I currently have a M2 and have had a P3 and S2.
I am thinking I want a CR due to the HP.
What I do not understand is why the 1125 is around the same price as the XB in some cases even cheaper? Why?

I find it easier to spot a dirt cheap XB than 1125 due to the XB being around longer and having more production. I've seen more than a few sub $2k XBs I've been tempted to pick up, but I haven't seen any 1125s that cheap that weren't wrapped around a pole.
Some people think they have gold and price their bikes ridiculously (like the 2007 Ulysses that the owner wants $7k for).
For a given year and mileage, XBs and 1125s seem to be about matched in resale value, so just keep shopping around until you find the right bike.

1125 stator issues, clutch weep etc..
XB no problems

1125r is scary powerful! Xb not as much. People buy the 1125R and scare the crap out of themselves and then sell them on the cheep.

I bought a M2 in 2009 and 1125r this past May. Wow, what a difference.
Put almost as many miles on R in 6 months as I did on the M2 in 8 yrs.
I've seen XB prices creep up slightly, although a lot of XBR's on the cheep lately ($2-3k).
R/CR's are anywhere from $3500-5500 but most seem to go around $4k or $5k with rotor fix.
Parts I imagine are a big factor, plus not many Harley fans care for the Rotax engine.
I get a lot of strange looks when I pull up to the Harley dealer or biker bars...lol.

I traded an o3 xb12s even up for an 09 1125cr. Kinda wish I had kept the Xb now.
