Question 2012 xc

Im ready to pull the trigger on a XC. Loaded and cocked, just dont know where to aim. Dealer says the 2012's are arriving the begining of next month but I have a very itchy trigger finger. Will the 2012's be worth the wait or should I shoot whats in my sites right now at a hell of a deal? Anybody know what the 2012's will offer?

Wait. You'll either get a better deal on a leftover 2011 either you'll decide to go with the brand new 2012 model if there are any improvements. You'll have more options if you wait another month or two.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Wait for the 2012's to come out. If there are no significant changes then go for a 2011.

The big questions are how long is your riding season and how long can you wait? You could most likely walk out of the dealership with the bike you want for a good deal tomorrow.

If you wait until very late Jul or early Aug (new bikes are announced at the dealers meet - most likely the last week of Jul). They will most likely prebuild some of the 12's (last year it was XC's in black) but you'll have limited color selection.

If you pick a 12 that wasn't prebuilt you'll have to order. Delivery should take 4 to 6 weeks but depending on the amount of orders and the number of dealers in the region it could take longer. It's not cost effective to ship 1 bike at a time so they use distro delivery.

Im in the south east region so the season is long. The biggest delima IS hw long I can go without a bike. I am being offered a good deal on my second color choice, (cherry being my first but we lready know the deal on that). If I could get an increadable deal on a black one im not dredfully opposed either. So other than cherry in the 2012's I would be cool.

Opinion; What would be a great deal for a 2011 XC w/trunk and IPOD in saddle bag? Maybe Im excited about nothing. $18,500 otd.

$18,500.00 otd is a great deal on a 2011 with the trunk alone!

Indeed. But I doubt the deal will get any worst in the next month or so. Good things come to those who wait... But nobody said that bad things come to those who don't wait.

What about a bird in the hand is better than two birds in the bush. Without a doubt there wont be any discounting on the 2012 price. Agree, disagree?

Haha.... you're nobody's advocate though, as the 2011 price will be even lower when there are 2012s on the same showroom floor as 2011s.

The advantage of waiting is that if the 2012 come up with some new feature that's worth the money, he can chose the 2012 model. And there's no logical way for the price on the 2011s to go up (unless we start dreaming of sci-fi scenarios).

Now we're all busy spending this fellow's money.

Which color? Black probably, which isn't bad, but not the best color to try and keep clean. My blue one sucks for that too. The white one is best for looking its best longest.

If you can swing a white '11 XC with trunk, iPod cords to the saddlebag, a flip windshield, and a kiss on the cheek for $18.5k otd then you've got a good deal going on.

That's assuming you don't have buyers remorse after seeing what the 2012 offering's are. Do you like to gamble?
