where to buy a crated new bike for out of state shipment

8 posts in this topic

Hey guys - I'm looking to get one of the new TT-R110E's for my wife, but the Yamaha dealers in Hawaii all get their bikes from the same distributer, who in turn get their Yamahas directly from Japan.

apparently the new 110's are made in the usa, and none of the local dealers can get them here!

Can you guys help me find a dealer (preferrably California or at least west coast) that sells new bikes still in the crate, and that do out of state sales. Hopefully a discount dealer to help offset the shipping costs to Hawaii

thanks

did not know any manufacture would sell a crated bike because of liability issues,you put it together and front wheel falls off,get hurt,sue dealer.I do know some dealers that will assemble for check list, re-crate and ship. good luck

Some dealers will simply sign the check list and have you initial it. Do not ask me how I know.....

it's weird here how they can't get certain bikes. No TT-R125's or Rhinos over here either!
