Buying a second hand cb125e

  1. Hello!
    I'm a new rider, looking to buy my first bike. Had my eye on a spada or maybe a yamaha virgo (something 250cc) but I'm leaning towards a cb125e. Mainly because of fuel economy, price, and I drive like an old man. I've seen a couple of 2nd hand ones that have 1000kms on the clock for $2000 and with 20 months warranty remaining.

    My question is what things/ issues should I look out for when buying? I've had a look at the buyer evaluation guide https://netrider.net.au/articles/?page=used_bike_guide and the only things I think are relevant are the tires and brakes? Since they have at least 20 months warranty I don't need to worry about most of the other issues? What advice do you guys have for me if I decide to get one?

    I thought about asking whether or not its been raced, but that would be a joke right?
