800 DE Pricing

Just settled the deal on mine. 11,000 even out the door +Tax and License at Rockingham Suzuki in NC. Since I live in SC I'll pay that part down here.

Romney Cycle in WV was a little cheaper at $10, 807, but much further away.

Both dealers are no haggle dealers prices with no extra fees. However, Rockingham came down $900 on their "no-haggle price."

The bikes are not expected to arrive in CA until May and then will have to be distributed to dealers from there.

The choice was yellow or grey and I went with Yellow (with gold rims).

No 11,000 and I pay ta and License later.

No doubt I am paying a premium for being an early buyer.

FYI - the definition of an OTD price is one that includes vehicle, delivery, taxes, registration etc.
Forgive me. It's like I tell my wife, we have already established I don't know shit and I'm just stumbling through life the best I can.

That is the lowest advertised price I have seen, but does it include all fees? Usually, these prices come with shipping and destination, and dealership fees.

I sent them a contact form to find out.

Edit: Just called and there is a what amounts to about 300 in fees on top of the advertised price, plus tax and license, so it is a VERY GOOD price. About $850 lower than the quote I got from Rockingham yesterday.

That would have forced a decision about flying to MN to pick up a bike. It would have been right on the edge of a possibility, but with a $ flight, $ ground transportation, one night in a $ hotel, and meals, not worth the effort for me.

Anyone closer to MN should explore this though.

I agree, OTD means something different when buying out of state.

In the end, no matter what you call the price, what matters is the clarity/transparency of what is being paid.

For example, for me, $9941 OTD for the base model when I pay SC tax and licensing upon returning home is a great deal. A much better deal than I expected.


Except that the salesman at Discount Cycle in Powhampton VA, comes back from lunch and tells me he quoted the wrong bike and the real price is well above retail. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

Oh well. He's really sorry.

Now, what to do? What to do...
Fly to Minneapolis?

I think I'll keep looking.

Check out MLS Power Sports in KY. I know it might be a bit far to travel but by the time the bike comes in it will be a nice time of year to ride and the trip from Georgetown/Lexington KY would make a down right beautiful trip for you. Fly into town (Lexington) and give me a shout and I can give you a ride over to MLS which isn't far from the airport.
Its in my neck of the woods so any way I can help, give me a shout.
Thanks, but although I locked in with Rockingham and I'm just going to stay with them.

Advice for shoppers. I was calling what was advertised as no-haggle one-price dealerships to get a price. But they have to call the distributor to get the pre-order information. I have good reason to suspect the distributor let on that I had contacted multiple dealerships and now it's impossible to get a price below retail.

Ford (the car company) is seriously exploring doing away with dealerships and adopting a distribution and maintenance model similar to Tesla's. Prices are fixed, cars are on display, and maintenance is handled by third parties.

That might not be so bad.

Depends on how much money you save at what cost in time and travel expenses for sure, but flying in somewhere and riding a bike home is an adventure in itself. And as a fortune cookie told m recently adventure is it's own reward/reason/reward or something like that.

That is a pretty good deal compared to my $11,000 USD plus tax and license.

When do yopu or have you already taken possesion of the bike?
