I do not see a street legal 4t selling for less than a 200 2t. Right now, our local dealer has 2011 350 XC-F for $8199. Is it even possible for them to sell a 2012 of the same displacement for $2,000+ less????? If it is, I will be the 1st in line for a heaping plate of crow. My bet is that it will be in the $7,500 to $8,000 range, which prices it out of anyone loyal to any Asian brand.
