I hope you are right but the two dealer I spoke to were not budging and inch on the price. Some people already had deposits down and they recommneded the same. Last year both local dealers were sold out before the were even shipped. I love KTM and have owned two LC4's in the past but the recent price increase is insane! A 625 SMC Motard is 8598! That is nuts! They were 7200 two years ago.
PS Are there many diff. between lets say an 03 and 06? I have to do some research here to find out.
