So my local ducati dealer has a 2006 monster s4r with 600 miles on the clock. The bike is flawless. It has GPR slipons, a open clutch cover, and some more carbon fiber bling. There asking 8000$ but i talked them down to 7100$. What do you guys think.

P.S- how are GPR exhaust quality wise and sound wise?

I'd go Ducati over Triumph any day, all day. Especially for $2400 in your pocket. Have the belts been changed? It's obviously been sitting, they need to be changed. What color?

The bike your talking about is modified so its hard to tell. I don't recommend mods before the engine opens up. My buddy had a bad time with his s4r as far has reliability. Also all the screws rust over time.

Regarding the belts; Ducati specs: 6k miles or 2 years witchever comes first.

Obviously if it's still the original belts (after a mere 600 miles I supposed so), they HAVE to be changed.

On relability, never heard any problems specific to this model/year.

Everyone has there opinion, but $7000+sales tax+maintenance, your looking at about $8000. If your going to finance $8000 you are going to pay over $1000 interest and rates will be at least 8%. So now your up to $9000. I would play it safe and get a bike with a warranty and low interest rate for financing. Also ask the dealer how long the bike has been sitting on there floor. But this is only my opinion...

Deal

RCELNK,
Do you know this bike? Sounds like it to me.
If your any kind of a wrench you can do most of the work yourself. I think it's worth it

SMCDAMMITT,

You don't need to know the bike to know the math. Im on this forum to get information and to give necessary information to those who need it.

If know now someone that has a problem with a bike, i'd like to share that so other people don't make the same mistake.
