Agreed that you can find a deal on a Goldwing. But not here in Dallas. I had to drive 400 miles to save $3,500 on my '07. Local dealers would only come off $500 on MSRP.But that is negotiable..(it seems about $4K)..which would put the comparably equipped Wing $3K less than the Beemer.
This was a problem? With that much savings it would be worth it to fly 3500 miles, first class - and ride the bike home.Agreed that you can find a deal on a Goldwing. But not here in Dallas. I had to drive 400 miles to save $3,500 on my '07. Local dealers would only come off $500 on MSRP.
makes me think the '12 was probably a base model.I was just at the local Honda shop this morning picking up a throttle cable for my kids dirtbike. They had a red 2012 sitting at the front door and the owner jokingly told me that he had ordered the bike for me. He told me that he'd let me have it for about $500 over what I had just given him 2 months ago on a 2010 Level III Titanium that I got a good deal on.
I'm saturated with bikes at the moment but it certainly caught my ear.
Not to me they wont.Why would they budge a penny, they will sell everyone they can make at that price.....
a> most are broken down and sitting in a shop or a garageEver wonder why there are never any 2, 3, 4, or 5 year old non-crurrent brand new BMW bikes at the dealers.........????
In this case - it's certainly a lot less bike for a lot more money. Just because it has 6 cylinders and a nav doesn't put it anywhere close to the same ballfield as a Wing.I suspect it's a case of getting what you pay for.
They have them sitting on the floor and in crates here in Chicago.The BMW dealer that my buddy goes to told him all the new 1600's that they can get are sold. You cannot get one unless your name was on the pre order list.
Since Navi is a dealer option on the Beemer, there really is no comparable bike. You can get a base Wing for $23K and the only thing you wouldn't have is the ABS. And you can probably get that base model for $20K.
