That seems a little steep to me. For about $1000-$1500 more I could have a Concours 14 or FJR 1300, or for about 2.5 grand less, a Yamaha Tracer 900 GT.
More acceptable if that's the ADV model that includes the saddlebags and heated grips.

I'm with you, for that MSRP it had better include heated grips. That's about $1k more than the 2019 DL1000 XT Adventure, which does include heated grips.

I paid full price for my '14 1000 in 2014 and have zero regrets. My 1000 has been 45000 miles of fantastic. Timing is everything, and I guess my timing isn't so lucky.

When I was researching these sport adventure bikes, the price of the DL1000 was one of the key attractions. It doesn't matter which bike or model you buy, everyone does some particularization to make the bike theirs. HD riders routinely spend significant coin to change their ride before it leaves the shop.

My 2012 DL1000 was pretty much outfitted, but I have done some mechanical work (new clutch basket, engine and chassis maintenance) to baseline the bike. An STS signal system, Holeshot Tuner, and some gauges but these are for me. The suspension is being upgraded for myself as well. Once the maintenance/upgrades are done to my 2012, will be looking at a cruise control system in a year or two.

Should get quite a few more Kms out of this one before another is needed, only 65K Kms on my 2012. If you're not into doing your own work, a new(er) bike is always the best way to go, and hopefully with warranty. If you're into doing your own work, an older model that is less complicated can be the ticket. The more sophisticated the bike, or any vehicle, the more reliant you are on the dealers.

My '85 Goldwing Limited Edition FI model is quite complicated and because of age parts are a challenge to source. The 1500 has more relays and electrics than I want to look at, and hopefully it behaves such that I do the maintenance required and don't have to get into the various parts and pieces to troubleshoot. Can't fathom a new Goldwing and the complexities it comes with.

Think the new 1050 needs a couple of years to get the kinks worked out and some real world long distance riding reviews before jumping in. As I mentioned in a previous post, maybe a 1050 for my 70th b'day some 5 years down the road will be in order.

I agree with Big Boy, not at this time.

You could always wait a year and ride the 14, then you could get $2,000 off. Although your current bike will probably drop 1-2k in value during the year anyways, so not as much of a savings

I paid full MSRP for my 18 as well, I bought it in September of 2017. Completely forgot about it until I read your post

I paid full price for my 18 model simply because I want limited surprise for the future.
The second hands available were rental bikes from 17 between 3000 and 6000 km with 2000 euro discount compared to the new bike. However take care of the bike the first 1000/2000 km is imperative. And with the rental you never know how the bike has been treated.

If it comes to that, take the Mustang!
