2012 Pricing

Hi All,

Great forum. I've heard about it for some time now on the ADV forum. I'm ready to drink the Wee Kool-Aid for the first time. I know the 2012's are probably in demand at the dealers, but I'm wondering what people are paying, (especially in Central Texas) just so I have a sense of whether or not I'd be wasting my time trying to get the salesman to negotiate.

2012 Pricing

I was quoted $7500 +TTL in the Chattanooga, TN and North Ga markets. One dealer had no "doc" fee and the other had a $99 fee. Extremely reasonable for this bike.

Keep in mind that there have to be at least two items on the negotiating table. There must be something you want more than the other, and vice versa for the other party. If a lower price is what you need, what can you offer---rapid purchase, or purchase-for-sure, or what? Some dealers might give the lower price if you just ask for it, and others might need to see that you are serious about buying. And, some won't dicker.

Are you ready to buy, now, if the dealer cuts the price, what?, $200 or $300 or what? Know what you want and what you'll walk away from. If you need a lower price, be sure the dealer knows for sure that you'll walk.

"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."

Here in the Peoples Republic of California they are going for $8299 + TTL (and that is NOT the Adventure model). Like PTRider said "Know what you want and what you'll walk away from."

2011 ABS Wee A few farkles added so far....

Don't over look the fire sale price on the new 2011's remaining along with the special pricing including bags on these remaining wee's.

Just got my 2012 in NY (Long Island) for about $7750 before TTL - $9K exactly after TTL (8.875% sales tax, over $100 for title, regi, plate, inspection) and some OEM accessories installed for pickup (hand guards, center stand), which is also taxed at 8.875%. As a price for their first bike uncrated I was pretty happy.
