    That price from the dealer is outrageous! Way too much. He is fishing and you should not bite!
    Look around. Lots of good used bikes out there and at reasonable prices. The bike I traded in was a '05 but looked and ran like new with very low mileage. It was super well cared for and it showed. But then the dealer jacked up his asking price on it to some over inflated price (Like $3995) waiting for some newbie sucker to come in and buy it not knowing what the market was. Even if a bike that age is perfect its still used and it is worth less.

    Keep shopping.....
