    Bargain HP4 NOT!

    Happened upon a secondhand bike dealer I hadn't been into before this morning and won't be going into again, spotted an HP4 Carbon so felt duty bound to have a look over it, I've seen learner bikes better looked after and with less tat thrown at them, but best of all the price, 17 grand.......

    Tbh it doesnít look that bad. Motografix kit looks balls but protects the paint and can be took off. If itís low miles and all the original kit comes with it then it should be worth 16.5k to 17k

    I have had 2 bmw cars with no issues. Still have one and it has no issues. ‘Full of faults’ is fairly damning, I guess you have had problems, what issues have you had with bmw cars?

    On a separate note, no interest in my hp4 despite it being in truly mint condition, 15k miles for a 5 year old bike appears to be too much mileage, 3000 miles a year is nothing, puts me off wanting to buy anything collectable because you cant actually use it before selling it on. Bonkers.
