Default think i made a mistake today..

I was browsing through a dealer web sight at the visions. saw a sliver and black one that caught my eye (raider fan in me).went down just to look at it. nice but out of price range. naturally guy comes over and says we have this 08 premium with 1860 mi on it give to you for 14995. i asked for 7000.00 for mine after lookin at it he said he would do it. is 14999 a good price for this year of bike i asked for another 1000 of he said he couldnt do it. it rode great what a difference over my kp. but i have no payment now dont know if i want one. wife loves it.. then again when she first got on kp she loved that one too. just lookin for opinions on the price if it is a fair one or not. its got all the toys except for the gps. stereo, cruise cntrl, heated seats and grips.thanks for your input.

You didn't say whether its a vision tour or vision street.
Not having seen either bike:
His asking price of $15K is high, but the amount he's giving you in trade is equally high.
KBB lists an 06 KP at $5500 trade value...

It comes down to whether you think $8,000 plus your bike is a good deal.
You state the Vision has less than 2000 miles, that's almost new.

If it were me, I would pass. I looked at a '11 with Silver and Black with about 10k for $15k at my local. The '11 has ALL the bells and whistles, stock, such as HID light and ABS. Check on CycleTrader in your area if you really want to pick one up.

Was it MoM south?

Just saying the demo truck is coming there this week end I think. They are willing to deal anytime but really put on the dog when they have the demo truck in the lot.

Just be flexible, and give in. Let your wife win this one.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Sounds like you have already made up your mind. It is very low miles...that's a plus. The dealership near me, which says "we beat anyone's price" has a 2012 Vision leftover with all the bells and whistles for $18K. I believe the main difference between a 2008 & 2012 is the tranny. Suppose to get 5 K miles between oil changes on the 12 and only 2500 miles between changes on the 08. Not sure of the reasoning there, but the 12's and newer have helical cut gears (I think 5th and 6th but can't remember for sure) which may account for the mileage difference between oil changes. Good luck...remember....when Mama's happy.......she'll let you keep buyin' bikes!

Pop,yes it is moms south. they are not easy to deal with. the bike started off at 15999 took 1000 off and i was able to get another 500 off. i wanted 13500 they said they dont have that kind of room. which i know is crap. the only thing making this go forward is what im gettin for my bike. i really like my kp. no payments too boot but the wife want to ride to NH with me and after test riding the vision said she feels safer on that vs the kp. damn women never happy. she said the same thing about my kp with the mustang seat vs my 04 vegas with stk seat.any how thats why im up at 2 am.I have a hard tim with big decisions like this. but i can say the vision ride is very sweet.had it up to 90 with the wife on durin test ride and she never even knew it. i never hit those speeds with her on but wanted to see what it would do.not disappointed i must say.if i go through with it i wont be looking for that luggage rack to fit with mustang seat anymore.thanks for all your input guys.
