    Need some quick purchasing advice

    My local BMW dealer has a 2017 with heated seats, top box, and some other goodies with 9,000 miles. Asking $12K.

    First question is reliability/issues. With 9K on the clock what do I need to be concerned with? I will use this bike for long two up trips, it needs to be dead nuts reliable or I do't want it.

    What would be a fair price?

    I paid less than that for my 2017 new in August of 2017. That said I would think somewhere between 10 and 11k would be fair. You won’t be disappointed in long trips as this bike is quite comfy and has plenty of power for two up. Decent fuel mileage with a big tank. Great suspension and xm radio or Bluetooth from your device. If you buy it make sure it has had its 10k service. Good luck.

    With 9k on the ODO, I doubt it has had the 10K service. How much should I expect to pay for that?

    Various prices from dealer to dealer. Anywhere between 4and 6 hundred. If the dealer who has it is a Triumph dealer have him throw it in the deal or use it to lower the price from current dealer saying that is something you will have to pay for soon after purchase.

    Or if you're handy at all negotiate the price down for the service and do it yourself.

    The bike is worth what you want to pay for it, but regards reliability, I did a short trip, ""compared to some folk here", across Europe August just gone, close to 5 thousand miles, full luggage and two up, the bike returned around 55 -57mpg and it didn't even break into a sweat, on the German autobahns doing 100mph, another twist of the throttle and we was looking at 120 no problem in seconds.  :152:

    The bike is good, but Triumph have washed their hands of it in my opinion. Insist on the 10k service being done and offer $9k then walk away. I love mine, but it is worthless and will keep it till it drops which should be at 150k or so.

    Paid 10k for mine with 2500 miles on a 17 plate. Mine doesn't have the heated seats though but it did have it's annual service done. 12k sounds a bit high.
