000 kms on the clock, for EUR 7200 to the dealer.

I see your bike is advertised on Autotrader, and by comparison to others it doesn't really seem to be too expensive, however some of the other similar bikes are offered with a secondary warranty and that can help, also as they are offered by dealers there will be a p/x consideration whereas yours is an outright purchase, these are seemingly small factors which can affect your sale.

If I'm being honest I would re-word your description leaving out the reason for sale (cramps) and also reduce the price to a 'one off' offer   :169:   

Good luck I hope you manage to sell your bike soon
