agree with the strength of the aud the bikes should be cheaper. i suppose there is cost in compliencing for aus licencing, plus Australia would not have the volume of bikes going through...

Yep, i know...sure profit margin is up there..no different from harley, Apple, Microsoft and others..sure we are on the wrong end of the stick...

Make sure you do your research... the dealer i bought my bike from had it marked up $1k from the list price that victory advertised in Australia, let alone the US price.

I was priced nearly $2k for the lock n ride bags, got them for $1300 at a different dealer (without any haggling, first price they gave me)... which is still ridiculously expensive to the US dealers.

Sorry i can't be help, but good luck!

The price difference is hard to justify considering we can import a bike a damn site cheaper than buying local.
Price of freight, import duties and handling costs etc still dont add up to the cost difference.
I dont begrudge a bloke/dealership making a living but!

they gotta ship em out, pay rent on premises, employ staff, all the overheads.
Brisbane dealership are a great crew with very competent mechanics.
They gotta cover costs and make a profit too.
Vic parts here are at a premium price though.
I don't ride a Victory cos I'm wealthy, I just know a great bike when I ride one!
Do all my own maintenance too.

You could come to the States and buy one and have it shipped. Cargo by ship would be $1250-$1500 USD, by AIR Freight it would be $2250-$2500 USD. Food for thought!

You would have to make sure it was either new or spotlessly cleaned though. I looked into bringing a bike to ride when we went to AU and the inspection put me off. I would be Ok if you lived there but if the bike has any soil or seeds anywhere that they can find then it is impounded and you pay rent on it and for their contractor to clean it.

Now if you live there that's one thing. You can pick it up when you get through the red tape but we were only staying 3 weeks and had something gone wrong we could have spent our entire trip waiting for the bike to clear the agricultural inspectors and never gotten to see AU.

Just something to be aware of.
