Re: New 954's for $8k?

I keep reading about people getting new 954's for $8000-8300. Where on earth are you getting this? My local stealer wants $8999 for a 2002 and $9899 for an 03.

Nice picture, Holeshot. Lakehill was indeed selling them for $8400 last I spoke with them.

Apex in Auburn is selling them for $9800 out the door. I think that works out to 8300 + tax + this + that

Got my '02 for $7999 + tax + fees + this + that at Spectrum Honda in Irvine, CA in October. They no longer have the ad on their site, which they've been screwing around with for months.

Re: New 954's for $8k?

$7999 + this + that means they're selling the bike for whatever you paid total. It's frustrating to hear about dealers doing that to people. They advertise a bike for a very low price and then tack on BS fees to make the price of the bike out to be well above their invoice cost. Many people get tricked into thinking that they got the bike for a steal when really, they paid more than what an informed buyer should be able to talk a dealer down to. I'm definitely not flaming you, I'm just using your example to show how dealers like to work.

Lakeside is selling them for $8399 out the door. The invoice price of the bike is mid $8k so they're actually taking a loss now in order to cash in on the 5% kickback Honda will give them in September.

You should always go to Cycle Cost to buy the actual, dealer-cost of the bike you want before even stepping foot into the dealership. They can wheel, deal, spin, and BS all they want, but once you slap down the numbers and call their bluffs (and I mean, really call them -force them to grab their factory manuals to prove you right), you can press them to admit to you for what they are and are not willing to sell a bike. Then you can decide what you're willing to pay and you can go from there.

I paid 8799 otd here in Oklahoma. Coulda paid the 8400 at Lakehill but the gasoline and drive-time would have evened it out. Besides Bartlesville Honda was the fastest and easiest deal I have ever done.

So your saying that they are selling them for $8399 out the door and that includes tax and license fees right? Another reason they sell it for a lower price and tack other fees on is to lower the tax cost. I just wanted to understand you correctly

No. You will pay for tax and license in your homestate. You are paying for the bike and nothing more.

I would advise anyone looking into a new motorcycle to evaluate the Lake Hill Motors price + getting it back to your home. I will probably use them when I get my next bike. Their price + a few hundred to have it crated here is still probably cheaper than you are going to pay locally in some/many cases.
