Would like to get some opinions on this. Full disclosure, I've been trying to rationalize buying a new beta via financing. Quick background before I begin: I've been riding a 2003 Honda crf 230f for around a decade now, and I'm 100% ready for an upgrade. I take this hobby quite serious, as it's a form of escape for me, and getting something new at some point is very important to me. After thorough research regarding my riding style and fitness levels etc, I think the 2018 xtrainer is my winner. This is why I call upon you beta riders out there for your words of wisdom. And here's where I have to decide how I go about buying this thing. I'm in the Midwestern US, and there's seldom beta dealers around my area, definitely a 2hr+ drive to each one. Some offer financing, some do not, as they have to buy these bikes out of pocket once they order them (mom and pop type of shops). As things stand at the moment, I only have the option to finance, I don't have enough saved to just buy cash. That could take... a LOT longer than I'd like, let's just say. I would really like to get something by summer at the latest. So, I have time to think this over and gather a little more cash. And FYI, I'm not interested in buying used from private sellers. I have little trust with that type of transaction. I'm dead set on buying brand new, but it's something I plan to keep for a long time. I may have enough to put (just guessing) about half down (xtrainer $7499 msrp, not sure what the OTD price would be. Guessing over 8k..) and finance the rest. I have very good credit, make payments on time, yada yada. I wouldn't have problems getting approved or making payments at all. I just want to do it without getting dicked by interest rates or anything like that if possible. If that's the case, I'd consider waiting, perhaps. So, what do you beta guys recommend? What have your experiences been with beta dealers? I welcome all opinions!
