The pros are that you might be able to negotiate a great deal off season. I have seen some amazing deals after Christmas. The con of purchasing that time of year is that you might not be able to ride your new scooter right away.

Pro
Save $$$$$. Low demand = deals to be had!

Con
You don't get to ride it as much.
Have to think about winter storage options sooner.

When I purchased my GTS it was in Dec of 2006. I put money down with the understanding that I wouldn't pick the bike up until Late March. Since I didnt take delivery until the end of march that's when my warranty started. It worked out well And I got a great deal

Now that's a good deal, the other con I was thinking about was the clock starts on your warranty at a time when you are not riding.
