    Default 2013 Spyders When will info be public?

    I am finially ready to buy my first Spyder RT limited . I am not sure if I should wait for the 2013 model , if I knew now that no changes were made I'd pull the trigger now. Suspense sucks... Does anyone know when they will make info public?

    If Lamont can edit his post and bring the date back to 9/23, I will change mine too.

    Default New models always have changes

    There is a constant state of change some of which is not advertised; never is. BRP knows what systems are less than perfect and they keep tweaking them to make them better.

    Ahhh.... We thought that you might have been trying to sneak some late-breaking news to us about a delay in the release date...

    Just my 2 cents but I would wait the 3 1/2 weeks to find out. If you buy a '12 it'll be a model year old in a couple of weeks, which hurts it resale value later. Unless a dealer is blowing it out to make room for the '13 I'd wait, again just my 2 cents...

    I bought my 2010 in January 2011, and got a great deal this way. Waiting has it's advantage sometimes.

    You wll get your best deal in Late Oct - Nov if you can wait you will probably save $1,000-$2,000 form the current prices?
    Right Now I can get a Basic 2012 RT SM5 for $18,900 and was told He would sell it for 18. If I want to Take a 70 Mile ride the RT SM5 could be had for $17,000 Brand New! Local RT-S Brand new $23,600 and the prices will fall more by FALL!

    Regardsless of the New models go to cycletrader.com and Put in your search and zip code and "Have At It!"

    With the way the machines are apparently selling, I would venture to say that BRP won't make much change in the basic design and features until the present model runs its course. I think they can keep growing their market with cosmetic stuff like colors, options, etc.

    It would seem to me that there isn't a huge market above thirty grand, so that would seem to limit 1,500 or 1,800 cc's and a huskier tourer. There is a market there, just not a big enough one IMO.

    There may be a market down in the ten to twelve grand area for them. Maybe in the 700-750 cc range with fewer bells and whistles. If I was their marketing guru that is probably where I would be looking.
