You may be right, but as I said it really depends on storage conditions like heat. ozone (from urban gasses), and occasional start ups. Likely good? Yes, these are modern machines. Possible issues? Yes, people are lame and store things improperly all the time.Going by what you're saying my 06 999s is one step away from a junkyard, i bought it with 2k miles 2 years ago and all i did was change the belt and valves and it turns out the belt was in as new conditon, you're scaring the poor bastid, those are very good bikes and i'll go as far as saying my '12 pp had more brass than my 16dvt.
mostly cosmetic, I dropped her on the track once so had a bunged up tank and termi exhaust (ouch), and rode her year round in New England and barely washed her, plus there was this weird dash issue where you'd toggle through the modes and there was an extra blank screen to toggle through, techs couldn't figure it out and didn't affect operation but was bothersome. Anyway, after needing another set of fork seals decided it was time to trade her in. Mechanically she was perfect.in what way was she too beaten up? ive been out of the modern Ducati game for a while. last one was a '93 888 that I had too many issue with from work done by a well known Pennsylvania shop. Ive had my '74 750gt for the last 17 years. so yeah, no modern bikes for a while so I don't know what to look for
