      Totally depends on how it's been maintained. A well maintain motor with 100k could be in better condition than a neglected engine with 50k. Loads of different factors etc but on my itouch and typing is a chore lol

              I seen a 145k mile VXR on AT when I was looking to buy one. It was up for 8k from a dealer and it sold.

              There's currently a few on AT with 85k+ miles.
