Only in the alternate universe of collectors would the slower cars with less compression, no intercooler, smaller brakes, and less displacement be worth more money.
But OK, the market has spoken... and units produced has something to do with it, I'm sure. But we are hair-splitting here anyway. The lambda system, although prompted by EPA regs, was another improvement actually, and drops out of the equation in full throttle open loop anyway.
But for the factory catalytic convertors post-86, the responsiveness between the model years would probably be nearly indistinguishable.
Tony, Rennlist appears to be more concours"save-it-for-the-next-guy" oriented. You would probably get more nibbles there than amongst the unwashed here.

When I was looking for my 930 12 years ago now, I couldn't have cared less what year it was. Still don't. Even the "gray market" thing, which was a big deal a decade ago, seems to have worked itself out in the wash and doesn't pop up much anymore.
1986 930, 1969 Mach1, 2003 540 Sport, 2016 R1200RS
