Best OTD price for a 2014 KTM 500 EXC????

Hey folks simple ??? Who had the best price, where, amd who did you deal with... I know these are a hot commodity right now bit lay it on me...

I have a deposit already at three bros with Eduardo...

I do not want to go outta state

Del Amo quoted 13,500 with the Costco buying program they are high...

I just want a point to start the grinding....


You can PM me as well if you want

I want reasonable....


Lemme know what's out there people!!!



Thx Jim...

MSRP on a 2014 500EXC is approximately $10,000, correct? I'd find another dealer and try to pay less than retail. $13,500 is insane. Last spring, I bought a new 2013 KTM 690 Enduro R for a few hundred under MSRP with no additional fees (no prep, no delivery, no doc fees).

Where are you located?

High is an understatement, they need to step away from the pipe

There's plenty of dealers out there that will ship you one for much less. It's not that uncommon to buy a KTM that way.

Based on google results, it looks like you're in California, correct? Remember, it's a big world out there. Not everyone knows where Culver City is.

I've never been to CA, but from what I understand vehicles are sometimes insanely priced out there (as you confirmed in your original post). I would not rule out buying a bike outside of your immediate area, especially if it saves you $3,500.

Call around, some dealers are happy to sell a bike to add one to the until count for next to no profit.

If the new bikes are 50 staters, I would give Mike at Cyclezone in Topeka KS a call.

http://www.cyclezonektm.com/index.htm

Never bought a bike from him. I have bought a lot of parts. They will call you, email you with questions, and ship orders as promised. I haven't seen much better customer service in parts and accessories. Don't let the Calif. prices restrict your shopping.

If you felt abused at Del Amo, you'll feel raped at Mission Motorsports. 3 Brothers should treat you right. I was just in there last week. Another dealer you could check is Berts Mega Mall. I've never dealt with them on a new purchase but I got a good deal on my used 690.

there are various motorcycle search engines...

here are just a few:

oodle.com

us.yakaz.com

findanycycle.com

cycletrader.com

research...research...research....
we work too hard for our buck.... dig a lil deeper via net... and you will find.

know the bike inside out... check it out at a local spot if even pricey... ask a shitload of questions... verify all what you've read and researched...and purchase where cheapest but most honest... we live in the information age... it's out there... just look... dealers will respect you more if you know your material...

good luck...

oh... BTW, saw an left over two weeks ago... Pittsburgh Pa... '13 500 exc for $8200.... no miles...

and another in Baltimore MD for $8240 ('13 500 exc) with 4600 miles, aftermarket FMF...

all discovered via either oodle or us.yakaz....

good luck...

You really can't compare prices from Pa or MD to So Cal. There are just so many more people in the market out here. We ride/buy year round. Taxes are high and prices are higher.

Check with Mike at Cyclezone KTM. No one else could come close to his price including the 250 bucks to ship here to Vegas. He is referenced by a previous post. I bought mine from him. Excellent price and service. Very hassle free.
