Hi people, let me present myself.

My name is Dariusz, 54 years old, I've been riding a motorcycle since I was 11.

Among all my actual motorcycles (6 in total) the one I use and keep the most is a 2007 MP3 250 (my daily motorcycle), which after changing the cylinder, head, etc. to Malossi, goes very, very well, but as usual I want to update myself and decided to go to a 500.

I have 2 possible options, a 2015 MP3 500ie with only 54Km on the clock (it's from a bike sale and was never bought, so it's basically brand new) and the other is a brand new 2022 MP3 500 HPE Sport Advanced 0Km with reverse and led lights and others. The HPE would cost me about $2k more, and the reverse sound as a cool extra.

If you had to choose, which would be the best purchase and why? I'm really very undecided.

Thanks in advance for any advice and opinion. Regards

Dariusz W.

7 years older & the previous generation, in 3 years the dealers will stop working on it
The fluids are aging out, the coolant being top of the list
If none of that concerns you $2k is real money for a slightly better motor & reverse

Get the HPE. Don't mess around with the old one. Besides, why buy a 7 year old bike that probably is going to have issues with gaskets due to sitting so long when you can have a more refined motor.
