Bike sales in general have fallen off a cliff. The economy is bad, unemployment is up, and those still employed are scared about becoming unemployed. People can't get home equity loans to spend gobs of fake money. To most, motorcycles are mostly optional recreational vehicles, not a necessity. Add to this the fact that you're talking about one of the highest priced models in a luxury brand and you can see why it's bad for sellers.
Also, the unemployed are probably selling off their vehicles to make ends meet, so you've also got more sellers increasing supply.
Less buyers + less jobs + less money + less credit + higher inventory = low prices.
As others have pointed out, you're also going to take a big hit trying to sell the farkles with the bike. The customizations you've done are extremely unlikely to be the same customizations someone else wants to pay for. Like everything else in life, to get the most cash you will have to do the most work and pull off that which can be pulled off and sold separately.
Sorry to lay a depressing dose of reality on you, but that's the way I see things now. It's a buyer's market. I don't think any of this is the bike's fault.
