Personally I'd wait six months after the '07 is realeased before even considering buying it. Wait until the mags and TTers get their hands on them and see what they say. It'll also take awhile for the aftermarket to get parts out for them. And you'll be able to work out a better deal. The last thing you should worry about is the resale value or if the steel frame models will be less desirable in three years. My bikes are clapped out when I sell them and I figure whatever I get for 'em will go towards all the bling I'll put on a new bike. There are still a bunch of desert rats that swear by the KX 500, and assuredly there will be fans of the steel framed WR's after '07.
