So maybe you just tell the dealer at MSRP, you'll just wait for the new one to come out. See what he says to that.
I would also agree with Lee, look for an '06 or '07. It's the same bike as the '09, but with the communication system standard equipment. There are deals to be had.
I bought my '07 new in Feb, '07 (the dealer had three in the showroom, I paid cash and got $1500 off of MSRP). However, I would be very hesitant to buy the last year of a model that will be substantially re-engineered the following year. Talk about depreciation.
