Looking to buy a Monster: Should I go used or new?

1946 Views 8 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  rgeg
I'm looking at a 2004 Monster 1000S for around 6k with 5k miles. I'm debating whether I should go ahead and get this used one or buy a new one like the S2. In your opinion, is the 04 1000S a good bike? Is it better than the S2 800?

after hearing all the problems with the xx9 range of superbikes i would hesitate to say the cagiva era bikes (which were from 85 thru 97 ) are of a lower build quality. also, the right 2nd hand bike, one with a service history by a DECENT dealer/mechanic is worth considering as the potential bugs have been ironed out and, as was said before, you save on depreciation.
