They've not been around that long and most folk that have bought them are more than happy to continue the experience,,,
So, I was wondering how many have been offered for sale used, and, how many people have bought pre-owned Scramblers.

If so, what has been your experience buying and with your used Scrambler ?

I picked an Icon up with just over 3000 kilometers on it in perfect condition, pre-owned by an enthusiast that looked after the bike very well.
It was run in correctly, had a few of the basic mods already done plus a little more, and was ready to go.
For me, it was a far better deal than buying a new one from the dealer 800 Km away and having to go through the run in and first service drama so far from the dealer and no time to mess with that .
No real disappointments other than a couple of screws that where fitted with RED loktite that caused a little drama removing, broke the plastic nut holders they were screwed into,,, easy fix but annoying.

These machines are excellent value and a really nice little ride, I'm quite pleased with mine, better than expected for the price.

Let the discussion roll !

I intended to buy used from the start, not too picky on the model knowing I'd be changing things anyway. I found a Full Throttle about 2 hours down the road and jumped on it pretty quick. I'm tickled with the bike so far, but have only put 1000 miles on it. Trying to rush winter along.

Sounds like you also had a good score there Sarah.

I think I was very lucky, I put the feelers out and all that turned up for a while were demo units from dealers around Australia, at near to new prices. Then bingo, a private sale came up on bikesales.com with exactly what I was looking for at a fair price, and yes, I jumped on it pretty quick too.

Bought mine last April with 700 miles on in immaculate condition, first service done also fit with ducati bikini fairing and heated grips, only paid £5900 for a 2.5 month old bike when people were still on the waiting list. Well chuffed with the bike, in fact I love it.
