When I was looking I found a surprising number of Tuonos with 2,000 miles. Maybe people buy and decide at 2K that they don't like the bike or maybe they are demonstrators...

Hi Yep but this one is maybe nearly 2 years old?

I got my Racing with only 240 miles on the clock....and it was nine months old. The tyres still had the "fur" and, from it's condition, it looked like all those miles had been done in a showroom or garage.....maybe even a sitting room!

I picked up Duc 996SPS in similar mint condition some years ago. That owner had only owned it for 3 months from new....and had spent a fortune on extras.

It's nice of these buyers to take the initial depreciation for us!
