Question-2012 DL650 *new* from dealer

I'm in the market for a new DL650, and I visited two different dealers.
My question is: #1 dealer said this is how the 650 is shipped, and this is what you get (photo on left)
#2 dealer said this is how the 650 is shipped, and this is what you get (photo on right)
Both bikes have the same msrp price of $9788.00

Is dealer #1 dreaming? (No bags, and no crash bars)

Dealer #1 is mistaken or lying. Suzuki Cycles - Product Lines - Cycles - Products - V-Strom 650 - 2012 - DL650AADV

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Sounds like the dealer put the accessories on a standard version for somebody and maybe the sales person doesn't realize its missing all the extras you are paying for.

Were plain black '12 s available if ordered from American Suzuki without the luggage? of course, they should be at the lower price of the orange bike.

no, you are right. I spoke to my dealer today and they said that the 2012's std model are so far on back order. Some dealers may be pulling accessories to sell as std model. He also mentioned that they arent listed as the 0%/60 mon. Anymore

They may be technically right that that is how the black adventure 650 "is shipped" - without the luggage or side racks. The dealer may be supposed to install that. I'd be kind of surprised if they were crated up on the container ships with luggage racks already attached to them, at any rate; isn't that what the so-called "prep fees" are supposed to cover? (They're mandatory, you know - can't not charge that. :mrgreen
