Worth buying or wait?

I went into a local Southern California dealership today and spoke to a salesperson in regards to a 2019 V4S $37,895 MSRP. I can get the bike for 38k OTD or approximately 3,745 off MSRP since I'm in a county where taxes are 9.5%. Is this a good deal or should I wait for the new V4S. I already have a main bike so I'm in no rush to buy another one. What are your opinions, thanks.

$38k for a bike that retails for $28?
What accessories will be installed for that price? The full exhaust?

I found a 2019 V4S for $24,000 plus fees in Pennsylvania

Comparing out of state prices are pointless. Literally 0 value.

It's obviously a typo since the only bike in that price range is a speciale. If it is a speciale, then it's not bad. For a corse S model, 28k otd would be ok i guess, especially on a 2019 model. Even though it may be a brand new bike, it's already considered a year old so off the bat, there's an even bigger depreciation on that bike. If you don't ever plan on selling it, then it doesn't matter. A 2019 normal v4s could be had for less than that I'm sure. Just gotta continue to shop around, especially since you're not in any rush.

Montgomeryville Cycle Center, they have a lot of brands under 1 roof in the Philadelphia area

They sold me my 1299S and have done lots of work to it, very happy with this dealership.
They could probably ship it. I see that nasty $800 freight charge on the tag... negotiate that off

Woops... for some reason I thought it was a 2 instead of a 3. The MSRP is $27,859 and OTD is 28k. But thanks for the responses so far.

I appreciate the response. This might be the path ill be taking since its not a killer deal. The 2020 with the updated aero and electronics seems more enticing since I'm not really saving much.

There’s one 2020 V4 S in stock at Ducati Sanford. I’m going to see it this week. I’m so in love with the updated looks. To me it’s worth an extra $4k for the updated “V4R” styling just like it’s worth it to some people to have the $6,000+ racing exhaust fitted.
The bikes seem pretty sorted out at this point so yeah it’s time to buy!

I thought the 2020 models would be available in April but here they come

The dealer I was at told me they are receiving their first 2020 at the end of the month.
