    VFR owner wannabe, from Bucharest, Romania

    Good afternoon gents,

    I'm Lucian, from Bucharest, Romania.
    I currently own a 2017 NC750X and one 2019 Rebel/CMX500. However... 2 months ago, I started to consider a replacement for the NC750X.
    VFR800x is on my top of the list, and luckly I found one not so far from my current city, in mint condition.
    It's a red 2018, first registration in 2019, with only 4k km, with plenty of OEM addons. Only panniers and top box are missing.
    Unfortunately it's not blue  :008: as my NC... As you probably already know... blue is the fastest color...  :156: :152:

    I almost decided to go for it... despite the fact that cost for owning a VFR800X looks to be much higher compared with owning an NC...
    Any advice on what should I check/consider before buying?  :020:

    Regards,
    Lucian.

     :400: Welcome to the forum, Lucian.
    A Crossrunner with only 4K on the clock should be in mint condition. Nevertheless you should do the usual checks on wheel and steering head bearings as well as unusual tyre wear which would indicate out of alignment wheels. Listen for any rattling noises from the engine, make sure gear selection is easy, and there are no brake or clutch fluid leaks. Also check the Honda service book.
    I doubt very much if you will find anything wrong with the bike that wouldn't show up in a thorough test ride.
