Hey sorry for asking this, I should probably know the answer to this, but I just want to double check.
There's a dealer in Toronto selling a 2001 Ducati 996S right now. It looks pretty clean with no gaudy stickers or questionable aftermarket upgrades.
The bike is "Certified with warranty. ONLY 7,432 Miles" Seems like a very nice example of what to me is a timeless classic (like a good Porsche 993).
Anyway, I'm a guy with basically no mechanical ability. I'd have to go to a dealership for any issues. So...
1) Will this bike be prone to lots of little problems and break-downs? Or are they pretty bullet proof and reliable?
2) If someone knocks it over will it be a real pain in the butt finding replacement fairings, mirrors, tanks, tail sections etc, or are the parts common and easily available?
Sorry to ask this, I should know better but I'd really love the advice of some of the members on here.
Thanks in advance!
