If true, this will kill the already small 'Berg dealer network, and likely end 'Bergs in the US once and for all.
Having waited years for 'Berg to provide us with a factory, road-legal dirt bike, to take this away from us is sad, and I hope not the case.

Unfortunately TW is correct. I asked my local dealer today and he verified that no 4T's in the USA for 2012. I'm amazed too.

I thought that news was talked about over 4 months ago, for the reason Crankshaft gave.

Or am I psychic ?

I must have missed it. Anyway, Crank is right, that's what my dealer verified later. Still stock in the warehouses they want to get rid of first and no real changes in 4T for 2012.

MrBracket, the manufacturer, posted that back a few pages. Interesting.

Sounds good to me. I have a very rare, 4 stroke 570...will part with it for $15k.

What, too early to see them appreciate in value? Was just checking....

Its still a contender, and I expect it to have long-term engine durability, but until more time has passed and long distance rides reported, we just can't know yet.

Thanks for the confirmation and rationale Crank.

So, what does everyone think, will this raise '11 prices or lower them?

Oh, but that 2012 yellow frame is soooooooooooo nice!

So what, we skip a year model or will we alwys be 1 year behind the Euros?

Raise I hope since I've got 2.

How could it possibly raise their price if the dealers have so many in stock unsold?

Honda did the same here in Oz and ended up selling at reduced prices and with a lot of bling bits thrown in to get them sold, it dropped second hand prices of CRFs a fair bit.

The 950 se went up in value because the bike went out of production.

Powder coating is cheap and my 2010 needs to be framed anyways, to clean all the dirt and crap Usually the good clean happens over the winter but I ride all year round, so it's tough

@KTM959SE Price goes up if demand goes up and if the warehouse has plenty of bikes, I don't see the prices going anywhere honestly. Maybe on the 390 since it's a better all around bike. I had a 570 and, I think the 390 is more fun. I've ridden mine on the MX track, Harescramble, DS rides, on the Ice, snow trail riding, around town to the store and even single track banging and it eats it all up.

My prediction anyway
