I found my 2007 Hammer S still new at a dealer about three weeks ago. When I went in to sign the papers they also had a 2007 Hammer premium that has never even had a battery in it. I just told the salesman today that I would take it also. I am not really worried about resale, and I will get two Hammers for a little more than the price of one 2012 S. I really like the S (see avatar). I am new to street bikes (motocross is what I love but it is starting to hurt me - age 43).
Out the door for $12k on both. I thought we might get premium cheaper but, I gave in. I know the dealer took a beating after 6 years. hammer S list was$20499 with pipes added ,premium was $19400. By the time you add in taxes, shipping, and paperwork fees, I am close to half for each bike. I feel lucky.
