I've found most dealers are not willing to sell for anything but sticker. Have you ever bought one for less, and if so how did you do it?

Wow! That's a great deal! I've purchased two under sticker, but only $300-$500.

The question should be have I ever paid MSRP - no. Have I ever bought a brand new bike - no. Always buy used and skip losing my arse on the resell.

I have always paid less than MSRP...I will take the money and walk down the street...Do they want the bike to sit or sell?? If you are willing to look and go get it...there are deals out there...Right now I know of a never titled, still dry 2003 R-1 for under 9K...It is a buy for someone who wants one

The last eight bikes I bought were all new and never paid MSRP for any of them including a 99' R1 when it was first released. GSXR1000/600 all the dirtbikes. The smallest discount I ever got was on a BMW.

I just haggle like anyone else. No one ever needs a motorcycle so you can always walk away, just pick a price point, if they hit it you buy it, if not, walk away.

I got my F4i for about $800 under... I paid $7400 if I remember correctly. It helped though that I had my financing worked out ahead of time and walked in with a blank check that clearly stated not valid over $xxxx.xx, which is the amount I chose what I wanted to pay, so it was clearly a 'take it or leave it' type of deal. I showed them the check and said work your magic, either get it under that amount or no buy. Sure enough they gave me an offer under that amount, including the dealer fees, tax tag title, all that stuff, so I was happy. Even got a $100 coupon for the helmet too.

you can do it all day long in the Los Angeles area. LA Honda, LA Kawasaki, yamaha , suzuki is the cheapest. You just got to go a qtr mile in a crappy neighborhood. :yikes: :yikes: :yikes:
