I sell a lot of equipment and cars, etc for my job and I always try and be the cheapest price of whatever I'm selling to be rid of it and move on (and still make some money). There are probably none of these for sale to do a check against so you are the test group.

The Oahu market is small and I imagine Maui even less so. If the thing is super clean and you are trying to sell locally, I might try and fetch 60-75% of what it cost new, also weighing what a new equivalent is going for. Someone may need that for primary transportation or maybe it's nice enough for a part time resident to stash in their scabbed on AirBnB unit?

If it's rough but still useable I always feel like I did good when I get 50% of what something cost new. .02

I'm just spitballin tho...good luck.

I had a 2008 BV 500, that I sold in 2014 for $3200.
7 years later, in similar condition (very good mechanically, "good" cosmetically), maybe $2000 in my market.

In Maui, I have no idea. Is it rare and desirable? Are scooters in general rare and desirable? Cost of living is likely higher. Dealership, or lack thereof, may be an issue. Spitballing I'd aim for $1500-2000. Depends on lots of things....

Sorry I didn't put in more info, I am in Vacaville California for 3-4 months to film and working on my VW bus restoration, thinking about getting a scooter to get around, once project is done, I sell it to get money back... I have 18 scooters, some in Maui, some in WA, some in Texas, none in California 😆😂😂

You're a VERY special situation, Mitch!

Is another scooter really the answer for you? Maybe it would be better to ship one of your WA or TX scooters to CA, and then sell it.
