Which dealer offered you £2500? Just out of interest because I was considering trading in my 625 SMC and heard drysdales gave someone quite a good price for a 640 LC4.

First thought was ......... £2500 ........ someone is having a laugh ..... but then again, was this the model that KTM were discounting new down to £4900 or thereabouts? In which case the sum you have been offered ain't that bad for a three year old bike?

It's also worth thinking about the price of the new bike - especially if that is already heavily discounted. At the end of the day it usually comes down to the 'cost to change' - not some fairly arbitary trade in value.

Go on ...... tell us what you were negotiating against ...... coz I reckon your bike is worth even more against an RC9!

I was just wondering if you were buying one of whatever new bikes KTM are releasing for the 2011 model year - must be about the time that we discover the 2010 models are all totally obsolete and faster, glossier bikes are heading for the showrooms.

try your luck in the for sale section on here, you never know your luck in a raffle and might just find the right buyer?

At the moment i think it will be either a 990smt or the 990adv..but wont be till march next year so got plenty time to flog the 690sm and it most certainly wont be a new 2011 plate...not unless the going rate for bike insructing suddenly doubles...or they start giving them as a straight swap for a w plate yaris!! Just got bike back from getting serviced so will get it cleaned ( mans job ) and get some decent photos see how it goes from there. Thanks for input guys much appreciated
