Waiting for the FE's. Still hopping for an R model!  If not I think I'm trying the Honda I'm tired of this re-engineering because of California!

Isn't the Honda just as Californicated (and heavier)?

Yeah...But HUSQVARNA has the ability to build the R model (again) but if they chose to give us the middle finger!  Im taking my money else where!  I'm holding out till the announcement!

 

Looking online and at my local shop I think allot of people are in agreement with me!  They're allot of FE's sitting. Husqvarna is offering 2k back on the 250's with 0% financing!  If you made a product the other 99% of America wants you wouldn't have to make offers like those mentioned above. We just want a tag not blinkers and road tires!

Beautiful bikes no matter how you look at it!  Unfortunately the price tags will match, but love the look especially with the gray side panel extension piece.  Hopefully the FE models follow suite.

MY20 released in April of the preceding year? At what points does the year of the machine fail to make sense. Imagine this. You buy a used bike MY20 in April of 20 but it actually already a year old. Talk about a way to sap the life from the used market!

Has not hurt resale value one bit so far.  Look at Suzuki for comparison who is late to release models.  Resale is garbage.  My 2016 KTM 350 XC-F with 351 hours sold in a day for $5,200.

Yeah, my local shop quoted me 7k out the door!  He had one left!  Still not a deal considering all that needs to be done to it!  Needless to say I passed!  I'm betting the 250 willn't be in the 2020 FE lineup because there not offering the 2k off and 0% on the bigger bikes!  Fire sale!
