Taxes will have an impact on the second hand market, by your own reasoning.  If a new bike is 10% higher cost due to import tax, then its likely this will push up used prices.

yup you got it. 
At this point we don't know what the rate will be so it's more of a thought experiment however; we can guess it the treasury can squeeze more money out of use they will.
After over thirty + years behind the bars, there's still lots to do and see.
