Need some advice on a 2006 Wee purchase, please...
The local dealer has a used 2006 wee with 24,500 miles. There is no available service history. The bike looks as though it has not been down and is in good cosmetic condition.
A test ride (my first on a Vstrom of any kind) went fine...no obvious mechanical issues other than both the brake and clutch levers needed to be pulled all the way to the grips. This made for a weak front braking experience. The bike pulled strong, has no obvious leaks, just a moderate bar vibration at highway speeds.
The chain looks in dire need of lube, but everything else looked ok. Tires are about 50%. Asking Price is 4500, but could possible get it for around 4k. No farkles.
I'm super interested in the 2012, but would rather wait for some real owner's reports plus I really want a bike sooner. Just sold a KLR and am currently commuting on a 2006 Vespa GTS250 (super fun, but not near as comfortable at hwy speeds) I would consider trading in...
Any advice? Thanks in advance!!!
