Consider the saying; if you can't buy it twice, you can't afford it.

You're asking everyone to look in a crystal ball. I don't recommend it; I would do it if I thought there was a good chance of getting just most of my investment back. But I would be riding it occasionally too and at least once on the track. I just wouldn't ride it at 90-100% pace. It's very difficult to sell expensive sportbikes unless you practically give them away.

I had the same question when I looked into buying the FE.
I bought it, it sat in my garage all ridged winter.
I was not going to run it on the road nor the track.
Then I realized it doesn't really matter. Why sit on such an amazing machine and not enjoy it. I've spent hard earned money on less practical things than a smile, an opportunity and joy. Hell I had a marriage last 3 weeks and lost almost 30k.
IF you want to enjoy something exclusive buy it and ride it. Don't buy it because you think it will be worth 400k one day. In reality, it probably won't be.
I ride my FE at 70% of my pace on the track. I enjoy the bike for what it is, the pinnacle of what a L2 can be.
Thanks from youngR, SuperDuc29 and KarlKani

I was only trying to see how everybody thinks and their input / preference. Not crystal ball things.

Well I can afford it twice and many other things but I donít buy the same T-shirt twice let alone an expensive thrill. There is no point in that.

Duly noted and a well thought advice.

if you have the fund, then do it and enjoy it.

As far as for investment, well...take a look at the Desmo RR from 10 years ago. Its still only around 40-60k USD and there was nothing like Desmo RR. 60k being very very low mile.

Are you ok with in 2028, your SL being same $ or maybe even lower than what you bought it for?

Wouldn't say its a decent investment, it may be the ultimate race twin in the end but the end may be a long way off, I have one and if you can afford to buy one its worth it just to sit and look at it, but its a shame for such a bike to be bought for an investment its made to be ridden and people love to see it out and about, but its a hard bike to be out and about on unless you live in the arctic!

Bear this in mind I paid in 07 47k eur for a BMW 325i M sport, fully loaded, I sold it with 135,000 kms and in perfect condition in 2015 for 8k........
No one seems to think twice to buy BMWs etc and lose their ass on it so whats the problem with a 80k bike which keeps most if not all its value.
