Please be prepared to walk away. I purchased mine in the begining of July, $14400 was the price, brand new with Security and ABS. This was before the new release and price drop. Please be prepared to walk away.:deal:18K for an F with 14K miles on it are you kidding, run away from that place. Like the above mentioned its a buyers market, deal and deal with them and be prepared just to walk away there are lots of dealers out there.
I think you meant " Bruce Rossmeyer's "I'm headed to Bruce Meyer's HD in Ft. Lauderdale either today or tomorrow. They advertise as the largest inventory of motorcycles in the world. But on their website they have a grand total of 1 muscle advertised and its a used 2009 with 14,000 miles for $17,999. I went by another HD dealer in Miami yesterday and they didn't even have 1 new or used muscle. I would love to find these dealerships selling muscles for $14,000. If anyone knows of anything in south east Florida please let me know.
You are correct. I'm just sold my GSXR 1000 and thinking about switching to a Harley so forgive me but I'm a bit of a newbie.I think you meant " Bruce Rossmeyer's "
Usually if they don't have it, they can find it. FWIW they might be known for having the most, but maybe not always the cheapest.
:them:I would offer them 10K for the used one. See if they bite. But with 14K on the odometer, not happy with that one. Is 14K out the door or before tax and tags? Know this, if you buy it for 14K, you may get lucky and sell it for 9K. That is five grand up in smoke, get a great price on the used one or consider getting a new one.
On the new one (2011), shop around to other dealerships to see. But wait until they are in stock. You won't get a discount (normally) when ordering from the factory. Best time to shop is towards the end of the month before the dealership needs to pay that loan on inventory (yes they finance also) on the bikes in stock. At this time they are more committed to volume but they are always happy to rip you off.
Bargains on 2011s right now will be hard because of the price drop. Availability on 2009 and 2010 is limited since they had that 1% financing last month and inventory was thinned out. If you paid MSRP within the last two months, hopefully you could take advantage of the financing. Never pay MSRP. If the deal is not there, move on.
Be patient, it may be a bit before you get a good deal on a new one. If you need one now, you would be better buying a used one outside the dealership as long (and this is a must) the price is right. We shall see how long it takes for the dealerships to drop prices on the leftovers (not many remain). Let us know how it goes and wish you the best.
