    UK 2nd hand fighter - yes or no

    Hi folks,

    First time poster, been reading for a while.

    I'm looking to pick up a 848 Streetfighter here in the UK and always wanted to buy new.... No real reason, just a personal preference however I came across this deal the other day - Used Bikes - Ducati Coventry - West Midlands Motorcycle Dealership

    Seems too good to be true no? A real bargain considering the Termi slip ons are included.

    What am I missing? Is this some track day toy that's been ragged for its first 900 miles?!

    Thoughts appreciated,

    Cheers,

    Jjs1609

    Highly doubt it.
    It seems some just choose their bike poorly and then go wanting for something else!

    I'd be surprised, too. I think tak_one's on the money. If the price is good, it's definitely worth a look - and a test ride!

    Tyres still OEM? How are those chicken strips? Nothing obviously worn or damaged? Can you get it independently tested by a reputable service?

    I'd be tempted.

    A storming price.
    Definately worth a good long look.
