I am getting some money next year. Should i buy a new xsr700 or wait for a used 700 or 900? In canada
It's always better to hop on a good deal if you can find one! The CP2 engine has been on the road for 5 years now and is bulletproof. The problem is no one wants to sell them once they have them! As always look for service history and make sure owner wasn't an idiot. Good Luck!I am getting some money next year. Should i buy a new xsr700 or wait for a used 700 or 900? In canada
Depends who's been riding it! Most demo bikes will have been ridden pretty hard from 0 miles - not generally a good thing. But that's reflected in their price, so you take a chance. A 'one private owner' used bike could also have been hammered. The XSR is less likely to suffer the kind of abuse a sports bike might, so it ought to be a reasonably safe used buy. You have to weigh up whether the saving is worth the risk - I've had several used bikes including ex demos without any issues. Some dealers will add a few accessories to their demo bikes which makes them easier to shift later - they also have more leeway on price as manufacturers will usually discount demo bikes provided to the dealer, so try haggling hard!I saw a demo model for decent price, has 5000 km. Do demos take a beating?
