Default How much did you pay?

Hey everyone, I know this is a personal topic, and not everyone feels comfortable discussing it, but I am trying to buy a new highball, and I'm having some issues coming up with the price I'm going to pay, the dealer is giving me the ol "the sticker price is this plus freight and pdi" spiel, I did manage to get him to give me 750$ which is a factory rebate...

Anyways, how much did you guys end up paying for your bike? Tax in or plus tax, and what was the asking price?

I'm mostly interested in new victories, but wouldn't mind hearing any results...

Basically I had a deal in my mind and the moment I stepped foot into the dealership it all went out the window because I realized the bike I was interested in was $1000 more than I had planned on (flame paint is more than black and white)

You should atleast be able to get the bike with taxes, fees, etc for MSRP. If not then shop someplace else. Got my XR for about 25% off of MSRP (not including tax, tags, title) but it was a new 1 year old bike which helped my cause.

I am always happy for anyone who gets what they want IF they have the means regardless where they find it.

I'm going to try and keep this short but feel I need to say it here.

I've been blessed to be able to find and purchase 5 very nice bikes for right around $4500. That is all I can afford. I'm on #5. This is day 3 for owning it. I have over 3 and a half years of experience but this Vegas is so far the most fun I've had on a bike.

However, this evening all of that almost came to a terrible end. I turned at an intersection too early and a car going near 70 mph came with 12 inches of ending my life... my fault!

My first thought was how ironic that I finally found the last bike I will buy for a long time and now I'm dead. Then I thought how pissed my wife will be cause I'm dead and then just how happy she will be once that FAT insurance check comes in.

Anyway! Buy what you want. If the dealer sux, leave. If that one refuses to give you what you want... leave! Life can be very short!

One more thing... this was a God thing! I knew immediately He intervened. Thank you Lord!!!

To do set up they pull the plastic wrap off and they wheel it off the skid. They check to see theres oil in it and add gas.
Why should you pay freight you didn't special order it.
Be firm and ask for the 500 mile check up to be free.
There are dealers willing to work now that the 2015's are out

thanks for all the replies, Rhino, actually you had the most useful reply (not saying the rest weren't useful) while it was NOT what I WANTED to hear, it definitely gets me closer to the answer i'm looking for.

Rod, I would love to find a nice used bike that fits my needs, I WANT a new one, but I would totally settle for a year old... thing is this dealer has only sold like 6 of the bike i want... and he's the only dealer that's within about 4 hours from me, so the chances someone's going to happen to trade in, or try to sell a 2014, that is the same paint as I want, is slim to none I AM thinking about seeing if i can get the demo bike for a steal, as i'm sure they will be selling it pretty quick, they have one new, and one demo left, so they will probably wait till the new sells before they sell the demo...

TNXR, I totally agree. so the highball (in canada, with flame paint) is 14,999, plus freight pdi, ect and 12% tax.

victory canada is offering a 750$ rebate for 2014 highballs, and 5 years warranty, OR 0% financing...

the whole story is I went in, expecting it to be 14,999, and thinking i'll offer him 13,000 OTD, and go from there, but when I saw it 15,999 and asked him why, he mentioned he paint, and I realized I was wrong, then he starts bringing down the price, to 15,300 (750$ rebate) and says that's the best deal i'm going to be able to get around here, and it TOTALLY threw me off my game, and I didn't even know what to say... I kinda just sat there confused, trying to get my bearings...and I said well i'm going to need the 0% financing also, and he turns around and says "well you can't get the rebate then" with no mention of the warranty, or the extra $50 in rebates that the website is offering...

to be honest, I would be happy if I could get the bike for 260/month over 5 years, which works out to about 15600 out the door, with 0% financing, but i don't know if that's even possible now... I don't think it's THAT much to ask, is it? I mean, I have a buddy who just bought his girl a ninja 300, and paid like 700, OTD, below MSRP, so getting a bike worth more than double that for $400 below MSRP seems like I am getting ripped off, though I am getting 0% financing, which he didn't get... not to mention that in the states, the highball starts at 13500, not 14999!

the normal interest rate is 3.9% btw

Dill, that sucks man, glad you're ok! i'm buying the highball because of an accident on my old yami!

Johnny, I totally agree, i'm not so worried about getting service for free, I can change my own damn oil, pull one bolt out, and spin off a filter... done! I would much rather argue in a set of passenger pegs and seat, they want to pay cost on them, without installing, i'm happier than a pig in... well you know!

the kicker is, the 2015 model highball, there's only 1, and it's 1100 cheaper than the one I want is!

maybe I should just tell him I want a 2014 flame highball for the price of a 2015, OTD, with 0% financing...

Do you have the means to buy a used one? You can save a butt load going through a credit union; if you have those in Canada.

If you do buy new; consider getting the rebate AND getting that first 500 mile service done for free or at least for the cost of the oil and filter with the labor free. If the service dept is any good at all they will know what to look for and actually do the checks they are supposed to do. I say get the rebate because you never know if you end up trading the bike in before it's paid off or if you find you can pay it off early by paying more than the minimum payment or get a wind fall of cash somehow.

Can you buy a used bike in the USA and bring it into Canada? There's a killer Highball for sale in Indiana right now.

Bought my '12 KP new with two tone color scheme and special ordered it @ $1,500 below msrp. There was NO freight and NO fees of any kind plus I got $500 in parts for free, $250 in apparel for free and I got 5 year warranty for free. I ended up ordering over $3,000 in parts and dealer installed every bit of it without charging a dime.

Bought my '14 CCT new with the two tone color scheme at $3,000 below msrp. NO freight, NO fees of any kind and 3 year warranty for free.

From what I understand, buying a Victory in the US is not the same as buying in Canada. I hear everything is more expensive and you may not get the same type of deals we get.

Even if buying a bike in the Great White North is different than the states, you can still shop around. I don't know how many Vic dealers are up your way but were not many down in my neck of the woods when I bought mine. I went to Vics website and found every dealer within a 5 hour radius. I then started making calls and only a handful even had a XR but found 2 that wanted to deal. Drove to the closest one and after a few " I can't sell it for that" the dealer came within a few hundred off my offer. Call around, you may be surprised.
