2015 or 2016 GSA?

Getting ready to get back in the saddle after a long sabbatical/recovery from knee surgery. All is well! Just wondering if anyone knows when the mother ship stops production of the 2015 ADV and begins production of the 16's.

This late in the year I was thinking about waiting on placing my order for a 16 as I am in no hurry....however I will be taking a GSW for a test ride this weekend which could possibly accelerate my decision no pun intended..

Thoughts appreciated...

2015 or 2016 GSA?

Generally I think it comes down to how long your willing to wait. It also is likely there will be a slight price rise for 2016's. I think I heard that production stops around August. So you would be waiting until mid October for a 2016 in the pipeline. Also, towards the very end of the year, at least in Canada, BMW starts to sweeten the deals with better finance rates, or some small incentives on landed inventory, but I doubt there will be any/many GS Adv's creating that problem. I think regular GS' s though may have been over produced and that's why we're now seeing the accessory credit. Hope that helps.. I had the same decision and took the 2015 delay over the 2016 reset+delay.

I was the first to order a '15 GSA from my dealer. I think it was some time in July when the order bank opened and I received it on 9-30-14.

I can't think of anything wrong on the '15 that will be changed for '16. Probably just new colors and I'm guessing a $250 price increase.

BMW is offering $2000 off on the 2015 GSs. See your dealer! I just bought one, too good a deal to pass up. (That would probably be Eurosport-Asheville for you, thats who I bought from too.)

Every day you wait is one less day to ride.

Until the end of May (?...maybe June)...

The GS Adventure has a promotional $500 off plus an aluminum top case ($700 value) thrown in for free...

BMW also has discounts for military and first responders. FYI.

You have to ask and produce a badge or some other form of ID.

They do, unfortunately it is not in addition to the other promotional offer. By reading the fine print it looks like it would be, but it's not. The LE/ Mil discount is $400 and the "added incentive" of the current deal is $500, the promotion is for the free top case. So as the dealer explained it to me, I could pick either the $400 LE discount OR the $500 promo plus top case, but not both.

I am wondering if they finally introduce MSC on the 2016 GS.

That's a dealer thing and not BMW. Your LE discount should be taken after all other promotions have been used. I'd take my business to another dealer.
