I'm probably not going to pull the trigger right now, but the answers I get will impact my decision, whether now, or later.
I've got my eye on a 2010 GTS 300 Super in super fast red, with a top case and rear crash bars. It has under 2K on the odometer, and the asking price is $3,500. Located about 10 miles from home. Add $210 in sales tax plus whatever a licence plate will cost (probably under $100).
On the other hand, there's a dealer about 2.5 hours away has a sale on new 2019 models for $5,500-5,800, depending on the model. A white GTS 300 Super is $5,799...out the door for a few dollars under $7,000. There are a few other colors available. It's the closest dealer with any GTS 300s in stock. I have a truck, so transport is not an issue.
I can't finance the 2010, so my savings would be impacted. The 2019 can be easily financed and paid off slowly @ 4.25%.
Which one would you buy?
