Getting a used Monster - question about its fuel tank

Hi guys,
There is one 2014 Monster 1200 that came up which I am rather interested in getting, however, I am a little apprehensive about its fuel tank as it does not have all the original logos on. Now, I am not sure if I'm over-thinking that the tank is not original (sign that it has been in an accident before), or should it be safe to go for it?

Are the logos/stickers easily replaceable should I want to change them back to the original ones?

Some pictures as attached to explain better:
There is no "1200" logo at the top of the tank:

The "Ducati Monster" is just a sticker on the tank, as opposed to the 3 dimensional one in the original


All comments and views welcomed to help a newbie to Ducati out! Thank you!

those stock 3d stickers are flimsy and get removed after awhile.

I have a 2014 Monster 1200. The Ducati logo on sides of the tank is the same look, only black. It does not say Monster. There is a small red white green 1200 logo thing between tank filler and key too. Actually it does not say Monster anywhere on the bike. Except on the mounts for the aftermarket windscreen I put on.

I am the second owner, but the first owner only put on 2400 miles in 3 years. Put on a tank protector pad, and bar end mirrors. Pretty sure he did nothing else to it.

2nd what lowprofile said. It's taken some effort to keep the OEM 3d decals attached to the tank (usually a quick heat gun treatment every couple months).

Sometimes you have to just let the arrow fly...
