Depending on your country/state laws, a new bike has to have a minimum number of km/miles.
If it is a BMW Authorised dealer, they shouldnt be trying to pass off an old bike for a new one.
They could buy a new instrument cluster and install it, but dude, its a BMW dealer. A used bike place might do that but why bother.
If its clean and smells like a new bike, chances are its a new bike. New bikes have a distinctive smell.

Unless they fit new tyres you'll be able to tell if any real mileage has been covered.

Look at the kms that the bike has done, a new bike would have limited kms <80km.

They would also tell you if it's a demo bike or if it's new.

I closed the poll as it doesn't make sense with the OR operator in it

He wants to know if the test ride bike (demo) is the bike they are selling him OR is he getting a new one.

Look at the last 4 numbers on the VIN on the test bike and compare that to the new bike. The new bike would be different.

Also if yoy are ordering a different color, no worries. A dealer is generally only going to have 1 demo bike.

2018 BMW G310GS White
2017 Hyosung GD250R Black/Gray
2016 KTM RC390
2014 Kawasaki Ninja 300 SE (sold)
2008 Hyosung GT250R (crashed)
199x Kawasaki Ninja 250 (engine failure)

Just ask them if you are getting a new bike or a demo bike!
