Should I wait for the 2017 Ninja 300?

So in the summer I will be getting a new Motorcycle and I had my mind only on the 2015 Ninja 300 ABS because I like the green fairings and they get great reviews, but I was wondering should I get one in the summer (2015 Ninja 300 ABS) or should I wait for the new 2017 Ninja 300.

Depends on what's most important to you. The previous greens look good and there's deals to be had on used bikes, you'll have to pay top dollar for the new model when it comes out. Used leaves money for gear and bike upgrades. And like he said, you miss out on this summer.

I have the money for both, money isn't really the issue and I live Cali so we kind of have summer all year but I was just wondering which one should be better waiting for it or getting it in the summer

That "rendering" isn't what the 2017 ninja will look like. It will look exactly like the current Ninja, with a couple new colors and graphics, and that is all.

Get a 13 or 14 used and call it good.

OK thanks, probably going to get a leftover 2015 Ninja 300 or the 2014 SE abs model.

In another thread someone asked when the best time was to buy their first bike. The best response I saw was, "Right now, you can be more picky after that."

Q. Why do I ride?
A. Because I've never seen anyone jogging and smiling.
