Buying K1200S with high mileage

Hi Guys
I am considering to buy a 2008 K1200S with 100,000 Km on the clock
They guy gas complete history and asking $4000 for the bike
The guy is no more riding due to age
Please advise if K1200S with maintenance history will be ok to buy
Further any idea how many kms are too many for the model
Thanks

As long as the preventive maintenance has been done you can get another 100,000Km out of it. Unless the bike is in mint condition $4000 is high for a bike with that many miles.

2900$, K12S bikes do not command much money. Keep in mind you are buying one of the most expensive bikes to maintain. Tires every 6000 kilometers, time consuming and technically complicated engine to work on. But fun!

tire guy, I'll mount your tires.
