Value of 2015 R3

Hey guys I'm looking to buy a 2015 R3 with 4600 miles. Mods include fender eliminator, smoked led taillight, color matched shorty levers, flush mount turn signals, m4 street slayer slip on, and a tinted windscreen. How much would y'all say this bike is worth? Thanks in advance.

I have sold two R3's both 2015's

Blue one with 3k miles for $4000
Black one with 100 miles for $4400

That was in SoCal the softest market. They all come into the Long Beach port so they get more expensive as you spread them out from there for freight.

$3800-$4000 is the most you want to spend on a used one if it has all the records and parts.

Depends on where its located, and if its from a dealer or private party. Need more information. Like some pictures. Has it been down? What kind of maintenance records, receipts etc.

Mods mean nothing on the price, you can ignore them. I would want all the stock parts that have been removed. Going to lose resale value on the next guy that wants the stock parts.

$3500 to $4000 if not dropped. I would want the recalls to have been performed - it demonstrates care of ownership.

The bike is from a private seller. Never been dropped. Location is central Texas. Not sure about the recalls, I will have to look into that.

Agreed, I have stock fender,tail light, turn signals, levers, exhaust (w smog equip fro under gas tank) all in cardboard box for the day I sell (hopefully never).

Also make sure to keep all receipts for service/recall

I got mine new for 5100$$. Mods add little value. I almost got a very nice r3 with a few mods with 532 miles at a dealer for 4500$. It was in brand new condition. I wouldn't pay more then 4 k$ for that one you are looking at. I'm really enjoying mine.

I paid $5k OTD for a brand new 2015 R3 from a dealer in Southern California.
I put $500 worth of mods on it since I have had it. ( Graves slip-on, Yoshimura FE kit, Yamaha OE rear seat cowl )
It has a little over 2,000 miles on it. I saved all my original take-off parts, and I have dealership paperwork for the recall.
If I was going to sell it tomorrow, I would ask $4,000 for it. Price would be firm. I would not take $3,800 for it.
It's never been dropped, no scratches on it.

$3500-$4000, give or take.

There's a couple R3s in the area in that price range so they really can't ask more than that without you just looking elsewhere.

As mentioned, mods mean nothing and it's just something you will have to accept when you sell. Some people will want stock parts, especially when an inspection could fail if stock parts are altered (exhausts come to mind). Me personally, I take off the mods and sell them separate and put back all the old parts. For the bike you mentioned, I would aim for $3500. I paid $4000 for mine with 94 miles on it. The lady realized after 94 miles that riding wasn't for her.

I paid $5500 Cdn dollars all taxes included for my 2015 R3 at the start of this year. That's about $4800 for a brand new bike so anything less than $4000 should be a fair price. Keep in mind that starter bikes have a high demand so the depreciation curve is not that steep.
