Went to dealer again

So I go to my local Honda dealer. Santa Clarita Motorsports. They have the same four 05 1000RR's sitting on the floor that they had last June. They even have one Repsol. Now that the 06's have been announced those '05's should
go pretty cheap. So if anyone is looking for one you might be able to get one cheap. Oh, they also have an 05, titanium RC51. Sweet looking bike. That too has been there since June.

Re: Went to dealer again

The 05 will drop some in price, but I personally doubt that the Repsol Edition will. It is a limited number production. Someone here in Colorado Springs is asking $13,500 for their's. Thats not to say they are going to get it, but their asking it.

Re: Went to dealer again

Dealers have to begin paying on stock that sits there on the floor too long...I have walked out of a dealership over 100.00 on a deal I was trying to get on a 900RR in 1999. I was glad I did...because 2000 was the year I bought the 929. Best part was - that 900RR was sitting there when I rolled in on my 929!

Team Honda - well sorta...

Re: Went to dealer again

Bloomington Power sports to my knowledge still has a Ti 954 on their show room. I bought mine around $1,500 cheaper and told the sales guy to pound sand. Last time I was in there I asked him how much for the outdated 954, he did not answer and walked away.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

What an asshat! The owner of that shop must be a prick with the tightest asshole you could imagine to still be hanging on to a 2 year old bike.

Re: Went to dealer again

There are four or five Repsols at local dealers here. Funny how so many think they are a 'limited edition' when Honda has never stated as such, and you can buy all the body parts from any Honda dealer. It is nothing more than a 'special edition' with fancy colors and stickers.

but you need a VIN number to get those body parts and stickers. plus a second loan just for them.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Went to dealer again

Yeah, I just don't understand why these dealers just don't cut their losses and sell the older bikes at cost. I haven't talked to the salesmen about the bikes I saw. But I have talked to them in the past about other things and I don't think most of them have a clue as to what really makes one bike better than other. They try the old line "It's a <insert racer name here> edition." Or "it has more power because it is a race replica." Or "this bike will smoke all the other bikes in its class." And the sales folks just don't seem to really know the bike industry in general and what the comparative performance information is for various bikes in each class.
