Thumbs down The $20,920 Vstrom

No... It's not gold wrapped...
It's the actual price (in US dollars) of a plain looking 2016 (no farkles) Vstrom 650 at the local dealer in Ecuador South America.
So... last time you bitch and yell at unfair dealer prices, think of us poor souls in developing countries where 14% sales taxes and where any bike above 300cc is considered luxury and has a whole heap of additional taxes... and is not even the japanese bike, these are assembled in Colombia
(Yamaha MT tracer $22,920 -- Honda NC750X $ 19,900 -- BMW F800 $ 23,000)


Out of the night that covers me,
Full of taxes and high prices
I curse whatever gods may be
For my government' greed.


Just venting....
Thankfully my 2015 Vstrom was only $14,000

Look for prices in Argentina.
I own a 2009 V1000. Bought it in April 2016 with 8.000 miles for $ 17.000 (good price)
Brand new ? A lot more........
I sold a 2009 Bandit 650 for $ 13.600 in December.

Motorcycles over $ 4.000 (125 / 250 / 300 cc) are luxury vehicles......

Cars ? The cheaper is over $ 20.000

In Argentina 1 dolar = 16.3 argentinian pesos (January 05 2017)

This might be a stretch but what if you flew up to the states, bought one and rode it home. It would be a nice first adventure.

Can't legalize it in Argentina.

Only if you live in other country for a wilde, can import a motorcycle and legalize it if you prove you'll live in Argentina again.
The cost and headache and very big. Most of the people buy ir here brand new
