'08 DL650's low in supply; What should I pay?
Hello all. I've been trolling the site for a while getting acquainted to the Stroms. I'm sold that the Wee will be my next bike. I am closing the deal on selling my Honda 599 later this week and want to put the funds into a Wee. I really prefer to get a new one, though am not completely opposed to a used in near mint condition.
I've run across an apparent supply issue. For the last year when I window shopped local Suzuki dealerships from time to time, they always had a couple DL650's collecting dust, one and even 2 years out models. They couldn't get rid of them. All of a sudden, the 5 dealerships in my area (Jax, FL) don't have Wee's, don't know if they'll get anymore '08's, and only one says they have the ability to get one if a deal is struck.
If my local dealer can truly put their hands on one, or if I have to drive to a dealer in another city, at most what should I pay? MSRP on a non-ABS is $6699. And from what I gather, I may be paying every bit of that. What about the freight, delivery, etc.? I've heard that those fees are already built into the MSRP and its all just pure profit for the dealers.
Any advice or insight you can provide is most certainly appreciated.
