It's a bait and switch ad.

You = "Hi, I'm calling about the bike in the ad"
them = " Oh, come on in and take a look at it"
you = "ok"


You = "i'm here"
them = " Oh, we sold THAT bike, but we have this one and it's exactly the same but the discount price is no longer available, sign here"
you = "&%$#@!"

I got a price quote from the dealer yea its $7490.00 plus tax and license the total came to $8390.00 Still I see ads all over cycle trader for $8490.00 and thats plus all the fee's.

I've never bought a new dirtbike but if there anything like cars or used dirtbikes. The listed/MSRP price is just a starting point. That's kinda what that add seems to be. Then you take money off of that yet. IDK how negotiable or dealerships as far as new bikes go?

I wouldn't buy it if it's just on impulse, hey good deal! gotta go buy before it's gone!

sometimes you can get them to waive the fee's I've heard. Do you really need a new bike or could you get by on a 2 year older bike for $3k less?

Just some stuff to think about

How much of that extra $900 they're sticking you for is the license plate? Gotta love stealerships. :smirk:
