So OU812,, you think I should get the 2017,, I have been offered a new 2017 for £10,799. inc tax

I thought there may have been some truth in it because the uk is offering 0% deposit and 0% finance, so I assumed they were trying to get rid of the older models before a new release.

I just posted something on this same topic yesterday ;-)

"Le tableau de bord pourrait être remplacé par un élément plus complet et lisible, peut être à l’image de celui qui équipe le X-ADV par exemple ; les jantes pourraient être échangées pour accepter le montage tubeless, l’éclairage pourrait évoluer aussi, des petits changements pour surtout rester au top ; Reste à espérer qu’ils n’impacteront pas le prix, sans quoi il faudra se ruer vers les modèles 2017. La confirmation de ces évolutions sera faite au prochain salon Eicma de Milan en novembre prochain !"


"The dashboard could be replaced by a more complete and readable element, may be in the image of the one that equips the X-ADV for example; the rims could be exchanged to accept tubeless mounting, lighting could evolve too, small changes to especially stay on top; It remains to be hoped that they will not affect the price, otherwise we will have to rush towards the 2017 models. Confirmation of these developments will be made at the next Eicma show in Milan next November!"

Yea,
As I was reading the first post poor grammar first came to mind. Then the rest fell apart.

That's a tough question to answer.

I understand the logic that the older models are being discounted to make way for newer upgraded models when I bought my 2016 I received a Honda promotion of $250 off because it was November and Honda wanted to sell the 2016's to make room for the 2017's even thought at the time the Africa Twins were still not easy to get and hindsight being 20/20 the only significant change to the 2017's were the colours. If you like the bike and are happy with the deal buy it and don't look back I have no regrets buying a 2016 instead of waiting for a 2017, if the tricolour white came with black wheels I might have had a very slight twinge of regret but the gold wheels spoil it for me.

Good luck and let us know what you decide.
