Default Help Me Pull The Trigger

So I see that Victory has some new deals they just announced for the 2013 and earlier models and I stop at the local dealer today. Test rode a Victory XCT (not XC) to get a feel for this bike. For a 2013 Cross Country and I can get a $2,000 rebate if I take the .9% financing that they offered me for 36 months. I have to make 12 payments at this rate before paying if off. So the ride goes from $18,999 to $16,999 for the basic gloss black.

Questions for veterans of Victory:
Will they offer better deals later this fall/winter or historically is this as good as it usually gets?

This incentive also includes 5 years unlimited miles warranty on the power train ($50 deduct after year 1).

For those that drive the XC any regrets from making this choice?

I was leaning X-roads before I saw them in person...but now I am leaning XC (not XCT).

Any help or words of wisdom from the veterans around here would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your help with this matter.

You might get a better deal later; hard to say but at $17k it's a good deal for middle of the Summer with lots of riding time left before it gets cold.

Sometimes a person can wait their life away waiting for just the right deal.

That sounds like a real good deal to me.Id be surprised if we're to do much better than that.

I made the same choice as you but on a black 2012 last October and have never regretted it. The price and warranty ii got was similar but your financing is actually better... Its a great bike that is identical to the CR but with an added fairing and stereo and the ability to add on more touring amenities in the future if you wish to swing that way. Plus its the fastest color!

http://www.kbb.com/motorcycles/victo...ryname=touring this is what is worth when you drive it out the door. It drops $3000 dollars because the 14 s just came out. BMV still will charge full price like it is new. It is a game of dice or poker. You have to make yourself happy on the deal. Today it might be a good deal and tomorrow may not. I bought mine in March and payed extra for the 5 year then in May it was the sell gimmick which came with the deal . So if you like it and can afford it go for it. Down the road on gas savings it pays for itself. Me personally have killed a lot of bugs in my area already. ha ha

A Cross Country Tour is a Cross Country with a slew of optional equipment bolted on. From a purely ""most bang for the buck" perspective, the Tour package is pretty compelling. There is the forged bars on the Base model, but I'm told they are strictly optional as of 2014. But, if the bars define the bike for you, then the argument is good for a '13 Base. Anyway Pop is pissing up a rope. A rider gets a model choice under they skin and kitchen table math means bupkus.

Of course. Depends on your detective skills and the limits you put on your search radius. There are better deals than the one you are considering right now somewhere. It's like pretty wimminz. There's always another, but the other guy always seems to get her. You have to just be in the right place at the right time to beat him to her. If you sit on the couch wishing you get wishes. You want results, shake some trees.

No. There are manufacturing and design compromises on this bike, but find one mass produced bike that doesn't have same. Apples to apples as a heavyweight V twin bagger/ tourer it is marginally superior in some categories to all the other options, clearly superior in some key categories, and only lacking in some categories that to Pop are manageable. Everybody here will sing the machines praises, me included, so you can read this bible elsewhere for that testimony. The warts are not hidden and they are pretty well vetted in other threads as well.

So, words of wisdom? No, not outta my yap. Here's a recap though. I bought in September. Unlike BBob I am all about the deal. I get a woody knowing that to date, I am not aware of anyone paying as little as I did for a new 2012 Cross Country Tour in 2012 or since for that matter. I hunted, I lurked, I turned over rocks and I decided what I would pay. What I did pay is my business but what you are considering to pay for a new Base is more than I paid for a Tour with the 5 year and a grand in parts and gear (that was the factory deal in 2012). I started the hunt in August fixed on getting a leftover and I picked a target price that I would pay. After September 1st I got serious because once you get a month with an "brrr" on the end of it dealers get incentivized to deal. Scoured the web, the rags and picked peeps brains and by the end of September I had two deals at less than my target number, one almost a thousand miles away, the other less than 500. I would have gone the 1000 miles in a heartbeat but the 500 was a better deal.

I'm going to take one more swing at this. If I could get a Tour for Base money and I didn't have a use in the world for the top box or the hard lowers and so forth, I would go with the Tour and get a feel for what that stuff sold for on the forums, and then sell it to recoup a couple ducats and buy some geegaws I did want. Because believe you me, there is more than one guy who bought a Base and then found himself wanting the Tour package.

I just paid 16500 for my black CC. I also got 3.95% from a bank for 48 months. The interest rate is really cheap that they are charging under 1 never heard of that.

I assume you mean 5 year warranty. I got a 4 yr warranty with mine, but what they offer in a deal isn't the same as those they'll sell ya. I was told I could drop another $600 or so and get the "full warranty." I declined.

I figure the base warranty should cover engine and tranny bits. Those are usually the biggies.
