There is a Yamaha dealership here that took a black super clean 2010 S in on trade about a year ago. It has new rubber and looks brand new. I guess it was owned by a pilot that used it to commute to the airport.
I wasn't able to ride it the day I was there, but they are asking $7500 and said the lowest they could go is $6700. Would you consider a 2010 with that many miles for that price? I told them I would be willing to pay $5500.

The service intervals are 15,000 miles, which means that you're due for the major service interval at 45,000 miles. That service interval will likely cost you $1200. With those number of miles, I would also check the bearings, because if the rear hub needs their bearings replaced, then you have to either go to a shop that knows how to replace the bearings or replace the entire unit. Ducati recommends that you replace the entire unit. Honestly, I would pay $5,500.00 but not a penny more. Because, $5,500 is really like $6,700...UNLESS they include that major service, which is unlikely. The S model also had ohlins, which at this point might be need to be rebuilt. Honestly, unless you can do all the work, I would stay away from it. Save a little more and buy one for $7k with low mileage. U can usually find a decent deal with some older gentlemen that has money but really doesn't ride it.

agree ..........At 44000miles you will need all the service records and hopefully the major services would show up there as well . if so its worth considering at $5500 to $6500 ....if not it would be a gamble at any price ...

Honestly I would not consider that bike because I believe there are better deals out there. Not in your neighborhood but an example:

yes, thank you all. And it actually has 55,000 miles not 44,000.

There is another 2010S about 3.5 hours way with 10,000 miles and for $7k

And a 2007 1100S (what can I say I love the vibe of the air cooled too) for around $4500.

Also considering a used 2016 S 1000 XR that is setup really nicely for my tall height (has a tall after market seat and all the features) for $10,500.

Lastly there are two 2016 MSE for sale locally at a dealership that were demos and do not have warranty for $15k.

What got me in this spot of needing a sport touring bike was selling my 09 Multi S to buy a 2019 Triumph scrambler 1200 XE because it was a good deal and fit my tall frame so well. I should have known that the type of riding i like is more sport touring based vs "adventure".

Personally would take medium miles over ultra low as any issues would've shown and taken care of.

1. How many miles are you planning on riding? Because, those 7500 mile valve adjustments arent cheap. I would lay out a four year plan on what you plan on using it for, what trips, how far, etc. Maybe, calculate out maintenance for all the bikes and that should play a major role

2. I would expand your search, think of it as a road trip that you will never forget. I found a 2017 950 multistrada on cycle trader for $6500. The main reason for buying my 09 multistrada was I placed a bullshit bid on ebay and won it at $2600, otherwise I would have gone for 2014 with skyhook suspension or enduro pro. Now, I haven't ridden either of those bikes, but I absolutely love the riding position of my multistrada.

That is a good idea creating a matrix of sorts with maintenance costs. Thank you. One plus with the air cooled Ducs is that the best Duc mechanic in my area no longer works for a Ducati dealership but does side work out of his garage on air cooled only and it's much less expensive.
