When to buy a 2019 Strom??

First of all, I am excited to be a part STROMTROOPER.COM! A quick google search led me to this forum and I haven't been able to stop reading all of the topics and opinions. I am going to have to research Greywolf, as he sounds like he was an interesting and knowledgable staple of these boards.

Anyway, I have been researching and I am about to make my second motorcycle purchase: a V-Strom. Looks like I will be buying a new 650XT Adventure, unless I find an amazing deal on a 1000XT Adventure in the next couple of days.

My question is this: Is NOW the right time to buy? I am not in any great hurry. Usually when the new model arrives, last year's model's come down in price. The 650 is in the neighborhood of $9500 OTD, but I would hate to ride it off the lot, only to see the price drop because the 2020s have hit the showroom.

Any advice is greatly appreciated, and I am happy to be a part of this group.

The 650 hasn't changed since 2017 so you can probably pick up a new 18 model for a reduced price.

Guy I nearly sold my '14 Wee to bought a new (2018 maybe) for well under 9k. Massachusetts here so it might not be apples to apples.

So you're saying that the best time to buy a 2019 is in 2021? LOL. Yeah, probably. I actually took your advice and started shopping 2017 and 2018 models. Look like some good options out there.

No idea your location but I bought a 19' 650XT for a under $8,800 OTD about 3 months ago. No extra's on it at that price.

I'd say about 2021 or 2022 for a 2019 hope that helps. Seriously though there are a lot of "new old stock" around and you could be OTD for a few grand less. That's farkle money
