I agree for the most part but, I had an '80 Ducati 900SS that was pretty decent in both departments.

I lucked out, mine was a repo that wouldn't run a used car dealer bought at auction, seems the auction must've reversed the battery cables and fried the computer. It had warranty that hadn't timed out, had the computer replaced under warranty and paid $6800 for a bike with IIRC less than 2K on it. Put ~55K on it myself and it was a really nice ride.
