I have a 2002 non ABS with 9800 miles, new tires, ECM, backrest, CB, luggage rack and spoiler. Any one have a guess as to the difference to trade for a like 2004 with same equip.? Book shows wholesale to be approx $8860. Just curious if anyone has traded up 2 years and approx difference.

Rabbit,

I think that I would try to sell private first. Ebay second and then if nothing, do the trade.

There has been a lot of rumor about waiting for the 05 version. I have only heard rumors.

Good Luck in anything that you do.

I do remember that a local dealer here (Max Pitts) at Peru IN had an 02 the first of Dec. It had a CB, some extra chrome. and some of the warranty still on it. I think it had around 30.000 miles on it. They were asking 12,999 and it was gone in less than two days. They sell alot of 1800,s new and used. I don't know what they actually got for it or if it was sold straight out or a trade.

OK Bulldog, you have my attention. What rumors about the 05's have you heard? Since the Black Cherry has come out I've been thinking that '05 might be the time for an upgrade. Piper

Piper,
Word is they are going to do a drastic redesign of the cooling system, which will involve as a minimum a redesign of the fairing.

Not a lot of info other than that... at least not that I have heard

OK guys...here's the scoop
2800 cc injected engine, afterburners, pilot, sorry....driver ejection seat, built in coffee pot and microwave. These will all be standard features. Options will be plentiful and all accessories will have to be purchased from Honda.
Well, there it is!!!!

Piper,

It is all rumor, and definitely not from any qualified source. I think it might even be coming from Bookies.

Rumor is that they will drastically make the necessary changes that it takes to clean up all the recurring problems that our bikes have had up to this date.

As a whole, Honda's reputation has not been blemished all that bad. But on the Touring bike side, Honda has a great public relations problem to deal with. Best way to do that is build a better bike, with less frequency of recurring problems.

Makes sense to me.
