I am new to this site, but not new to motorcycles. I live in Lawrence, Kansas and I am trying to find a Suzuki dealer that has an ABS model DL650.

So far a dealer in Grandview, Missouri and Topeka, Kansas have both quoted me prices on a 2009 DL650 without ABS even though I specifically and emphatically (but politely) stated I wanted the one with ABS. I have told both that I very much want the ABS equipped model, but no go. The Missouri dealer offered the DL1000 on the floor now or he will have one in within a month that is a 2009 DL650 without ABS.

The former (Missouri dealer) offered an OTD price of 2009 MSRP ($6,999) plus $169 freight plus $100 fee for the setup, checkout and test ride for an estimated total of $7,268. There will be $416.09 additional to pay for the sales tax so adding that it would be an OTD with tax of $7684.09. The latter (Kansas dealer) offered MSRP plus $521.43 sales tax for a total OTD of $7520.43.

I have contacted other Kansas Suzuki dealers to see what they say about getting the ABS equipped DL650.

Is it just next to impossible to find the DL650 model with ABS in Missouri or Kansas dealerships? Do I just have to go to the Suzuki website and look up every dealer in every state and call them until I find one that has the ABS equipped model in stock or can order or dealer to dealer transfer me in one?

Yes, I realize that the 2009 models are just now coming out and supply is slow in coming. However, given the two Suzuki dealers I have talked to so far, even if the Missouri one sounded willing to work with me, neither seemed willing to get an ABS equipped model for me.

I would appreciate suggestions on how to go about this. Thank ya'll ahead of time for your help.

Also, if this is in the wrong area, please move it to the appropriate one. I am not exactly certain where it should go.

Alot of folks are "hopeful" Suzuki will increase the ABS number of 09. To date, finding an 08 ABS (CONUS) requires time, patience, and money.

Supply and demand are not in the buyer favor. There have been many threads in the short time I've been following this board. Stealerships are marking the price up the the ABS gems to include total msrp, destination, assembly, anything they can legally get away with. All price items that would be waived for a non-ABS version.

For example, my 08 (non-ABS) purchased 3 months ago, got out the door with added center stand installed, and tax for less than listed MSRP.

Only time will tell if the 2009 will have better ABS numbers.

Local dealerships can see and trade with other dealers... Problem is ALL dealerships know and ABS Wee will make them money.

Good luck, and hunting!

北京光盘制作网公司9

本人想买一部支持“DVD+R DL”的DVD刻录机光盘制作。但是听说DVD+R DL光盘在其他机器上经常无法识别。这是真的吗? 答:“DVD+R DL”通过采用双层记录层,光盘制作实现了8.5GB的容量,大约是现有单面双层4.7GB光盘的1.8倍。光盘刻录如果同样是DVD画质,4.7GB只能录制1个小时左右,光盘打印而8.5GB则能录制约1.8个小时。 但令人遗憾的是DVD+R DL光盘的播放兼容性目前比较低却是事实。光盘印刷比如,厂商已经得到这样的报告:在部分DVD设备上播放用最初上市的DVD+R DL刻录机刻录的DVD+R DL光盘时出现“失败

I've got an '09 with ABS (DL650AK9) on order. Shipments of the 2009 non-ABS models were slated for "Sept/Oct" 2008, with ABS models arriving "Nov/Dec".
Since the non-ABS ones started hitting the streets in the first days of September, I'm hoping the ABS ones arrive on the early side too.
List price for ABS is $7500. Mine's running $7000 + tax + 20% off accessories ordered with the bike. No hassles, straight up. Cleveland Ohio.
Happy shopping!

My dealer close to me got one in the day. I was coming to look at a used 2006 model vstrom.
I test drove the 2006 but put a down payment on the 2008 vstrom to hold it. It is black with ABS. I didn't want to go through suzuki financing since they wanted to charge me a arm and a leg.
So I am trying to go through a cheaper alternative. but will find out tomorrow morning. If they are gonna play. If not this shop might have one for sell :p

This is North Georgia though!

I searched a lot in the Ohio area this summer. Could not find one. Quite a few non abs bikes were passing through but not the abs bikes I ended up finding a nice 2006 non abs. If ou find one, I would jump on it.
