Default Mileage EC300

Hi, recently bought a ec300 2018 ISDE. This had a odometer with only 920km on it. Further investigation showed a broken speedo sensor cable.
The bike has been used intensely, I suspect.
What mileage can be expected to be regular?
Please share pictures of odometer as proof

You can never be sure a speedo reading is accurate unless you have owned it from new.
Always go off the bike condition. My 2018 has 2200km on it but looks like it has spent its time sliding down rock faces because I ride tighter rocky nasty trails.
But it is mechanically perfect.
Try not to stress on what is regular use and look at the bikes components to judge value.
I have seen worthless bikes with low ks and mint bikes with 150,000ks.

if you are not sure and it looks well used I would replace piston and fit an hour meter and move on from there (the odo may have an hour meter on it too which will give you an indication of how many hours it took to do 920km so you will know if it was easy open riding or very slow very hot climbing)

Well we bought a 2018 EC with about 90 hours 3992 km on it an it had only be ridden on the road with SM wheels. It looked new, but we still replaced the piston to be sure. First piston and still in good shape. These engines are very strong and as long you lubricate well the gasoline and gearbox and airfilters you can't go wrong. My 2009 EC 300 has the original clutch in and i am not shifting with the clutch up, and sometimes down. In 10 years time still the first bottom end in with no worries.
