Question For Australian Victory Motorcycle dealers

Can you give me the Full Breakdown costs of a Cross Road motorcycle. If it cost's $14,495 in the states, and when you buy the same bike in Australia it can cost $23,000 to $26,995 and higher depending on where you go. John.

John,
If you can't get a response here try emailing them directly and/or posting on their FaceBook page (assuming FB works upside down too).

If they provide the information please post it on here as the curious would really like to know if it's simply greed or the additional $$ can be justified.

I've read that a steering head lock is required in Australia. Perhaps a kill switch on the side stand as well? Those two items alone could add up to a hundred bucks or so... It would be hard to believe that the U.S. dollar would be worth much on the international market, so I don't think the exchange rate would fully explain the difference. I suppose transportation costs add a bit. However the price difference you are describing is hard to imagine. Do Harleys have a similar markup in Australia?

The shipping company i contacted said that you have to apply for an import permit before you try shipping the motorcycle. So possibly they might take the value of the motorcycle and tax the hel out of it.

2012 hard ball.

It would seam that there is no honest dealer's in Australia, In 40 year's of Ridding and buying Motorcycles in Australia I have never found a dealer that put a customer First before profit, sad to say!
