One local dealer quoted me a decent price for a 2012 bike I'm considering and said their dealer costs were $109.
I went to another dealer, still here in Denver, and he wouldn't quote me a price and wanted over $600 in "dealer costs"!! WTF??
So for those of you that have been around the block a few times, what should I "reasonably" expect to pay in fees and what sort of mark-downs from MSRP should I be looking for on left-over 2012 models? Talking about a $6000 bike....not some $17,000 KTM.
Go to Apex in the Springs. By far the best dealership I've ever dealt with. The parts counter is a different story. Gary, the tire guy, is a great guy and great help when you go to buy tires.
Denver dealerships are a bunch of overpriced tools.
If you have cash, make them aware. Quote "out the door" and tax included for your county/city/area. Don't be afraid to walk. You have the advantage this time of year.
