2010 was a completely different animal the economy was in the toilet and no motorcycles were selling Suzuki didnt bring anything new in except an ATV and a dirtbike.You're right about the muffler, looks like the fine print says 17 and 18 models only.
I don't know how this could be a good decision for the dealers - it keeps the price high, but they can't sell what they don't have. So Suzuki, and the dealer is going to lose a sale. That's the bike, all the parts/accessories/oil/maintenance/service, etc. that the dealer could have otherwise cashed in on. Suzuki must be poor with making sales predictions, I remember when they skipped the '10 model year also.
I'm not too crazy about buying a "new" bike that is a year or two old. It would have to be a pretty good deal, what kind of discount should I expect? Thanks!
this is because there is too many world wide and dealers and Suzuki have plenty of 2018s in the warehouse. we can still order them from our local distribution center. like others ours can be had at cost. with the rebates and such you would be spending up to 3,500 less then a 2019. (30% off)
i personally think they should have brought out a few of the 2019 with limited production they would have held MSRP. it would give people true incentive to purchase the 2018 model.
but 3500 and a free muffler is a pretty strong incentive.
