Default What kind of discounting on brand new Victory bikes?

I am looking very seriously at used Victory bikes right now, but my wife suggested I should at least check out what kind of deals might be available on new ones, since the bike market has been so depressed compared to the past, and a new bike comes with zero miles and a warranty.

On a new bike, I'd have to lower my expectations from a used Jackpot or Jackpot Ness to a new Vegas 8-Ball or another 8-Ball model close in price to a Vegas 8-Ball.

So, to any of you who have recently bought or priced one of these, what kind of deals are available right now?

Might try cycletrader.com and put in new 2013 models, then email some of the dealers.

Right now.....not that great.

In October when I bought mine they were offering $2k rebate and 5 year extended warranty on all 2013 models. Then they gave another $1k for law enforcement discount. $3k and warranty off a new bike - yeah - good deal.

November it dropped to $1k rebate, no warranty and no law enforcement discount.

If your not in a hurry watch the monthly rebates.....they change every month and sometimes significantly.

Do a Craigslist search my driving distance (I use SearchTempest) - when I was looking I found all kinds of great deals by dealers if I was willing to drive a couple hours.....and I was. However I had a trade and it would have been time consuming and complicated to work the logistics of that out.....I got a fair deal from my local dealer and went that route.

Up to $1500 off 2013 models and 3 year extended warranty for Feburary.

They did bring back the military and law enforcement/fire fighter discount of $1000.

Yes, too high compared to what I am seeing in multiple geographic locations.

The going asking prices for '07 or '08 Ness versions appears to be $10,000, and of course the negotiability varies by seller's character and circumstances. For some reason, most seem to have approx 10,000 miles on them - the vast majority.

The going asking prices for '07 or '08 Jackpots has more variability but seems to run $7000 to $8300. Here, the miles on them seem to be either way lower - typically 5000 to 6000, or way higher at 20,000+.

I'm seeing on eBay closed auctions that very few actually sell, and am seeing that in the ones that I am visiting locally. Most have been on th market for months, not just weeks.

I encountered that too on selling my own 2002 Honda VTX 1800R. It took from October to mid February, but I lowered the price a LOT at end of January, and then the first buyer who showed up bought it after just 20 minutes.

The more costly a used bike is, the harder it is for a private seller to sell it, since most buyers don't have more than $1500 to $2500 in cash, and a buyer who needs financing for the balance must himself arrange that financing without the aid of an experienced finance manager at a dealership. Also, many used bikes still have liens on them. If the lien is with an out-of-town bank, the necessary 3-way meeting with bank, seller, and buyer, to pass the cash and transfer the title is almost impossible to do. Finally, banks become much less willing to do a bike loan as the age of the bike increases, and loans on 6, 7, or 8 year old bikes are pretty much impossible unless the buyer has a strong relationship with a local bank and great credit.

This is why many sellers just end up trading their bike in on a new one, as the dealer enables them to convert their old bike into cash instantly via the trade, although they take a big hit on the selling price - the trade-in price offered is very much lower than what a "retail" sale to an actual buyer would produce. But, this way even a seller who is "upside down" (owes more than the bike is worth), can get a deal made, even if it results in a larger than normal payment on the new bike since the deficiency in value of the old bike versus amount owed on the bike needs to be rolled into the loan. A substantial down payment is sometimes required in addition to the trade-in for that reason.

I just bought a 2014 Cross Country 8 Ball. I ended up getting it for $500 under msrp. The dealer wouldnt budge much from there. I did get the $1000 rebate for being a fireman.
