Both my bikes still had factory warranty when i acquired them so that provided some piece of mind.

I've owned many motos over the years and about half I've purchased second hand. Given the depreciation we all see when we buy new I think the second hand market is such a great thing. It provides folks the means to enjoy and experience some amazing machines that they might not otherwise have a chance to new from the dealer.

I also try to keep my machines immaculate too always thinking about the next owner and try to offer fair prices (that are even a tad below market for a quick and easy sale). Seeing the next owner fall in love at first sight is an awesome thing and maybe that "good karma" gets passed back to me.

So in short if you're looking for a used bike, BUY FROM ME!!

I have a 1299 Panigale R Final Edition that has just 250 miles on the clock. Should be up for sale in no time
Let me know when you read but only if it comes with the gold wheels!

Yeah funny about wheels and the colour/color preferences we have. I myself think wheels should be plain black, that's why I had black OZ wheels on my 959 and looked for black forged wheels for my 1199.

Found some 1299s wheels and hid the red stripe on them, happy now.

I would think the risk of buying a used Ducati, especially these models, would be less than the average sportbike because their owners tend to be enthusiasts that have the means and knowledge to properly care for the bike. And, because many of them have the means and get bored easily, like KMY, provide excellent and exciting buys for enthusiasts (and would be enthusiasts) with less means (but smarter) for buying new. I'm too fussy (and kinda stupid) for buying used unless I'm forced to because the new ones are gone.
Thanks from KMY
