I am curious as to what sort of prices you are generally expected to pay in relation to the MSRP tag on new bikes.
In the new car world, you never really expect to pay full MSRP. I would almost go as far to say if you do pay MSRP on a new car you got "suckered." Salesman even offer marginal discounts off the MSRP up-front, with no proding from the prospective customer. Of course the mark-up on cars is much steeper, as is the rest of the price tag, so the salesman have more room to play with.
So what's the deal on new sportbikes? What is a good compromise on price? Do most people end up having to pay MSRP + PDI + Tax to get it out the door? I'm not talking the deal of the century here, but what should you expect to pay without too much haggling, so it's both favourable to the dealer and the purchaser?
