Save your money and buy a used bike. The money you save will pay for a nice bike trip wirh your buddies and a nice piece of jewrly for the wife or girlfriend. A win win.
It worked for me. ☺

Re: 2018 R1200RT

Depending on how many 2017's are still in the pipeline or showroom floors could slightly delay the 2018 showing up. I'm interested in a 2018 XR that has the factory lowering kit but was told by a sales person the 2018 XR won't start showing up until most of the 2017's are sold. Not sure how accurate the sales person statement will be.

They will be manufacturing the 2018 model year bikes now that the August factory break is over. Dealers everywhere will be keen to get any 2017 models shifted. There will be discounts to be had. If you want a discount on a 2018 model year bike wait until after the initial allocation has been sold. Demand will then slacken off a bit/a lot and that will have a direct knock on effect on the level of discount you can negotiate.

Thanks all. I am probably looking at 10 weeks minimum from what I can gather.

Gives you plenty of time to save a few extra dollars and/or change your mind ten more times.

The first one that I have seen is now on the showroom floor in The Woodlands, TX. Looks really good too!

Re: 2018 R1200RT

Wow, was it a 1250cc model? That might show up in the GS bikes first. Probably 2019.

I saw a 2018 at Hermy's last week, the RT looks good in that color.

Re: 2018 R1200RT

I am also in the market for one but will wait for the ipad display and 1250 engine.

Here is some fun in the mean time.
