    Picked up a 2017 S1000XR last week with 605 miles on it, mint.
    I've been riding a 2018 1260s Multistrada since 2018 and love it, I would say the suspension is better on the Ducati, more options and more pliant on rough roads, but I have to say the S1000XR is fantastic, love the noise, even on a standard pipe, love the gearbox, the handling is exceptional.
    Although it's often labelled as an adventure bike, I have to say that's a bit like putting cargo shorts and fell running shoes on Usain Bolt and calling him a mountaineer!
    Have fun out there.

    Welcome!

    That is a strange one - a 2017 bike with a 600 miles on.   Any story to explain the lack of miles?

    Enjoy! :028:

    Father in laws bike, bought it, got vertigo and decided it was too tall for him. Only took it for MOTs. Finally decided to trade it on something else, I said get a dealer quote and if the numbers good I’ll match it. The number was good, I got it and I had doubled the mileage in 4 days! 😂🤣😂
