Welcome aboard!

No such thing as an '07 750. All '07s are 910.

If it's a 750, it's likely an 04 or 05 like mine, at least with such low miles. I don't know the full production range of the 750's, so it's possible it could be older. I got mine a year ago for $9000 with a jacket, bike had 1700 mi. and was in great shape.

The 750's from what I hear don't get great fuel economy compared to the 910's (I believe I'm in the 22-27 mpg range.)

The bike itself is fantastic, but it's a relatively technical ride, it prefers a rider who knows what he's doing. (Anybody disagree?)

It really depends what you're looking for in a bike, and what your past riding experience is. Suspension is pretty rough, throttle is a little twitchy sometimes. I'm not complaining though, ride one, you'll fall in love.

Is this bike listed online where we could take a gander?

Look elsewhere - Don't buy a bike from a dealer who either lies about the year, or doesn't know.

Otherwise, any Brutale will bring unlimited smiles to your face.

Personally I'd recommend buying only from an authorized MV dealer. Then again that may be easier said than done.

If they don't even know what year it is, are you going to trust them to work on it? Considering they have the title (or at least a copy), they DO know what year it is and are probably trying to make you think it's a steal for an '07.

To be fair they say it's on an '07 plate. This often happens with specialised bikes. I'm sure if you speak to them or get the chasis number you can check out the real age and history. I doubt they'd be too interested in servicing it anyway they probably just took it in part ex.

Just check the VIN. It's on the steering column.
