Possible purchase!

Hey guys,
Iím looking at a 2018 BB with 2700 mi. on it at a dealer.
It was a demo, will be sold as Ďnewí with warranty for $10,600.
Itís definitely been ridden.

What do you guys think?

How much are you saving by buying an ex demo?

Mine is ex demo with 950 miles on the clock, and heated grips. I saved just over £2k on new... so for me it was well worth it.

As long as they give it a service, and the remaining warranty is in force, and itís a good saving on new, go for it..

Sounds pretty good. I didnít really shop around too hard but locally most dealers didnít wanna come down much from sticker. So you are definitely saving a bit from what what I paid..gotta love impulse purchases . Which dealer?

Don’t do it !
Invest money in a car or something less scary then a motorbike, certainly do NOT buy a Triump Bobber, I heard too many good things about it. Be clever and choose a nice 4wheeler.

Better still,

Save yourself the trouble and get a bus-pass...

Once you get a Bobber it's a 'very' slippery slope..

Cheerio,

You may think youíre saving money but, take it from so many of us who know, youíll have so much fun spending cash on mods that youíll totally forget you got a good deal. On the other hand, as long as warranty is in place and dealer rep is good, go for it 👍
