All posts for the month March, 2014

Buying a ‘previously owned’ or ‘used’ motorcycle or scooter doesn’t necessarily mean you’re getting a ride that already has a ton of miles on it.

At SF Moto, we currently have close to a dozen previously owned bikes with less than 1,000 miles on them! In January, we featured a green 2012 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R with only 155 miles on it, and last month a blue 2013 Yamaha 600 FZ6 FZ6R with only 424 miles on it.

For the third month in a row, our Low Mileage Leader has less than 500 miles on it! In fact, the March Low Mileage Leader, a red 2009 SYM Citycom 300i scooter, has just 72 miles on it!

For the past 98 years, BMW has been one of the greatest innovators in auto, moto, and engine manufacturing and technology. BMW Motorrad produced their first successful motorcycle in 1923, and they haven’t looked back since. Over time, BMW has continued to make improvements to its own characteristic engine designs with newly developed technologies. The combination of tradition and technology has made BMW Motorrad what it is today: the Bavarian engineering powerhouse.
