Pricing of the HP2 bikes is the main issue IMO; around here there's a 2006 HP2 enduro going for $18K (private party seller), there's a used (less than 1K mile on the odo though) 2009 HP2 Sport going for $20K.
We'll have to wait for official pricing on the HP4 but it may actually end up being cheaper than any of the used HP2 bikes.
