Gents,

Downsized to Versys  :blink: so its got to go.

 

21000 miles.

MOT due June but extended 6 months.

 

Good:

No oil/coolant/ anything leaks.

Doesn't drink oil!

Recent DID/ JT chain and sprockets and Avon Storm tyres.

Kappa monokey mount (on modified Rentec?rack) and hoomungus 52L box.

original grab handle included.

Shiny :)

 

Bad:

Whiney third - but no issues.

scrape (not broken) on LH side fairing (from when I forgot to put the side stand down ) 

Frame rusty' paint flaking in patches underneath.

Discs scored but MOT worthy so far.

 

Summary:

Great motor and ride, whine in third, shiny on top, ugly underneath.

 

 

£1100. (Advertised elsewhere for 1400)

 

Close up video of all nasty bits available if you really want to look :)

Sorry only just seen this. 

I did buy a 2010 MK1 from the local main dealer. But someone noticed something odd about it and after a close look it turned out to be 2010 MK2 with tank/headlamp/plastics etc from a MK1  :unsure2:

When I enquired about these ..er discrepancies, they said the previous owner had changed the plastics because they were scratched! :um:

I politely asked for a refund. and now just waiting for the money to land back in my bank before I can search for another preferably local to me.

But I just discovered the Honda NC700s which is intriguing me ...
