Looks like a "DEAL" isnt really a deal

# Thread: Looks like a "DEAL" isnt really a deal

1. ## Looks like a "DEAL" isnt really a deal

My friend just purchased a 2008 r6 at the bike show. the price of these bikes is \$12000 *note MSRP is \$12500. But at the bike show it was discounted 1000 (the deal). At the end of it all, he ended up paying 11720 inc his down payment of 500 for it, inc tax

12000-1000-500 (dp) = 10500 + tax = \$11720

But the MSRP of a 2008 r6 in the states is just \$9300 thats a 1700 dollar difference just off the bat and thats using msrp price. So im sure you can grind the dealer down to 9000 at least!!

so 9000 + import bs \$500 + tax = \$10640 thats enought left over for a full system!!
hmmmm thoughts.....

3. Sounds about right for pricing up here. A friend of mine paid around \$11,300 for his in Oct last year. Plus the bike came with a 2 yr warranty

4. uh... if the price of the bike here in canada was \$10,500 before tax and in the US it's \$9300 before tax, that's only a \$1200 difference (not a \$1700)...

You still have to pay PST + GST when you import, plus the associated fees etc.

I'd say your friend did very well and that price is extremely close to the US costs.

It's hardly worth \$1000 of your time to go through the import process IMHO

5. I don't really understand your equation G-slide. (12000-1000-500 (dp) = 10500 + tax = \$11720). When you come up with the final price \$11720 (which btw should be 11760 at 12&#37; tax) you subtracted the \$500 dp to get this number. But doesn't the dp count towards the total cost of the bike? Correct me if i'm wrong but shouldn't it be: 12000-1000 = 11000 + tax = 12320 - 500 (dp) = \$11820 <-(still owing on the bike)
Whereas the 12320 is the total cost of the bike, and this number should be the one compared to the cost of importing from the US

6. My time is worth a lot more than \$1000 for dicking around with importing.

High dollar bikes like a ducati or harley maybe, or with a car where you are saving thousands, not a few hundred dollars

7. Yami-BMW in Richmond had some left over 2007 bikes discounted for 9999\$. They also offered the 1000\$ Yamaha rebate. So basically you get a brand-new 2007 R6 for 8999\$. Sounds like a hell of good deal to me. No hassle with warranty and import-BS.

8. agreed! Too bad other OEMs arent pricing it this sharp! Score one for Yamaha!!

9. RMS has GSXR-600's for \$8999

10. Leftover Blackfoot 2007 R6 bikes are \$8999. I would have bought a 2007...

11. look like darren got it right. so thats even more savings!!

12300
10600
====
1700 thats worth the hassel!

12. Only worth it if you don't want warranty. 07 at the show for \$7699 with a slip on. Sounds like a good deal to me for a new non current.

13. ## Prices !!!!

I was at the Bike show on Friday and I overheard quite a few people argueing with Sales people and Manufacturer's rep's about priceing and warrenty's
** seems to be a real bone of Contention ** US priceing and Canadian

14. OMG, you mean you can buy stuff cheaper in the US!?!?! HUZZAH!

I totally agree. I gotta be saving at least \$3K for it to be worth it to me.

\$1000 is what, like a couple of weekends of overindulgence? I'll take the overindulgence.

15. I believe I saw the new 600rr selling at the carter booth for 9999.99.
