Hi everyone,
I've decided to buy a 2001 yz426 when they arrive at the local dealers. I know the Manufacturer's Sugg. Retail Price is $5,999. My question is....what can I expect to pay total (w/o tax)? or what price would be generally be considered a good deal? This is my first new bike and I have no idea if there is any room to deal on this model.
Thanks,
Mike

Mike- I heard the dealer price for the 00's was $4900, I got mine in June for $5100 but the dealer wanted to get rid of it bad and I haven't heard of anybody else getting one this low...

Hey Mike,

When I purchased my 2000 YZ426F from my local dealer, I paid $ 4995.00 for her. There is a lot of room to play with. It depends on how your dealer reacts. I had the same situation too. My dealer was "hot" to sell the 2000 model, so this may of come into play.

I tried to find a price guide of sorts on the internet, or the book stores on motorcycles, and dirtbikes. All I came up with were sites with MSRP. My suggestion: Listen to the experienced riders who respond here. I've learned so much in the past 3 days, its incredible.

Despite, what others may say about me in my forumns, I do enjoy the thumper. She's a trick to ride.

Best Wishes!

Randy

Wow,
Mikeok and YZkicks, I had no idea one could possibly be had for those prices! My local dealer still has a 99 yz400 and they're asking 5300.00 for it!! I guess thats why its still there. I'll be real happy if I can get one for 5700.00. Thanks alot for the information...hopefully you'll be hearing positive comments from me in the near future.
Mike

I got my 2000 426 for $5199. Obviously, I didn't do as well as some but I hear I did better than most.

Wow, you guys did very well!! There were a shortage (still is) of 426's in the entire northern Ill area and I drove to Indiana 4 hours away to pick mine up for $5400 out the door. Since I was from out of state, I did not have to pay sales tax. Around here I could not have touched one for under $6300 with tax. List price was what most dealers were looking to get because they knew they could get it. Good luck!!

Hey You all,
I got my hands on the last one shipped to Sweden and I had to pay 55.000 Sek (about 5.612 USD).
And that is cash payment without trade.
I belive that both bikes and aftermarket details are a bit cheaper in the states.
What about the rest of Europe anyone ?!?!

Guess we got it pretty good up here in canada.
I got my 00 426 for 6300 bux.

Thats about $4200 american.
If your near the border it might be worth while to buy one in Canada.

Yo flying- one thing I failed to mention about the 5100$ price I got for mine. I had been into this shop for about 2 months fairly regularly buying parts for a YZ250 I'd been re-building and the first time I asked him about the price it was a solid 5800. I tried to act uninterested until I had let it set and until I had the cash, and by then when we knew each other on a first name basis so we made the deal. On one of these forums someone posted that the dealer price was $4900 but who knows how reliable that info is. Also I would expect to pay more for the new model year, I got mine in June about the time the '01 news was being released...

Mike
