I've seen people posting up bieks that they got for 8500 brand spankin new from dealer. All dealers around me ahve told me 10K for the 08 r6 and 7800-8500 for a used 07....where are people finding these crazy steals?
I really found this price in one day... Called up the first dealer, asked for bottom dollar out the door, told them I was serious in buying it in a week or so. Then bounced from one dealer to the next. Talked to 6 or 7 dealers, told them the prices I was getting from the other ones and to see if they could beat it. I went from $10,100, $9851, $9500, $9210, $9160....
Call around locally and do the same, you'll be amazed how fast that price drops when you tell them that you've called "so and so" at "their location", everytime I called a new place they came up with a new price!
To clarify some things. To be a Yamaha dealer you MUST carry both bikes and atvs. Some areas have no reason to stock bikes becuase they dont sell. They must have so many per year to stay a dealer. Those dealers will give you an awesome price on a new bike but sometimes the price will change throughout the year due to aquisition costs to the dealer. Areas heavy in bike sales are doubtful to give you a great price. Your best bet is buy a last year leftover or buy out of your area as mentioned. Romney (sp?) WV has deals if your on East Coast.
