I wouldn't be worried about the reliability, aside from some teething issues with the first year those 1200 Multis have a solid track record. Something you may want to consider if you decided to keep and ride it is availability of replacement parts. It's a limited edition of a 9 year old bike. Every panel on it is unique to the Pikes Peak version, and I'd be willing to bet that by now, some of them are in short supply. A garage tip over could turn in to a major problem.
