Had to go 2hrs to get mine(#3 dealer), even with 2 competing dealers(#1 & #2) within 45mins of home. I really wanted the 10/11 upgrades and couldn't find a 10 used. Im really happy with the #1 dealer and have told them multiple times I want to keep my business there, this would be my 3rd bike bought there.
Here's the breakdown.
1st run included a bike I was going to trade in:
#1 dealer wanted $9000 OTD inc $300 Kawi rebate
#2 dealer wanted $9120 OTD inc $300 Kawi rebate
These numbers were after talking to them and trying to neg.
2nd try, had sold the bike, so its a cash transaction now.
#3 dealer made a deal on the phone for $6830 OTD
#1 dealer dropped to $8400 OTD, inc $500 Kawi rebate for this month
Didn't call #2 back
Called #1 back asked for a better deal and got $8000 OTD
Had it been $200, maybe $300 diff I would have went to #1, but I just cant eat almost $1200. Best bet is too look around and try hard to get your dealer to step up.
Dealer #4(11hrs from home) was $6650 OTD, but time and additional cost made #3 the one to go to.
