New F4S 750 just out of the box since 2000 - a bargain?

Hello all,

while searching for a good '00 F4S 750, I found one with 0 miles, never driven.

Is this a bargain or a potential risk (corrosion by cooling liquid, demaged bearings,...)?

It's still an old bike, and depending on the climate, bit will have aged... Fluids should all be immediately changed. Has it ever had gas in it, and did the gas just sit there since 2000?

Does MV use a different weight oil for break-in period? That factory oil has been sitting there gathering bacteria, and the coolant has been aging. The tires will be hard.
