Need help deciding between two bikes

To get right to the point, I'm will soon have a new bike, and these are my two choices, but I'm having a hard time deciding between a trek emonda sl6 or a BH Ultralight RC. The emonda is used (but in good shape) and comes with a Sram force 22 build (except for ultegra brakes) for about $1500. The BH would be new, about $500 more, but would have durace ace shifters and derailleurs (11 speed), ultegra brakes and cassette, and a rotor crank.
Anyone with any experience with either of these bikes would be welcome to weigh in, or anyone with and informed opinion. I'm torn here. Thoughts?

Ride both and see which one appeals to you. The BH being new would have a warranty and at $2k is 55% off of MSRP, a tough deal to beat.

Two years ago I bought an Orbea road bike online through Competitive Cyclist, the only Orbea Dealer near me sells Tri-Orbeas. As far as the warranty the only thing(s) I was concerned about was the frame and fork and CC assured me they would support me if I ever needed to use the warranty.

I bought mine at the end of the model year for 50% off of MSRP, I couldn't pass it up.
