XTZ 750 and high mileage

The bike is 1991 and I can get it for a thousand. It seems to be quite clean but has 26,000 miles on the clock. I wonder if it is considered high for a Tenere or not.

This is really low mileage. Tenere can do a whole lot more than that. If the bike seems in good shape and serviced, than should be ok.

Terrible

Someone could always say....."Yeah mate, Terribly high mileage that one, a dog for sure, not worff my time mate, I couldn't even take it off your hands......" Ha Ha Ha.!

It's barely run in for a 750 and if it's been serviced and not crashed go for it! Not want it.......? Send me the details. been looking for something like that for a while.

Oohh man. I think I have made my mind.
I was thinking about ducati monster 900, 2000 year with only 9000 miles on the clock or this Tenere. But the truth is I fancy Tenere more. I just was not sure if those 1990 were so reliable.

Hi mate, have to agree with the others, no mileage at all for the S10 (Super Tenere). Sold my own a few months ago and looking another so if you don't buy it let me know where it is for me to get!

Pop over to Super Tenere Owners when you get a chance, lots of knowledge about them there.
