DXKLR, thats a good price no doubt, but by no means dealer pricing. Dealers get these in for about 1k under what you see advertised. i got my 07 for 4497+tax, back in february.
Tom, if that price includes registration, tax, title, inspection, ect..than its pretty good.
I've spoken with 3 dealers two by phone(200miles away) and 1 locally and they aren't going any lower than $4900 I guess I'll call a few more and/or wait a bit longer.I dont think 4500 is too hard to do, just bargain a little. You have to really be willing to give up on a deal. If you say you'll take it right now for 4500, no more, than be willing to walk out when he offers you 4599.
Now that dealers are getting 2008's delivered this week, (my local dealer got 6 of them today) the price of the 07's isn't quite as nice as it was a month ago..
But I'm cheap.. I found a 2 year old KLR with 1300 miles on it for $1800 less than new.. :16a:
4900 OTD...or before tax, title, reg. Theres a big difference. If its OTD then thats a fairly decent price, otherwise dont touch it. http://www.powersportsnetwork.com/enthusiasts/pre_owned_detail.asp?PreOwnedVehicleCode=547998&ManufacturerCode=3&VehicleCategoryCode=1&PriceFrom=0&PriceThru=4500&ModelYearFrom=2007&ModelYearThru=2007&DealerState=XX&type=3&piconly=y
Powersports network has dealers country wide, and i found my dealer here. This is just an example, there were many more on the site. But for instance this one is a new 07, 4400, figure in shipping, tax/title in your state...probably 4800-4900.
Another one $4000, http://www.powersportsnetwork.com/enthusiasts/pre_owned_detail.asp?PreOwnedVehicleCode=540964&ManufacturerCode=3&VehicleCategoryCode=1&PriceFrom=0&PriceThru=4500&ModelYearFrom=2007&ModelYearThru=2007&DealerState=XX&type=3&piconly=y
Just gotta look some more. Murphys law, once you buy a bike, within 2 days a better deal will come along.
5200 OTD on an 08 is pretty good, but that guy was really yanking yer chain. When you call in a week he will say he doesnt remember you, yada yada. 4891 OTD for an 07 isnt terrible but as Richard pointed out, theres better deals to be found. What you should have done is ask to put a deposit on the 08, if he didnt offer or wouldnt do it when asked, he not going to give you that price. 08's are brand new, only a few weeks out, he could easily sell them at regular price.
The 08's are cool but honestly i would recommend an 07. They look meaner and theres no verdict on the new ones yet. Keep looking.
