It has 11000 miles on it all original he is a maticulous bastard about maintanece and up keep hes asking 7250 for it with a rear stand. also hes in his thirties and isnt a maniac on his bikes (i ride with him so i know his habits) does this sound like a good deal???

Its not a bad deal depending on year, but it does have alot miles for a 748, most of the second hand ones out
there are 7k or below for miles, guess they dont get ridden much. If its in great shape and already had the 12k
service done then 7k for it might be so bad. If it needs the 12k service I would not pay that much for it. Have
you ridden it, its way different than a S2R. I love mine, but like it better as a track only bike. I used to ride on
the street alot, but its really made for the racetrack.

If he does a proper service, if you like it, then it's a good deal. But check on the rocker arm wear during the service.

Unless it has a list of expensive upgrades, it seems priced above market.

Depending on the year, you may wish to stand by on an offer until the 1098 comes out. That model will surely depreciated the current superbike line up, but it's only a question of how much.

Also, the flaking rocker issues should be addressed because this is a 1000 dollar plus fix...
