Brand New DL650 $5,899 Northern VA

I thought I’d pass this along

Colman Motorsports, Woodbridge, VA has one leftover Red ’06 V-Strom 650 (brand new 0 miles) in inventory. I was seriously considering buying this myself but I decided to keep the ’04 and buy more farkels with the savings. I have absolutely no affiliation with this dealership and actually consider them one of the worst stealerships in the area BUT they have a 650 for a great price. I was able to negotiate a $300 accessories credit into the deal (didn’t try hard). The sales (I’m being generous with that term) kid even said there was probably a couple hundred dollars of wiggle room in the deal.

Anyway you can find the details at http://www.wherethepoweris.com/new_v...526&pov=355645

2009 DL650 Orange, Very early start to 60K
2004 DL650 Blue (sold)

"one of the worst stealerships in the area" - i couldn't agree more. I was going to buy a bike from them once but back out because of all the add on charges. A $6,800 bike was going to cost me $8,000 OTD. I found the same bike at another dealership for exactly $6,800 OTD.

I bet the $5,899 price is not the OTD price.

They've been advertising that price since I got mine back in August (from a dealer with more resonable fees). Basically they wanted like $1000 in fees on top of that price. If that is the OTD price great, but if not then you are looking at $6700 to $6900 OTD. They may be willing to deal more now.

I know the $5,899 is not the OTD price but the OTD price can vary from buyer to buyer. Tax, tags and title are based on where you ultimately register the bike so there’s no point in telling someone who lives out of state what the OTD price is for a VA resident. I was simply pointing out that on top of the fairly decent price they were also throwing in a multi hundred dollar accessory credit to sweeten the deal. Yes, now that you all mentioned it, there was a $300ish freight charge but, yet again something that can be negotiated. Still IMHO $6,200 (plus tax, title, tags) and a $300+ accessory credit is still not a bad deal

When I was shopping last year I would have been happy to find a left over K5 for full retail let alone one that is only a few hundred more than what they are going for used. I simply thought someone else would appreciate the heads up.

'06 DL650 Price

I just paid $5,800 (plus state tax which we have no control over) for the last '06 DL650 in the dealer's inventory on 12/29/06. No freight, dealer set-up, doc fees, etc. Just like in an auto purchase, the last day of a month, quarter or year end is the best time to buy / negotiate a good deal. Also, kinda helps that our son is the service writer there too and our family has bought quite a few bikes from them. IMHO, the more loyal you can be to one dealership, the better deals you will get on bikes, parts, service preference, etc.

I just secured an 07 DL650 in the bay area of Ca. for $6600 otd. Plus an option on the extended warranty, $370 fir an extra 4 year and $460 for an extra 5 years. So for $460 I get 6 years, unlimited milage, no deductible. Seems like good insurance to me.

I'd be wary unless you plan to have all oil changes and recommended maintenance done at the dealership before buying the warranty. I have read many posts where Suzuki won't honor the warrany because the person did their own maintenance.

Well thats against the law. All you have to do is have maintenance records of the labor you performed on your bike. Factory maintenance schedule is all they request. Keep the receipt for the oil and filters you but plus all other maintenance. All my other bikes that have had extended warranty work performed on them, no dealer has asked for records. Just did the work. Plus all you have to do is run the recommended quality of oil and filter recommended for the bike. They can't make you run their oil and filter unless they give you the goods for free. Nationwide law. There are a lot of shifty stealers out there so be careful where you take your bike for maintenance.

As you say, OTD sucks as a way to compare bike prices across state lines. But what I think others are saying is that in addition to the fixed TTL charges that vary by state, this dealership is tacking wildy inflated prep and shipping fees that basically take the price back to MSRP and beyond. It's the oldest trick in the book - discount the bike $1K on the floor and then have a $1K prep/ship fee to get back to MSRP.

It's pretty easy these days to negotiate $400 or so off the MSRP with no fees other than TTL. Some are doing even better, but I'd take everything you hear on the net with a grain of salt as people like to brag and/or don't include fees, trade-ins, or other things that muddy the waters.
