Probably A$5000-6000 so it seems they do have some collectibility. 30-45% of new price over twenty years is very little depreciation.
Used Motorcycle Research - Compare Used Motorcycles - New and used motorcycle prices - RedBook.com.au
I have found Redbook's numbers are a bit higher than the actual market is paying though.

I did the shoulder in '04 on the track :-)
Also done the left collarbone twice so it's all pretty lumpy now :-)
