The trade-in value of Harley Davidson motorcycles depends on factors such as model, year, condition and trade-in location. As of 2015, a 2015 FLD Switchback in good condition has a trade-in value of $12,600 in the Washington, DC, area, while a 1972 Harley FX has a trade-in value of $3,815.
Condition factors that dictate the trade-in value of Harley Davidson motorcycles include mileage, original standard equipment and additional equipment. Equipment that adds value to trade-ins includes alarm systems and custom seats, while Harley Davidsons lacking standard saddlebags have lower trade-in values. Lower mileage generally leads to higher trade-in values, though overall condition has a bigger impact on trade-in prices for Harley Davidsons.
