Which machine for $1500?

Which machine would you purchase for $1500 and why?

A new 2018 Platinum 28 SHO with 369cc or a used (like new) 2014 Pro 28 with 420cc?

Both are 28" with auto-turn and friction disk transmission
Pro 28 has a larger engine and is heavier
Platinum 28 would come with a warranty

I'd go new, myself, mainly because I know where it's been for sure. The Pro, even though it's in great shape, is still 4 years old. $1500 seems a little steep for that when you can get a brand new Pro 28 for $2200.
