There is alot of skepticism in the air right now with whats going on with the new R3's because of the whole recall. I would call the dealer and ask if its for a 2015 or a 2016 and if theyre seriously sticking you to a december date i would take the deposit back and get a different bike. Try the FZ6R! No but seriously if you really like the R3 then wait, but thats gonna kill the rest of the year.Just put a deposit on a new 2016 r3 over the phone due to work commitments. Dealer emailed me the paper work and it states a december 15 build and compliance date.. im thinking this isnt what i asked for. Is this a 2015 or 2016 bike?
Well it might actually be a 16. Plenty of vehicles are made at the end of the year prior. Look at the style or send a picture, it is most likely a 16' but then again i havent seen it, the styling differences between 15 and 16 models is noticeable. If its a 2015 then it does affect the price, maybe a 100-500 max. In the end you are the buyer, tell them what you want and dont buy a motorcycle if its not exactly how you want (within reason).This bike was built and complianced last december.
I guess my issue is you can call it a 16 but when i go to sell it the next buyer will call it a 2015. So i guess im asking is can i say no i want one built / complianced in 2016
Dealers are addressing the recall issues before selling, at least thats a positive. Im thinking because i screwed the price down they are trying to offload an older bike.
