My 2013 XC has 72,000 miles from me getting it new (next to nothing last year year obvs) I'm going to be selling it in June when all restrictions are lifted not expecting much for it, so we'll see if there's an appetite for high milers!

My 2011 reg 800 owned since 2011,only has 38,000 miles on the clock but then I have clocked up 16,000 on my NC750, 3,000 on my Interceptor, about 10,000 on my Tiger 955 now sold, and so on. There are lots of reasons, and I know many bikers who do less miles than I cycle, their loss, with so many great places to visit, both here and abroad (when allowed ).

My dealer offered me to put my Tiger (2011, 190000km since new) in their museum collection, when I would trade it in for a newer model...
Still riding it, can't say goodbye  :001:

An observation of mine. There are an awfull lot of low milage bikes out there going back to 2011. Why, i ask?

Maybe 'cos most Triumph owners are old farts who've paid off mortgage, kids have flown nest, free to buy bikes, most have 2 or more. Simple enough innit, mebbe low mile bikes, not low mile riders.

Yeah, I think because are more premium priced, the peeps who buy new do so because they intend to use em so dont just sell right away for next fotm.  I got 25k km on mine and consider to below mileage.  Shame it is broken now with a crack in cylinder head dumping oil.

Really makes me consider because my CBX is higher milage, and almost 30 years older without the problems.

Well I've had mine from new - March 2011 & have 96K on it now. By August 2011 I had 11K on it.  Will most likely be selling this year so will be interesting to see what a dealer will offer.

Good luck, took my '99 ST955 for trade-in with 50k, one dealer offered 800, another laughed "What am I going to do with it". I kept it, got a hefty discount without trade-in. It won best bike at Scottish rally following year.

I'm on 2012 with 33k on the clock. Bought it in 2016 with 13k. I love this bike regardless I have had a few issues over the years. Recently treated myself to Nitron shock (why so late?) instead of spending a few grand to change the bike. Will stay with me for foreseable future.

40k miles on my 2016 XCX. Plus 15k miles on my 2013 Bonnie and 1k on my 2013 Honda CRF 250L (bought last month). Tiger is the best bike I've ever had.
