Actually theres plenty of low mileage ST11s and 13s to be had in excellent condition used.

Even Concourses and FJRs too!

I voted with my wallet too. As I ponder the next ST in my garage I continually come back to the fact my ST1300 continues to fit me to a T, I know it inside and out, I've long since paid for it and farkled it to my wants. With 147,xxx miles on the clock it still goes good, stops good, handles good enough, and no one waits on me for long at the end of a twisty road. On the other hand, the slot filled by the second bike is constantly under assault by all of the interesting bikes that I think about. I can wait on the ST replacement and if nothing comes along to move me off center I'll find a low mileage ST that someone polished a lot and rode a little. In the meantime I sold the former second bike, an NC700X, and filled that slot with a new Triumph Tiger 800.

Deposits and orders are not nearly as happy as the phone call telling It's here.

Estimated Delivery Date?
