By the time my dealer get's my first round SL ,I might be able to save a few grand on a used one .
I dont see any problem with waiting, though I dont know how much you will save.To be honest, I'd be lying if I wasn't thinking about this.
I'm in Chicago and certainly don't want to take delivery of a vehicle that will sit in my garage for at least 4 months. My plan is to pull the trigger in April. At that time, there may be a small number of SS vehicles that might be for sale.
Could reasonably happen. It's a toy. Toys go when things go bad. Or maybe people buy it and get bored. Or maybe people buy it and it doesn't stick. It happens.
And no, it's not a high end vehicle that will appreciate in value. I can see them selling for $5K less used in a few months...
Take their $1000 and drive up to Missouri and buy one the same day and take it home.In a few months, yeah. But right now for Christmas.... it could happen. If it hasn't already. I have already been offered $1,000 for my number one spot in line. I live in Louisiana so I can ride year-round. So I'm not getting at the back of the line. It was 77 degrees yesterday.
A base model for 5 grand in only three years?!! Are you sure @BatWing? In december of 2017 would you please let me know first if you're selling yours? Can I hold you to that depreciation?There will be a very active secondary market for these. Just like all my cars. Those who CAN wait, should. In 6 months, this vehicle will sell for a $3-4K savings. $5K at a yr. $7.5K at 2yrs. $15K off at 3yrs. There is no rocket science here.
I just want mine in the first 1-2 months of deliveries so I can enjoy the newness etc.
I have a LIST of cars that I believe the secondary market is for me. The slingshot? Naaaa. I rather buy brand new and share it with someone if I get bored
The usual depreciation on a US Vehicle is 50% at three years. Half of $20K would be $10K. So conservatively its worth $10K in 3 years. However, I said it may be as bad as $5K based upon the market depreciation of trikes like the t-rex. I don't think I am that for off. It will be worth between $5 and $10K in 3years. Yes, you can hold me to those numbers. . .
Most bikes only drop so far then level off. Case in point..... 2006 Honda VTX 1800 will still cost u 5000.00. They have been 5000.00 for the last 6 years. So they will still be worth 10k for a while after they take the initial hit.The usual depreciation on a US Vehicle is 50% at three years. Half of $20K would be $10K.

Thats pretty cool, Need a permit or cert ?there is a lot of unknowns. other models by other companies? i am sure there are some others coming down the pipe line as we speak. if i didn't have 3 aircraft to fly, a ss would be cool. kind of bring back the motor cycle days plus!!!
