So I saw an '07 up on eBay 2 weeks ago with an opening bid of 17K US. Nobody bid on it and it closed. I contacted the dealer and found out the 17K opening bid was just a teaser, but in fact they'd take 16K for it. MV is sponsoring the program to clear out the '07 models to make way for the homologation special 312s (mentioned in other theads). Still, paying 16K for a status bike with 23K on the sticker seems to devalue the brand. I suppose the low price is a combination of the MV incentive plan and lagging end of year sales. Soooo, it you're looking to jump at an upgrade, dealers are clearing them out... at least in South Florida they are.
