Bikes and K's

  1. Arvo,

    long time reader, lost my other account details :)

    I'm looking at a 1098 couple years old. Does anyone have any insight into how many K's would be reasonable on a 2K8 model? How many would be too many?

    I'd be putting roughly 7.5 - 9k per year on it.


  2. For something built in 2008 by a major manufacturer I don't think you'll need to worry about km's.

    Engines are built much better these days and should last longer under more (ab)use. As long as theres no signs of a drop, everything is working and it tracks nice and straight.. you're sweet (y)

    Unless it was used as a postie/courier bike and racked up over 100,000kms :p though I kinda doubt that
  3. 1098 2 years old...4months a year in the shop...December through February latte trips... 10kms a piece...Approximately 30 rides...so 300Kms? 8-[

    Just check that the major services have been done.
  4. Haha James :)

    Sounds like the advice I wanted to hear!

  5. Wouldnt you just look on bikesales or trading post to see what the average is?
  6. RedBook base their valuations on 8500 - 10500 Kms a year and I would agree with the guys...make sure its got a service history.
  7. Who buys a Ducati and doesn't keep their log books?
