I'm stuck on a '19 or '20 790D

I have a '19 lined up for $9200 plus fees. They also have a 2020 that I much prefer the orange wheels and black body work, but it's $10,700 plus fees. Is a model year newer and a better color combo worth $1500? I know probably not, but I don't want to have buyers remorse while staring at the bike in the garage.

I can buy a black tank bodywork for $154 if I want the 19 to look more like the 20, but the wheels are another matter.

Id Get the cheaper one, other than colours is there any spec difference?

Zero difference. Black wheels and silver tank vs orange wheels and silver tank. One year more depreciation on the used market.

Out the door price difference is $1311.

I think the '19 is the smart decision.

I believe the specs are the same.

Personally, I prefer to ride a motorcycle, not cleaning the wheels frequently. Being a dark color, for me, is a good thing..

Great call IMO! I had an RC390 with orange wheels and it made me mental keeping them clean.

Congrats on the new bike!

I took it for a 25 mile sample today. It’s awesome! What a great riding bike. Can’t wait to hit 600miles.

Congratulation
For the black wheels some rim stickers make the difference ;-)

Offer the dealer 9000 for the 19 and have the wheels powder coated for a few hundred $$$.
