What's A Fair Price?

I was doing some thinking, and I wanted to see how consumers would respond to this. What would be a fair market price for a manufacturer to make money and have consumer's pockets not bleeding to sell high quality aftermarket fairings? I'm not talking about 'cheap plastic' that would crack kind of fairings. I'm talking quality abs plastic, with a 99.9% fitment like OEM fairings made right here in the states. Please respond with painted and primered fairings as a sales option.

Chillin'... while the Lord watches over me!

I love my R6, but I'm ashamed... I need an '08 R1!

Re: What's A Fair Price?

Seeing how auctmarts are like $550-$650 I'd say a better quality product painted should be able to charge at least that much.

Injection moulds are ~$15k each. Imagine the cost divided over 3 years vs your sales. You'd need about 100% over cost to cover your bills and make money as well as make the distributor/dealer money. It's costly to do it right. That's why the "good ones" cost $600+ a set.

Re: What's A Fair Price?

Let's say for argument sake, we'll ignore all overhead, molding cost, etc. Seeing as how OEMs are close to $2000 or so, I was thinking about $1200 give or take painted with a quality that's very close to OEM (if they were side by side with OEM, majority of the population wouldn't be able to tell the difference, not including paint).

Re: What's A Fair Price?

I wouldn't want to pay more than 1k painted.

But why would anyone want such expensive aftermarket fairings? Most use aftermarket stuff for track only. In that case, it doesn't make sense to get something that would be a massive write-off as soon as you drop the bike.

For those that ride street, you either have money for full coverage (which would cover repairs if shit went down) or you don't (in which case you wouldn't be able to afford expensive aftermarket plastics).

-Alex

EDIT: Just checked and I can get every plastic (minus hardware) fully painted with decals for my bike for 1.5k all OEM.

Why would we ignore overhead? I'd say that would be important while figuring out the price. Why are you posing this hypothetical situation? Are you planning on cornering the market on aftermarket fairings, or just wonder?

Re: What's A Fair Price?

Cornering the market? No. Side money or to help others out? Yes. Have them made to order for people who drop their bikes w/o full coverage, or need 1 or 2 fairings because of some mishap.

Overhead isn't a problem as they are not mass produced, and raw materials can be had for free. Basically a 1-2 man job, where salaries aren't a concern.
