Showroom queens, dead stock, are every retailer's nightmare.
There are only a few (very few) old style shops that refuse to reduce prices on dated stock, and so they sit there gathering dust. Why would people spend the same money to get last years graphics, and perhaps miss out on a few tweaks that may have been incorporated into this year's version?
The 2017 was a huge upgrade model year and the 2018 has seen very little changes - making old stock a windfall for dollar conscious purchasers.
