Considering Buying New S

Stopped by the local dealer last Friday to look at its inventory and this 2013 S caught my eye. It's a steal at only $8K. My question for the forum is should I get it with 20" rims?

Thom, that's a beautiful ride!

Make sure to option PTS (paint to sample) in some wild colour like Ravenna green. White is too plain...

Air cooled and mid-engine. Can't go wrong with that.

That's simply a re-badged Storck Bicycle at an inflated price.

I wonder if they have solved the IMS issues?

It may be a Stork bike, but it's definitely not the one you linked. Frames are completely different shapes...

The link was purely representational.
