So it would be better to ask about a specific brand - when will they release the "next" kite model ?
As it depends on brand - and makes no sense to put a year on the kite, as most brands are bullshitting this anyway and releasing way before time so their kite will be "old models" next year actually ( ), in order to get us users to think they are waaaay ahead in R&D and miles ahead of all others, by calling their next kite a "2000 and now + some years" if they could
Hilarious, as it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, if one think about it for a while

What I find hilarious is the "race" in order to release a kite as early as possible, and call it "next year"
As it will actually be a kite with less evolution than the later ones
To be fair though, and not just use the year number when released - I would say, that when releasing a kite per year, one could say that if a kite is released after June, it will be "next years model", as it will be present mostly next year.
