If you are having trouble in AZ getting a deal, give these guys a call;
If you can get yourself to Palm Desert CA, probably about 250miles from your home, these guys will do you a terrific deal. They just sold a friend of mine an FJR, way below list (several thousands). If you do your deal over the phone, get it confirmed by email/fax/writing, so you won't get messed around when you walk in. They have a green on the floor as of yesterday.
There are a few used V's out there, but you'll have to travel to pick up those as well. As you know list on the V is $7099.00, plus tax and tabs they were going out the door for a bit less than $8k. Now dealers are really 'dealing', so you might get a new one OTD for around $6,500.00.
When it comes to financing, in my view, you are better to walk in with cash in hand-i.e. borrow from the bank, credit union etc.
Best of my knowledge Kawasaki doesn't have any special financing going at the moment.
If it were me in this market I would walk into my local dealer with $6500.00 cash in hand (maybe a little extra hidden), show 'em the money and see what happens.
You have a bunch of Kawasakidealers in AZ, choose 3-4 and try cash in hand and see what happens. Motorcycle dealers are desperate at the moment-many on the edge of going tits up, its a shame but their loss could be your gain.
