Like I said before, motorcycle prices on California look a little different than in other places.

It already went down $2k in the last 5 months.

Another way to read this is; I paid $2k more for mine from the same place 5 months ago... And felt I got a pretty good deal.

Saw the 2019 SE model at Gables Motorsports in Miami today. The color scheme works well

California motorcycle prices have always been higher because we can ride all year long and the biggest reason was with the emissions. Very few ways to buy a 49 state legal bike and bring into Cali. If you were in the military or if you had over 7500 miles you could bring it in and register it here. Now that most bikes are all 50 state legal you can go to other states to bring a new bike here.....

I don't think it's high mileage or anything... Just noticed it. Mine is really only 5 months old (despite being a 2016) and already has 8500 miles on it.

Dang... I just realized I told my insurance company less than that for the year. I guess I miscalculated that one.

$9,100? That must be Canadian dollars, no?

In December I bought my 2015 Hi-Speed Lime Green 650 LT (yes, w/ABS)
4,300 miles - new condition (garaged, never dropped)
fog lights
brand new rear tire
upgraded seat
grip warmers & shields
12v accessory port

- and drove it away for $6,400 tax & reg. included.
