What does this do for the resale value, anything? Will it be cheaper to pick up used Strykers now?

The resale is already pretty low. I can definitely see it being easier to get used or even new Strykers as dealers try to clear them out of inventory.

I guess aftermarket parts will become scarce as well, if they aren't producing bikes they wont produce aftermarket parts I guess.

The Japanese cruisers enjoy almost zero aftermarket support as is...i'm sure what little is there will slowly dwindle off.

For sure the aftermarket will all but disappear. As far as factory parts I believe they (Yamaha) is required to keep a stock and distribution of OE parts (not accessories like sissy bars, windshields,etc) for a number of years. Unfortunately, I don't see the Stryker having too much of a following like an XS650 or the Honda CB's from the 80's where there is still a decent aftermarket.

I assume mamma Yama knows what they are doing in leaving the cruiser market. I don't have a clue what the reason would be. The Bolt was pretty popular and they sold a ton of 650's and 1300's. But who knows, maybe they are pulling the cruisers for a couple/few years to rethink and totally redesign the Raider, Stryker and Bolt (doubtful).

Last demo day I attended(previous Father's Day), I test rode the MT-09. It was a blast and it appears this style of bike is getting really popular. There is a MC Garage video on comparing these bikes to crotch rockets and the crotch rockets didn't do all that well.

I'll miss having Yamaha cruisers to choose from when the time comes to replace but Yamaha, HD and the rest can only build what sells. Yamaha, Honda and the like are more flexible than say Indian or HD because they already produce other styles of bikes than just cruisers.

Time will tell. Things are cyclic...

Bolt is still there, and strangely enough vmax is still there. And vstar 250. All the rest of star lineup is gone. It doesn't seem to make any sense.
