Sounds high for a bike that doesn't run right/needs fixin'. You can find a better deal if you stay patient.

Want Husky 510SMR or KTM 690 SMC to continue the hooligan activity






You could buy it for a decoy... make it all shiny and let the bike thieves steal that instead of the other bike you choose. Not a bad security measure... though they might be when they find out it doesn't run and come back to get your pretty ducati....
