    If I can share my humble opinion, an earlier one that's been gone through by someone like Noland or Amuri would be a better bet than a newer one that hasn't been gone through. I say this because I bought an 09 believing it would have less problems - but I had to have the motor rebuilt with only 3500 miles on the clock. Pistons, liners, bearings were all bad.

    Good luck in your search!

    I had an 07, bought new, resealed in 08 under warranty, 2015 NWTC opened it up and refreshed it. Sold later thatbyear. 200+ hours...mostly track time. Still running good last i knew. They will all need some kind of attention sooner or later...do some homework before purchasing. It is a racebike with lights and with that comes more maintenance. Personally i would search for an early one that Allen has already looked over.

    Right. Thanks for all the information I will definitely do more research. I just want a appealing supermoto that can move fast in nyc streeets. I will not race it on a track just daily commute . Probably 200 -400 only miles a month.i do not like how the ktm looks nor the DR-Z400. I had a wr250x but it’s too slow for me . And I would consider a wr450 but I want to register this bike so due to the fact I’m in nyc it’ll be harder so that’s out the picture.
