IMHO, buy what you are happy with.
If you want a tri colour wait, and while you are waiting save.
If you are in the northern hemisphere Winter is coming and I'm sure it isn't any different to Oz. Sales slow down, the end of the calendar/manufactured year is nearing so dealers offer discounts and 'free' extras to sweeten the deal and shift stock.
Or maybe you will be lucky and find a 12 month old tri colour like I did. The one previous owner had covered a mighty 236km, yes 236km in a year and had the dealer fit a heap of extras and upgrades from new. By my calculations, well over $2,500 worth. I was even given the factory parts such as exhaust, screen, seat, grips that were swapped out.
I bought it for $5,000 under the ticket price of a new DCT simply because it was 'used'. And at the end of the day, any bike is only new until the engine is started and it is ridden away for the first time. Something to think about.
