Ive located an 02 M750 Dark thats still at the dealer with no miles for $6650, with the 2 year warranty. Its also fuel injected. Does this sound like a deal? Are there any issues with the 02's that i should know about? How about any issues with fuel injection? Im practically salivating over this machine :)

there's nothing wrong with that bike or the EFI. 800 has more power, though. :) M750ie is unique model/year. that's pretty neat.
Ok, so one vote for finding the $$$ to get this bike, i think :) Whats the difference between the Dark and i.e.? This bike is listed as a "Dark" which i know has a matte black tank, and black frame. Black bikes = Cool :)

I bought my 02 750Sie for $7000, and I thought that was a good deal. So for $6650 it's a no-brainer in my book!! You will love it. The only problem that I have come across is trying to figure out what mods I should spend my money on first....
GO GET THAT BIKE!!

Don't take this seriously....... :D

You will need a laptop to download your computer information for your bike.

I actually think they are very nice. A woman I met has a bootiful Dark 900 ie. I took it for a spin and thought it was very snappy :)

There are some minor cosmetic differences (no seat cowl, no fairing [I think, but it changes year to year]) and a few functional differences, like non-adjustable forks and a different swingarm. The Dark models are usually $500 less than the non-Darks. A good place to do a reality check on prices is at Wilson's: http://www.wilsonsmc.com/2003.htm

Good link. It confirmed the $6650 as a good deal :) So the $500 less for the darks, is that for lack of acutal paint? Non adjustable forks on the darks, is that really a big deal? I figured forks would be a set and forget sort of thing. Even non adj. forks would be 10x stiffer than what im riding now (250ninja-very squishy but still fun)

02M750D- They ROCK!


This is where the problems arise; how many mods can you do to a bike!? ::)

The main reasons the Darks are cheaper is the lack of the fairing and seat cowl, and on the 620 the Dark only has a single-disc front brake (which works damn fine, thank you!). I think Ducati does a great job offering the Dark as a slightly less expensive alternative. If I'd have found that deal I'd have snapped it up. Go for it!

Hey Humbaba,
Yeah, brand new, 1 mile on it, $7000!
They had it listed for $7300, I talked them down to an even $7000 + Tax & Title. I guess they really wanted to get rid of it. When I was in there I was looking at an 02' Tr*umph Speed Triple with 600 miles on it for $8300, Then I saw the Duc and never looked back!
