I may have the opportunity to purchase a 750 oro Brutale with zero miles on the clock but I have got no idea about a price for it, can anyone give me what a fair price to pay for it would be, it's in a private collection and would have to import it to the uk which wouldn't be a problem.
I have no idea how much they sold for originally or what a decent price would be to pay for one.
Thanks in advance for any help

$40,000 plus in the US when new.

You'd not be buying a motorcycle, you'd be buying Industrial Art. A zero mile Oro has transcended from a motorcycle (if it ever was) to an investment article. The question I'd answer is, "do you like motorcycle art at it's finest, or do you want a motorcycle to ride"? Please don't consider commissioning the bike for riding. There's only a VERY limited number of Oros like that one, whereas,there are thousands of rideable Brutales at all price ranges available to ride and/or customize.

Furthermore, the price can't be too high....only too early. That bike will never depreciate from today's high price. Might you pay too much? Sure, but tell me where you can buy its twin? I paid a blue fortune for an investment class '79 CBX with 600 miles on the clock. My buds questioned my sanity when I bought it. Seven years later, and 700 miles of riding later, I sold it for a 25% profit. Not a great return on investment, but I bought a bike to enjoy, which I certainly did.

That being said, it's your money, and your choice to do as you wish.

As an investment you would be better off putting your money in a savings account at the local bank. With the exception of perhaps the Ducati Sport Classic and Honda Rune, there are no production bikes less than 20 years old which have appreciated $1 in value. That's a long time to get any sort of return on an investment. Personally, as with many limited edition bikes produced by Italian manufacturers (Ducati & MV Sennas, Ducati MHE), I consider them a marketing ploy.

Having said that, I am also of the belief that you buy the bike you wish to own (and can afford). The reason you wish to own it is entirely up to you. In other words, if you want to park it in the office to admire it when you need a pick me up, have some cred with other people beause you own a particular bike, the exclusivity of a bike or wish to ride it like you stole it is fine by me. Your money, your bike. For me it must be a rider but I choose when I ride it.

In the US the Honda GB500 is selling for more than it cost new. So is the Harley retro SuperGlide. I've owned both a Rune and a Sport Classic, and regret selling both. The Rune had a US MSRP of $25,000, and a nice one can be bought today in the high teens. I bought mine new below $20K because Honda couldn't give them away when I bought mine. I've been looking at replacing mine, but I haven't found a nice enough one to buy.

Believe it or not, I can sell my '04 Ruckus for more today than the $1500 I paid back in '04. New Ruckus' cost north of $2500 today.

Closer to the point....the last few F4CC's actually sold for something around the mid $60's after they had sat around for a couple of years......and they'll likely bring close to that today if in perfect low mileage condition. I don't think the CC will ever be cheaper than it is today. Same for the Tambo, Ago, and Sennas......as well as the Oros.
