Hi mate. These are a great bike. I , as many of the ppl here got mine brand new, and after 4000kms of riding the engine has broken in very nicely and is more powerful than the day I got it. Go for it. I've had mine since june and it has given me no grief other than a factory recall on the solenoid which was fixed in about 15mins. The bike you purchase will no doubt have had its solenoid changed already, but it might pay to ask.
