Default How much discounting on new XC

I know the 2012's are coming out but a few months ago I started thinking about buying a new XC. A friend of mine has a Vision and he basically told me he paid list price for it. It seems our local IL dealer does not discount.

I said that is crazy, I have surfed the net and seen some dealers discounting (mostly in OH). Maybe 1k to 1.5k but also lot that just show list (I know you negotiate from that). So, do these Victory dealers discount or will I be at the disadvantage of supply and demand???

Thanks,
Bill

I bought a brand new XR in Jan and got a good discount on it, depends on how they move in your area. They had a bike in stock that was there for a few months that they wanted to move and made me a deal that I couldnt pass up (was just out pricing for a spring purchase, ended up buying it the next day)

got a XR with soft bags, front/rear crash, stage 1, taller windshield for 13k

this is an XR thought, which move slower then an XC, so not a great comparison i guess

How big is your dealer?
If he has a lot of bikes I would think he dose well and doesn't need to discount.
If hes small dealer then he can't afford to give up profit.
Its hard to say how much you should get off. If you buy from some one ells would he still work on it?
What ever you do get him to throw in the 500 mile check up that will save you 300 bucks. Ask for 20% of on parts he will still make 25%.
Just tell him what you'll pay with in reason and see what you come up with. Is there more then one dealer in your town and wait till the 2012 come out and see if Vic offers a deal on them.

He is a small dealer with a monopoly. I think he purposely keeps inventory low in this area so he keeps supply low. This way he can and does ask for list price with little to no negotiations.

He creates a false shortage to get a higher profit. That is why I will probably drive further to get a deal.

Caution on going too far. Search a couple of the Victory forums and see how some dealers won't do recall/warrantee work unless they sold you the bike.

I have heard of others getting as much as $4,000 off fully loaded bikes by using all the discounts available including the $1K Fuel It demo discounts as well as the $1K military discounts and any other reductions. In some cases, this may mean that you have to buy the discontinued color (crimson red in the XR) or the plain black XC at those discounts. However, many only want blue or white and therefore will end up with less discount.

I bought a '11 Ness and got significantly more than $2K off my total price. In order to get the "right price" I DID travel to where we own a vacation home.

Cobra, I am thinking you mean a 2010 but was it a XC?

If it was/is you got a great deal. I think the color XC bikes are $18,500 list so you got about 4K off list....

That is a very good deal.
