I've been thinking about buying a new bike for awhile now and a couple dealers in the area have leftovers for a decent price. A 2012 for $6700 and a 2013 for $6900.
I have had an '06 WR450 and sold that to my son to get my '07 I have now. I really like the bike, but it is getting to where it needs more and more attention. I also like the idea of FI. My '07 is setup just how I like now. Handguards, radiator guards, skidplate, Devol suspension, trials tire on the rear and probably some things I am forgetting at the moment.
From the guys that have ridden both, what's your take on the new bike versus the old and are the changes great enough to warrant a new bike? I mostly ride woods with an occasional trip east of the mountains to the desert and open riding. I would also plate this new bike for getting to local trails around the house.
I have heard of guys getting deals on these for around $6500 OTD. Can anyone back this up?
So, bottom line, should I pull the trigger? And where can I get the best deal?
