New Gear Coming Soon?

I've noticed a lot of closeouts on some popular gear. Helmets, boots and more sold out of several sizes at multiple sites. Is this the time of year that new gear comes out? I discovered the American International Motorcycle Show and see that it is happening next month. Do we typically see new stuff hit the stores after that?

I'm particularly interested in the HJC CL-17, but I don't want to buy one if something else is about to come out.

No responses, so I am not sure anyone cares, but I talked to a really nice and helpful guy at HJC and got some more info. Yes, new stuff is coming out. In fact, dealers like Revzilla and Dennis Kirk already have the new models. That's the reason for the closeouts. HJC is coming out with a replacement for the CL-!7, among others including a new mid-range modular that sits somewhere between the Max 3 and the RPHA 90. Many of the helmets will be Snell 2020. Because of this, they cannot sell them until Snell says it is ok (about 2 months). I also confirmed with Revzilla that when they say closeout, they won't be restocking that particular line again.

The new helmets sounded great, but I went ahead and picked up an HJC CL-17 for $91 (price matched with Revzilla). It's just too much helmet to pass up for $90.

All of that said, I'm sure many of you are not into HJC but I think this information likey applies to the other manufacturers as well. Expect new products 4th quarter and deep discounts on discontinued lines.
