Will the stop sale affect the price of the 2019s?

I'm wondering if the sop sale will affect the prices of the "new" 2019s once they are able to be sold. From what I understand, dealers can't release the bikes. When the 2020s show up, can we expect some deep discounting of the 19s in stock?

I don't know about other countries but I already got a discount that was part of the 2019 Promo that saved me $3,000.00 Australian then my dealer gave me a further discount due to the number of bikes I have bought from them and then asked BMW to help them with the price of the Optional reverse so I have every option on my bike. That saved me half the cost of the reverse retail cost. I cant see the bikes being released now till around late January if we are lucky and t for that matter if the 2020 model is released before that I would also be surprised. On top of all that the dealership loaned me a 2012 GTL with 47,00 klms. on it and did the 50,000 klm. service before I picked it up.I am not complaining but would love to have my new bike by January 2020 at the latest.

I would think there is going to be an uptick in supply based upon the stop sale and likely a very good chance of some discount program. I took possession of my bike right at the stop sale date and, while I had been looking at the K1600s for a couple months, the test drive moved me to the point of the decision and the 0% financing at the time sealed the deal. There are quite a few forum members here who haven't been able to pick up their bikes and are patiently (anxiously?) biding their time until the stop sale is lifted. There are going to be many instances where potential buyers who would have been on the fence and may/may not have bought one on a visit to the dealership, but decided against a purchase due to the stop sale and may have ended up with another bike, either a used K1600 or another model or even brand of motorcycle--I don't think BMW has slowed production due to the recall (I could be wrong), but I think, in the end, there will be a mini-glut of K1600s in the US dealerships. They don't want to have 2019 models around when the 2020s are arriving in the showrooms. They certainly don't want them around when the 2021 models start to show up. The BMW website is currently showing discounts of up to $2500 for various 2019 models...yet there is not one on the 2019 K1600s: they really can't offer an incentive whent they cannot deliver the bike. I expect them to be running something on the 2019 K1600 models as soon as the stop sale is lifted. If a dealership had a bunch of them inbound or potential buyers back out that increases their inventory, there may be additional dealership incentives in addition the national incentives...I would check several of the larger dealerships at that time.

It is possible they could not release a 2020 if they have enough 2019's floating around. They might just hold them back until the 2019's are sold off and go straight to 2021.

I had thought about that earlier, but the 2020 K1600 models have been on the website since October. Haven't heard of any being in the showrooms, but I'm guessing (just me) that the production numbers scheduled a year ago are continuing and that they are probably just parking the bikes that need a transmission fix before they ship them out...I think there will be a glut, albeit a small one, at some point down the road.

I have a 2019 stuck in the "stop sale" and the salesman told me that they're not allowed to sell any 2020 K16 bikes right now until the sales freeze is off. I have seen 2020 K16s advertised which I think means that the dealers can order them but not deliver. Once the freeze is off I wouldn't be surprised to see some small to medium incentive on the 2019 prices to make room for the 2020s.

I tend to agree to the extent of holding off on the 2020 models but they can really only afford to hold off for so long so moving the 2019 stock would be the priority and clearing them to sell the 2020`s before the time to release the 2021 models are due. If they had too much old stock they may ever hold off selling any 2021 models and go to the 2022 production. It would depend on the production models already made and in stock. I don't care as long as I get mine asap it has been a log 2.5 mths wait so far and with no chance of any delivery insight for January unless they are doing the fix without saying anything here in Australia then release and rush them to the dealerships early in the new year. but as I have said before I one of the lucky ones having a loan bike to ride. there would be lots of guys won't have that option.

The Charlotte dealer claims to have a 2020 planet blue GTL on the floor, so I assume they are out there.

I suppose it may be too late to skip the 2020's, but don't be surprised if they're not plentiful on the showroom floors until the 2019's are gone.

BMW needs an inventory search like some car companies. Shows you what is in stock at every dealership.
