Bottom line is when u buy a demo you are taking a gamble, could be a great bike or not. If the coins are worth it to u go for it. Really its still too much money to gamble on maybe a good breakin or maybe not. Your money.

Køb den...

Hi Jesper.

I bought a 2012 demo in February this year. It had even been dropped and had scratches on the fairing panels. It's riding great, there's been no issues with it, and the warranty started from the day I bought it. I'd say go for it if you trust the dealer.

Actually I'm moving my bike with me to Denmark soon, so ping me back if you want to go riding in the Roskilde area :-)

Mvh, Thomas

I mean most people would want to test the engines capabilities when trying out the demo machine, so I assume it would be more worn out?
What do you think?

Jesper

I am looking at the possibility of a 650 ex-demo, but for a 2012 model, the discounts suck pushing me to a 2011 or 10.
Its almost like they are pushing an owner to a new 700 and the demo's they don't mind sitting around. Give or take a few hundred bucks between the two is what i am seeing...20% would make it worth it for me.

Here's the Deal Vettel. (kind of a repeat of my previous post I just realized )

In Canada anyway, the Demo bikes are put up for private auction amongst all the Canadian BMW Dealers. The winning Dealer can ask whatever they feel like for the bike. Usually at a much bigger profit margin than on a new one. You can try to deal with them on price but it's really up to the market, just like a private sale. My 800 offroad test bike was quite beat up. I bought it "as is" with the Dealer selling me the parts at cost to fix it. In the end I got a one yr old bike with 10K kms on it for half price by the time it was certified. Still a deal and has been great.

See what kind of a deal you can get. Maybe you can get some free accessories or?

Appreciated. Just seems odd that they can charge 2013 prices almost for a 2012 used, and replaced bike. We'll see what the spring brings. Right now i have a meter of snow outside to lose first!
