New 2014 DL650 dealer price

Hi all, first post for me here at Stromtrooper. I'm shopping for a 650 but still undecided about whether to buy new or used, mostly because there seems to be pretty much no used Stroms available where I am at - South central Idaho. I have the cash to spare to buy new plus gear (I'm returning to riding after several years), but not averse to saving a buck on a lightly used machine either.

My local dealer has a brand new '14 DL650 in white sitting in his showroom. He says with the current incentive programs available from Suzuki, I can get it out the door for $8300, including Idaho sales tax and the bullshit dealer fees. That's a few hundred bucks cheaper than the MSRP on Suzuki's website.

I would be paying cash with nothing to trade in.

Do you guys think this is a good deal? Is there anything I should be looking out for?

I would jump on that if it is a true out the door price.

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
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Thanks

I guess that remains to be seen. I haven't gotten anything in writing from them.

Not to hijack...but I was wondering the same on new pricing with dealers.

So I've stopped into several dealers lately as I'm considering moving to a Wee. I'm continually amazed at how clueless many of them are about their own products. I always seem to have to inform them about their own bikes and the industry in general... Why are they there? Most don't even seem to show a passing interest in motorcycles.... how else could the be so clueless??

I've bought all my bikes used so never tried to deal with a dealer. So do they all play this "dealer fee" and other BS game? Had one I called about a leftover '13 Wee and she quotes me basically MSRP for what a '14 should be. She seemed to have no desire to try and give me any sort of deal. WTH??

I guess I'll just stick to buying a good used bike if this is how all the dealers are...

It really comes down to the individual sales people. I have been successful getting OTD prices via the phone. Idaho currently has $500 customer cash on the DL650.

Do you know how long that promotion will run for? I'm not planning on pulling the trigger until September.

Thanks!

I just picked up my '14 650 on sunday. I went to my nearest dealer just to get an idea of pricing and they quoted $9150 OTD. My girlfriend is in the M/C industry, so she had one of her customers get me their best deal. I got it for $8200 OTD.

There is a 2013 advertised Canadian $.
Sale Price: $6,879.99

New/Used: New
New Usage Unit: 0
Primary Color: BLUE

Hard to believe couldn't be OTD for under $8000 Cdn.

I know question was about 2014, but this seem a really good price. Not sure of changes from 2013 to 2014.

I went back to the dealer this afternoon and got an OTD price in writing: $8190! I think I will be back in the morning to close the deal

He said he only sells about 1 Strom per year - explains the utter lack of used ones in the area I think. This town is very much Harley and dirt bike territory.
