Cost 2013 KLR

Sticker says $6,400.

But what should I pay for a new one?

Thanks guys. I'm not opposed to used but want 2011+

My dealer and friend says that the list price is the price he can sell them for because he doesn't tack on shipping, setup, etc. They can be found on the internet for less but with travel, unstated charges, service, etc I chose to buy locally. I bought a new, in the box, 2012 for $5700 and as far as I know, the only change for 13 is the color.

Cost?

I just bought my 2013 KLR last month and choose the Solar Yellow. Cost out the door was $6500 with KLR Bags and a new helmet and gloves added in. Shopped around and couldn't find any better deal. The dealer was pretty honest and after looking around I felt that I was getting a fair deal. Love my newest bike...

Old (new) yeller looks pretty cool! The nickname bumble bee comes to mind too.

I got the batcycle ('09) fer $5500/ 6k door price with the 16t sprocket and service manual tossed in.
I didn't know they went up that much in price considering no R&D is done on these things.
They just change the paint schemes and turn the assembly line back on. LOL

Before they came in all black I blacked mine out with gloss, satin, and flat,
then used a gasrag to wipe off the fasteners and a few silver bits ti give it some killer
contrast. Did the swingarm, handlebars, peeled off the decals with the hairdryer and
sunshine making it go smoothly, did the lower forks, engine block, then silvered the fins,
etc. Still looks awesome! Ride on, brothers of the wind and dust.

The word is really getting around about the reliability, ultra low maintenance costs,
great mileage and range, and low insurance rates of a 38hp bike (or whatever it is)
and even those who ride street only are lovin' 'em too as long as they don't mind not
being able to go over 100 mph. The generation 2 rocket bike/ Euro-styling has indeed
caught on. The upright seating all day comfort has mucho advantages for us old
farts too. They look and ride wonderfully. (I only needed bigger 'glass and a better seat.)
Highway pegs on the crashbar insured that this is the last bike I'll ever own or at the
least never sell when we add another scooter to the stable.

Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeap

I'd say the reason the prices have been going up by $200 every year is the piss-poor value of the U.S. Dollar on the global market. Dollar value goes down, it takes more of them to purchase the same item...

As for the reliability, low maintenance cost, etc... That's one of the reasons my son was convinced to purchase his own KLR.

...and having a Dad who refused to cosign the loan for anything in the bullet-bike class made him look around - not that he was even considering a bullet bike... I told him a if he got a bullet bike, he'd probably end up wrecking it and in the hospital within a year - or worse. With the KLR, he can ride both on and off road, which speaks volumes for areas near his home-town where he can ride. As it is, he's stationed on Camp Pendleton, so there are dirt roads on base he can ride, and he can go visit his cousins in Ridgecrest and ride around there. Or farther up in my own home-town area of the Owens Valley / Eastern Sierra.

Well, 31 months later, I finally have my KLR. Thought I wanted newer, and sure, it would have been nice, but certainly not necessary.

Just bought a one-owner, 2006 with ~1,300 miles. A few bolt-ons, crash bars, rear brake protector, saddle bags, and a front fork bag. Its been garage stored, with a cover, and a battery tender. Not really a scratch on it.
