Well here in Dallas, you can get a brand new 09 for $5198 and pay taxes when you get it back home.

Here is a link to the Dealer

Why are they so cheap in big D? My local dealer has a Blue and a Green, both sticker priced at the markdown price of $6499.00.

More like the Kawasaki warehouse is closer to Dallas than MO. The '09s are running from $6300 to $7500 OTD around here.

Same in Michigan....at least back in early October of last year they were.

Yes, I could have saved a bundle if I waited till this spring but then...There may not of been any left.
You can wait forever to get a better price but then you end up with nothing in the mean time....LOL

I got mine mid-May for $6299 otd. There was several dealers within driving distance of here that had '09's a month ago. Now there's only one and they've only come down to $5299 (plus tax, title, license, delivery & setup) which ends up around $6k otd.

My take, find a reasonable (may not be the best possible) deal and snag it while you can!

WOOT, There is a few dealers here in Oklahoma selling them for $4,999 for a new left over 2009. It must be the cost of living or something pushing the prices up for the northers states.

Save up and pay cash my friend. The ride is so much better when it's paid for.
