Dealers get a bit hungry in Canada's winter
I think the $850 fee for freight and administration is very full of extra fat and profit. The figure to discuss is the bottom line, what my dealer here in Sarasota calls the Out-The-Door price, the total price you pay for the bike, including all fees and taxes.
I recommend you take your time, and show that you want the best deal you can get, and you don't much care who gives it to you. You might enjoy a jaunt up to London, because the Suzuki dealer there seems quite pleasant. When you get two dealers competing for your business, you generally come out ahead.
You are probably not in a big hurry for the Strom, and dealers only get hungrier as winter wears down their profits. A dealer who won't give you a good deal in November may be willing to try a bit harder in late December or in January.
When I was shopping, one dealer just did not understand that when I asked "How much money do you want for the bike?" I was asking for a number, and not for a runaround. When he didn't specify a price the second time I asked for his best out-the-door price, I said good-bye and went to the competition.
If you can pay cash, you can perhaps do a little better. If the dealer says that he wants $7500, pull seven lovely pink thousand-dollar bills out of your pocket and say, "This is all I want to pay, and I want to pay it NOW." That is an argument that dealers find difficult to resist. Here in the Yewess of Eh, bills over $100 have been retired, so I couldn't use that argument.
The Ontario Stromtroopers are a cordial and helpful bunch, so try to get them to identify dealers who offer good prices. I generally buy parts from Hillcrest Suzuki in Toronto, but I do not think that dealer offers bargains on new bikes.
