Question Should I buy a New 2013 Hyperstrada

Hello

I test drove a hyperstrada 2 weeks ago and loved it! The dealer has a great deal on a new 2013 hyperstrada with a 2 year warranty.

The question is...should I buy the 2013 model or the 2015 model?. The 2013 model is 3000$ cheaper.

What are the major differences between the years? Are the 2013 reliable being the 1st year for this model?

Any input would be appreciated. I loved the way this bike handled and I feel like it would be the perfect bike for my needs.

thanks

I believe all '15 models are the "low version", while a '13 is likely the slightly taller version. Do you know which version the '13 is? Other than that, there are practically no differences that I am aware of. Is the '15 worth the extra cost to you?

Buy the '13 if money is an issue and you don't mind the height, buy the '15 if money ain't no thang in the big T dot.. haha Essentially their the same bikes.

I miss TO.. except for the 401.

Edit.. Just think of all the farkles you can get for the 3,000 you saved buying the 13...

A lot of us have experienced some "first year" issues, such as the "Christmas Tree Dashboard of Death". It may never affect you, but do you really want a potential $6000 repair bill hanging over your head when your warranty expires?

Go for the newer one.

Buy it.

I purchased a New '13 this spring and have not regretted it. ~2500 trouble free miles. Most of us have never had a problem with ours. And, you have the warranty for 2 years.

Is it white? Red is the only color available this year.

Thanks everyone for the feedback I have another bike I still want to test ride but this is my favourite so far!

I found that I was able to flat foot both of my feet on the demo bike, it was a 2015 model. Being 5'8" would the taller 2013 model be OK?

It was the red one. I would have preferred the white.

I'm 5' 8" and have a standard '13. Height is fine for me, but I can't flat foot both feet. I'm very happy with mine. Zero issues after 3000 some miles.

You should try the '13 and see how it fits you. Can't go wrong with either bike, really....
