Book value is between $2,000 & $4,000, with excellent showroom condition at $6,000.

Depending on where you live and if you don't need a car for kids the value is about the same.
Here in Pensacola I can ride 12 months out of the year, I have no kids at home , so don't need a car .

The value of a 27 year old bike is going to be all over the map IMHO. If someone wants "that bike" in it's OEM state it might be worth a lot. There are also things that may need replaced/refreshed that are difficult to come by which could be problematic and diminish the value to others.

How much are you asking for the monza? Personally I almost always just try to sell my stuff as apposed to trade. I can do a lot more with cash than anything else. Even if you really wanted a bike, wouldn鈥檛 it be nice to shop for a bike you want and even top up the kitty for the right one鈥?

The VMax鈥檚 do have a cult following. A lot of folks love them

I'd take the Max but I very biased when it comes to them. Just make sure it doesnt have the dreaded 2nd gear issue or it could mean a tranny repair. Run it up through 1st to 3rd fairly hard and make sure it doesnt pop out of 2nd. It was more common in the early models before they upgraded the shift segments. Other than that they are solid runners with a decent supply parts available new and used, oem and aftermarket. And yes there is a following with lots support from owners across the globe. I would "venture" to say your decision will be easy after 1 test ride. Pm sent. Good luck.
