If you're concerned about resale don't buy new, buy one that's a few year old and let the other person take most of the depreciation. There is a shitload of them on craigslist and I bet if you followed them for a month most the same bikes will still be there. I could be wrong but I can't see them being big sellers as anyone upgrading is not looking at a 300, your only takers are going to be new riders many of which are going to buy an older bike.
This is my opinion of course do what makes you smile.
The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place... and I donīt care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently, if you let it. You, me or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life. But ain't about how hard you hit... It's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward... how much you can take, and keep moving forward. Thatīs how winning is done. Now, if you know what you worth, go out and get what you worth. - Rocky Balboa
