Best time to buy a bike???

Recommended Posts

Whats the best time of year to purchase a new bike? I live in Northern Ky so I'm gonna assume that riddin really slacks off in the winter (Nov.thru Feb) so maybe sales aren't that great throughout those months.

Well, I bought a brand new, following year model, out-of-state bike on ebay in early December '04. It was an '05 model, now 20 months later, I can possibly find the same left over model for about $200 less from the same place, but with another $250 for shipping. My ebay purchase had free shipping, so even today it still stands as a better deal.

I'm thinking that your assumption is correct.

The next few months are the best time to buy a new bike. The 06s are priced great so the dealers can make room for the 07 which are starting to show up.

If you live in a hot area, used bike sales are best when it starts getting really hot. In CA, best time to buy a Red-sticker bike is right after red-sticker riding season closes. If that makes no sense to you, don't ask, count yourself lucky.
