    In my opinion you can't go wrong either way, heck folks are still buying the Gen 1 left overs without regrets. Normally as soon as the new models are released the current stock goes on sale and some guys who have to have the newest models start selling their already well accessorized rigs even though they are like new. Remember with each new model things are improved upon in some areas and new issues are created in others, go with your gut and wallet and be you'll be happy!

    And, welcome to the forum!

    You can always sell a Yamaha and you may not have the hottest thing out there, but the odds are basically real good for getting a solid machine. Compare purchase price versus original OTD price. Now do that same process with the Polaris, CanAm, Honda, Textron or any others. Not to mention the can of worms or really ragged out units you will typically find on the market. It depends also on your mechanical ability and how much you know or can do to the machine. A Yamaha purchase is not a bad bridge till you get something else that really tickles your fancy. And see there is already someone willing to give away all their mods to upgrade.

    i agree Jim, the Yamaha brand has by far the best built machine. they are built way better than any other MFG their frames and suspension are top notch.

    I would say be realistic about what you really want in a SxS. For me, given the trails I ride and the way I ride, the X2 R-Spec was perfect. I don't have a need or desire to go 60+ mph in a SxS and the trails I ride are typically tight, windy, with some rocky sections and lots of elevation changes. Would a new, faster version of the X2 do anything for me? Nope. The advice about waiting for a model change year to pick up last year's model is valid, you can save some scratch if you are on the ball and snap one of the previous models up. For me, adding accessories that enhance the riding experience is a better spend but your mileage may vary.

    New model announcement will be made Sept. 4th; that's not too far away. I would wait until then.

    They are changing I assume to be more competitive with the new 2020 Honda Talon 4 seater. Which BTW looks really nice.

    Thanks for the replies guys, my mind was totally made up to buy a 19 X2 SE and at my age this will probably be my last toy for quite some time. When I made up my mind the only thing that held me back a little bit was the top speed of the X2 which is kind of silly 'cause I'm not looking to go fast but I do appreciate a beefier motor. I'm not partial to any brand but I've been on Yamahas since the late 70s and the more I followed this site I came to the conclusion that I would appreciate what sounds to be a very nice quiet and smooth ride from the X2 SE.
    So, one of 2 things will happen in the very near future. I'll end up getting an even better deal on a leftover 19 or I'll fall in love with whatever they come out with which honestly I don't think will happen till 2021
