The only way the sales people will learn is by time and embarrassment. When they quote something extremely low customers need to go with them to the sales manager. When the manager sees what kind of prices the customers are given he/she should correct the sales person on the spot. After enough times of getting told to quit f'in up they should learn or get a new job.
IMHO dealers should put prices on the bikes. I will not buy anything that is not clearly marked and I consider the tag price as a starting point for the deal.
