You can buy a passable new car for that price.

I like innovative machines; but it isn't really much new;
And I could buy this for nearly €3000 less and it's twice as useful and practical

Thanks for all the info. I must say that almost all this type of machine, The prices are a bit of a shock. The reason for looking at something lower is due to old age I find it painful and difficult to get my leg over the bike, a moto guzzi. As this most probably be the last bike I shall ride, it has to be right.The weight must be low and balanced, feel like a motorcycle, so I get the max thrills taking the bends.I really like the threewheelers that tip over , but they are not cheap. I was hoping I could get a deal at this time of the year. icon_thanks

Old age, Stiff joints, getting less power in muscles, balance at a stand still. If the machine is top heavy. icon_Hi ya!
