Hi, I am new to the forum & I am thinking about purchasing a new 2018 961 Cafe but have read many differing reports regarding reliability etc. I would appreciate any feedback from owners regarding, any inherrent problems, service costs (I can do minor serving myself) parts costs and future parts supply & what to expect with the Indian takeover. I only have a couple of days to make my decision & I can purchase the bike at a much reduced price, but I am not wealthy so can't afford large maintenance issues going forward.........I need a quick education regarding the 961 so I can make a relatively informed decision about purchasing the bike, all help will be much appreciated, thanks in advance. Afterthought ---- I am allso wondering about the original pipes, is there much of a note or have most of you replaced them, if so, what with & how much ?
