Buy a brand new bike? Or should I get a used gen 2?

I'm in the market for a SV650 and I'm trying to decide if I should spend a little more and get one of the new ones or save some money and get a naked gen 2.

Option 1: wait however long it takes for a used gen 2 to show up for sale in my area, buy it, and sell my current 2008 Vulcan 900 Custom next spring when I can likely get the most money for it.

Option 2: trade my Vulcan in at the dealership and buy the brand new 2018 SV650 ABS they still have on the showroom floor on manager special for $5500.

I'm not usually one to buy a brand new bike or car, but if the deal is right I might be interested. The dealer has a brand new 2018 model with ABS that is currently marked down on manager special for just over $5500. It's the last 2018 model they have at the dealership and they are looking to get rid of it. Does anyone have any experience buying a brand new bike like this? I'm wondering how much more I can get them to drop the price. What does everything think is a good price for a brand new 2018 model when it's almost 2020?

But is it worth it to buy the new model vs picking up a used gen 2? I really like the way both bikes look, and since it's November I won't be doing any riding for a while even if I get a bike now. So I guess I can afford to wait until I find a gen 2 for sale.

Any input is definitely appreciated. I guess my main questions are should I get the brand new 2018 bike vs finding a much cheaper gen 2? And if so, what's the best price you think I could get from a dealer who's looking to get rid of their last 2018 bike on the floor?
