$5699 for 2015 DR650S?

Pro Calber in Vancouver quoted me a best price of $5699+$499 freight/setup+tax/title. All in that'll be around $6800 OTD. 0% financing as well. While I could pay cash, kinda nice to have free money.

Anyhow, thoughts on the price? Thanks!!!

$499 for freight and setup? Seems kinda high to me.

They will try to get you to pay more once you are in the middle of the deal, Bro Caliber is a terrible dealer. I would recommend getting a quote from Bob Landphere Beaverton Honda and a few other places around Portland first before you pull the trigger there.

Thanks. Pro Caliber is closer which is why I spoke to them. Hillsboro advertised that price and they said they would match it.

Agreed. Figured I would try and work that down a bit.

Why buy a new DR when they have not changed in years? You can get a very low mile clean ones for almost half the cost, some with some nice mods too.

I've got a pal with a 2013 DR650S that has only 2,710mi. on it. He bought it new in Dec 2013. I was with him for virtually all of them and most of those were easy, pavement-touring type miles. Bike's never been down or tipped over. It's always slept indoors and he's afraid of riding in the rain so it's only seen a few wet miles.

It has an Acerbis 5gal tank (clear) and the factory takeoff, Acerbis handguards, bar risers, Seat Concepts seat, and a custom pannier rack he fabbed up, but other'n that, it's stock.

He wants $5k (firm). Send me a PM if you're interested with your contact info. and I'll have him give you a call. (bike resides in Cottage Grove, OR)

^^^ Exactly, keep looking for a well sorted used 1, even a fly & ride. Bloody dealers & their fees, it's bulls hit & you won't get them down any...maybe a free pen if you're lucky.
He'll that's alot of money for a DR, if you do buy new, look into something maybe a bit bigger & more comfortable for touring etc. Ahh each to there own I spose, just my 2 cents. Good luck.

I would walk in with a wallet full of cash and see what their real price is.

I always buy used but I suppose somebody needs to buy new first.

I picked up my damn near spotless 05 that was ready for adventure for $3100 a couple years ago. Just keep your eyes open for a deal.

I've bought 2 new DR's over the years, both were just under MSRP OTD. So, at $6800 I think you can do a little better.

Maybe I'm a dissenting vote for new, but knowing that I planned to keep my DR's for the long term (the 2009 was totaled and replaced with a 2012) I wanted to put the miles on and be sure of what maintenance was done.

I know a couple guys who bought used DR's for half what I paid and had thousands of trouble free miles...and sold them for almost what they paid.

So, the case can be made for new or used, as long as you are an informed buyer and not in a hurry. Patience is your friend on this deal.

Consider looking up North

I just bought a 2013 with 2600 Km (not Miles!) for $4700 CAD from a dealer in Langley (Vancouver, BC). It came with a Sargent Seat, rest stock. At this moment, that translates to $3901 USD.

Edited...

Actually, it appears they are selling it close to MSRP, you just have tax and title added to come up with the $6800. We don't have tax in Oregon, so I was missing that part of it.
