    What's best, 2016 w/Rider Pack or '17 bike?

    I'm a prospective Crossrunner owner and I'll buy either a pre-reg '16 bike with Rider pack, or a '17 Euro 4 spec bike. Putting the Rider pack goodies to one side, which bike should I get? What are the pros and cons? Any advice gratefully received. Cheers, John

    I am no expert but would feel that getting a fully or part loaded ( extras) bike with some depreciation already accounted for and on low miles ...probably outweighs the benefits of a brand new at premium price model ... However many may feel differently ...that is what I did ... And do not regret ...ESP as after 18 months dealers offer a pittance on px regardless of number of owners ...all this said applies to buying and not contract purchase or leasing ...of which I have no personal knowledge....of course you may be able to get a friendly dealer to add some of those extras to get his sale ?....of new...

    Thanks and agreed. Wondering if there are any major plus points on the '17 bike, apart from the adjustable screen.

    Wot he said!

    Mine was a 1 year old Cr with 190 miles on the clock with the Rider Pack. Saved me over £2k off list price for a virtually brand new bike. Who cares what the reg number says.  :028:

    You can always buy an adjustable screen with the money you save.
    98 VFR800 - 130,000 miles, 08 VFR800 - 76,000 miles, 15 VFR800X - 44,000 miles (all sold)
    14 VFR1200 - 20,000 miles
    18 VFR800X - 16,000 miles
    01 VFR800 Fi-1 - 9000 miles

    I'm not reg plate fussy, just wondered if there's a good reason to get a '17 model. By the sounds of it there isn't.

    Sweeeeet.  :419:

    Best way to get a bike, got my 1200 in similar fashion. There's always a few low mileage ex-demos or very quick trade-ins coming up in the press as long as you have time to wait.

    I'm sure you'll have a great time together.  :031:

    Thats more than I paid for a 17 model Euro 4 bike. Didn't get the Akrapovic though, which didn't bother me to be honest. Right place right time and all that.
