Factory dealers (such as Brampton and Newmarket, selling both cars and bikes), notoriously compete between each other for customers. Considering MSRP of 8999 (9499 w/ABS), it does seem that they’re offering the best deal ie. 7399 for regular Wee and 7999 for ABS one. Adding approx. 600 (maybe even less) for freight, PDI, admin fee and then taxes on top of that should be rock-bottom price one could pay for new Wee.
Other dealers like Cycle Worlds, Miltons etc, who don’t enjoy same privileges from Suzuki motherhood as factory dealers, will be charging as much as they can get away with but may never be as competitive as the first two. Anyone remembers what happened to McBride's dealership?
While it does make sense to support local dealer as you may need some factory accessories you can get better deal on if you bought bike from them, and/or maintain your bike there and/or they’re just close to you, you can get a lot of farkles or gas for a grand… Not to mention that used ones, while rare find, are going for same price as new ones - go figure
Had I known how much pleasure riding a Wee is :mrgreen:, I’d jump on one much sooner than I have…
Good Luck shopping!!
