I would have a body aligner check the frame at swing arm or elsewhere is not bent- they simply run a string or straight angles from front to rear. I was looking at buying at 1098 in the past and had it inspected- there was 12.5mm (overall 25mm) misalignment - the body straightener and a reputable ducati specialist her in Australia agreed they allow 4-6mm misalignment max. This damage can occur from accidents as mentioned and will affect handling- an experienced rider will pick it- difference in cornering left to right etc.

Local dealer did an estimate for free and the insurance is allowing me to do my own work. New to me forged wheels from an 1098 installed yesterday and other goodies on the way!!! I did not buy
