Does this look any good?

Hi all, it's been about a year since I was on, and having test ridden a free different bikes since I rode the Turismo, I'm still coming back to mv
- it seems nobody else out there is offering that blend of style, power and comfort. I've also got a stradale and rivale in my crosshairs, but not sure how a 6'4 beast will fare on them.

Anyway, onto my point - I've been keeping an eye out for a good turismo in my price bracket (they all seem really expensive right now) and I just spotted this one:

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F282855132247

Sounds OK on paper, but aside from the terrible photos I'm not sure it's in the best condition? And check out those shoelaces - what's that all about??

Cheers all.

I suspect this has replaced the orignal nylon cord that keep the dzus pin attached to the luggages and which is used to secure them on the bike... I remember @Bumpkin mentioned he has to do something for that on his bike. I suspect he is not alone, as per this picture...

Looks good to me. Ask if the sprag and the clutch switch has been replaced. It may be a good negotiating point if it hasn't. Make an offer.

Not sure sprag is really an issue on TV, compared to other bikes... However, it's important to check that software is up to date. And as for the clutch switch, it's only replaced when there is an issue, and unless you have the full history it will be difficult to know what has been replaced. For information, cost for the clutch switch is about 100€. And rather than trying to get the price down, I would prefer (at least if it was me buying) get a 3-6 month warranty: that is much better than a price reduction. That combined with usage during the warranty period will ensure you get value for the money you spend.

Listing says the service history is available. Have you reviewed it yet?

Some of the pics show significant corrosion to the rotor fasteners, ABS ring, chain, ect..

You'll soon find out Marc, the Hydro Tre toasts the one on the right until it's solid and then it falls to pieces. A bit of thin para cord looks stock but hardens in time too, easy to replace though and only there to stop you loosing the dzus type fastener.

Looks OK TruffleShuffle, maybe ridden though winter judging by the minor corrosion. Check all LEDs are working in the indicators and that the service history is up to date. It'll be due one at 8,000 miles unless done on time rather than mileage, a minor service but still not that cheap at a franchised MV dealer. About £180 IIRC. Check the service record and see.

I'm considering to use the iron cable to secure that once the original cord will be toasted (just the same way as you would secure bolts on a track bike)...

Thanks for the feedback all! Might be worth a look then. It sounds good, so I wonder if it looks worse than it really is - perhaps it just needs a really good tidy up. I've no probably with it being ridden in the winter as I'll be doing that anyway.

BTW, what's going on with prices? This is an almost identical bike (admittedly better looking) and it's over £2k more expensive! What gives?

I have been talking to a number of dealers about trading my mint 2016 TVL 2200 miles and the best part ex price I can find is £8k, even at that price they are worried about giving a warranty to the next owner. I don’t want to think what the bike is worth as a cash sale. I hope you find what you are looking for.
