2012 Prices

Hello All,

I just wanted to get an update as to what kind of deals people are getting on the new DL. I have a sense that dealers are being a little stingy because of the 0% financing deal... Some dealers here in the NW are advertising at $8699.00 - some deal !!

Thanks,

John

If that price included all taxes and fees, I would think that is a fair price. But, to each their own. If the dealer is getting a lot of inquiries and thinks they will sell, they will be harder to deal with.

Boston area: Mine was close to $8k after the $500 discount from list and the bullshit fees were added back in. I paid cash for it.

I also had to pay sales tax directly to the state.

2012 Price

I may have paid too much, but I got one for $7900 + TTL with 0% financing. I tried to haggle down to $7500, but that was as low as they would go. I called 6 or 7 dealers and they were the only ones that currently had a 2012. Probably hurt my negotiating position, but I wasn't sure I'd be able to find another by the end of the 0% promotion.

I told one dealer I wanted it for 7500 and he flipped his lid. Thought he was going to throw me out of the dealership. He went off on a rant about how he would not sell for a loss.

That ranting crap doesn't work on me. I just get up and walk out without saying anything. Never had it happen with a bike dealer, but it seems to be a favorite of car dealers.

Thanks for the replies... I guess it is supply-demand thing for the most part... I think that for now $8000.00 OTD is about the best we can do - at least until then end of the 0% promo., and until stock increases. It appears to be stock is now flowing from the warehouses after the delay due to the brake switch recall.

RE: dealer cost - I have not run the dealer cost of the '12 - but when I bought my '09 - in January of '09 - the markup was between 12 and 13% - if that rate still applied, dealer cost for the '12 would be $7300 or so...and that does not include dealer holdback...

I don't recall the name of the website where one can find dealer cost - but I have used it twice, and it appeared to be accurate, and very helpful in negotiating price...I wonder if anyone else has found the dealer cost figure for the base model?

Oh, and BTW, we have no sales tax in Oregon, although we now have 4 year licensing which is more expensive...

If that includes DMV fees, you got a very good deal. Congrats!

Yep, includes all fees. I only regret not taking advantage of the $200 sidecase deal (I'm sure I could have negotiated them in even though that offer is only for the 2011 models).
