Sounds good to me but then I have a life-long history of getting screwed on car and motorcycle deals regardless of whether I'm buying or selling.:confused:

My friend bought a red CCT for around 22K w/ 3 yr warranty, no other extras. I guess it depends on the extras your getting, sometimes its cheaper to get the accessories somewhere else.

I was quoted $20k for a stock 2012 XCT w/ the standard warranty. That seems a good place to start.

I was quoted $25,865 for a 2012 Red CCT with $3,000.00 worth of accessories, installation Labor included, with a 6 year extended warranty.

Great/Good/Fair/Ok Deal?

Input welcome.

I do intend to ask for a free 500 mile service and a free manual.
Where are you located?

Can you turn a wrench?

Do you have a place to work on your bike and do you plan on working on it yourself at all or just let the shop do everything?

If you aren't financing; there are near new XCT's for sale and you could save up to $7k compared to the price you were quoted.

Is money an object for you? Are you willing to learn how to work on your bike at all?

I read earlier about someone paying $600 for the 15k mile check up without getting the fork oil changed and the neck bearings adjusted. Talk about getting reamed! Anyone with the ability to read and understand a service manual could easily have done everything that shop did and more. Plus; who's to say they actually did what they said they did? If you do it yourself; you know for sure it got done.

Sorry for the rant. It just bugs me to no end to see good people get screwed over. An oil change on a Vic is just slightly more complicated than changing a diaper on a baby except without the odor.

There's a 2012 Red XCT with clear title for sale on the xxx.net for $18.5k with 5k miles on it. The same one someone else posted a video about recently here where the owner bitches up a storm for very minor stuff. That's a $7k savings right there.

I live in Arnold, MO.

Yes, I'm a Mechanic/Electrical Technician for substations; we build, maintain and do any repairs necessary to keep that electricity flowing. I enjoy wrenching and, as you mentioned, you know it was done and performed correctly.

I prefer to purchase a new one to be honest.

I wish I had a garage but can work on it in the back yard under the , 15' x 25' overhang. Also have a shed I could possible store it in for the winter but that might be a tight squeeze.

I could pay cash, I'm also considering waiting for the 2013 since it's so close to July.

I feel that the offer is not really that good at all but it is a first offer and they may negotiate. I'm not sure how much a extended six year warranty costs.

Bike = $21,999.00
Acc. $3,000.00
Six year warranty: $1,200.00???
Labor for most of the items wouldn't be that much, maybe $500.00
Victory Discount : $500.00

Total: $26,199.00
Offer: $25,685.00
Approximately $514.00 less than MSRP or 1.96% discount, HHMMmmmm?

WAY TOO much.
5 year warranties cost the dealer around $300 & many were willing to "pass it through to secure the sale.
Others are getting the XCT's stock for $19,999
Most are getting anywhere from 20% to 30% off ANY accessories purchased at the same time as the original sale or within 30 days so that $3K retail drops to a $2,100 "value"

So, If you are willing to travel, you can buy the same thing for as little as $22,899 (if you include the $500 premium for a color other than black).

Thanks, that's what I was thinking, way to high.

Have a dealer in mind that would come close to this price?

I'm still waiting on two more quotes.

That does sound a bit high but I start getting lost with it when they start throwing all the additional stuff on. Not sure I could come up with 3k worth of options on an XCT.

There aren't any other TTL fees on top of that price is there?

Easiest way to find a deal is to simply run an online search on FleeBay, ChopperExchange, Oodle and look for dealer's deals. When I was buying mine I found one just like it for $3,500 off which included all incentives at the time plus dealer concessions. I asked a dealer at a vacation home who (just happens) to be one of Victory's largest dealer's how close they could come to that deal. They KNEW I would prefer to deal directly with them but would fly (or have the discount dealer ship it) if there were thousands of dollars in difference.

My dealer made me a competitive offer and found me a my bike. They did an AWESOME job and I would recommend them to anyone but they are not "in general" the lowest cost provider.

This is not my dealer but here is a '11 Ness like mine for that $21,500 figure ($24,999 Retail). This one is used and I know you are looking for a CCT but you could always give them a call and see what kind of price they can offer. The dealer I did my comparison with was in Colorado (at the time).

Which color? Black lists at $21,999, colors at $22,499. Color +$3k of goodies brings you to $25,499. I don't know if your quote includes tax or what your tax rate is. Here in Ohio it is ~7% depending on the county you live in. If that is the case its pretty good. Otherwise, its about retail.

Given how well these things are selling and the time of the year. I wouldn't expect them to be making in super deals. Wait until fall and you might get them to take off an extra $1500. My advice would be to just pay the money, suck it up and enjoy the summer. You won't ever be getting it back...

I'm in the same situation, just still waiting for the factory to send out the Red to the dealer (they only have a white in stock). About $500 off MSRP. I am getting the $1000 Demo day discount and I was informed that even though they are slow getting it from the factory (2 1/2 weeks and still not there) that it would still be honored.

However they aren't tacking on any of the lame freight fees, etc.

As others are assuming, is that number before taxes? Is it before any other fees?

Freight fees paid by YOU? My dealer had something like a flat paperwork and delivery fee of $189 as the only thing added to the negotiated bottom line. I can't believe that some dealer's are using the ole car dealer "destination charge" BS to wrangle a few extra $'s out of buyers.

We have heard that Polaris is running their plant to capacity (time to buy PII perhaps?)so perhaps the delay's make sense but there ARE other dealers with inventory IN STOCK. Were it me, I would ask them to "waive" that fee due to the delay inconveniences or "hint" that one may NEED to take one's buying efforts to some other dealer who has the ability to meet delivery expectations...even if one had to travel to accomplish that objective. After all, there are only so many hours in a day/summer in which to ride...

When you get your bike go into your profile and add what you bought and where you live it will help you and us out in the coming months thumb up

It's a Red XCT as noted and it was OTD but still had to pay taxes, so that was basically MSRP = Bad offer.

I just got another quote from another Dealer. At first he told me the owner doesn't do that and I would have to make an offer so I told him ok then tell him were done.

He called back within the hour and said I got him to make an offer, The Red XCT is normally $23,186.00 OTD, right with extra charges added on, and that only till Saturday they'd sell it to me for $21,256.00.

And I would have to pay for the 500 mile service, Both of these dealers are fools and I've decided to purchase a new vehicle instead of playing games with these knuckle heads.

Thanks for all the replies.

If this is how I'm treated prior to the purchase, I bet I'd be treated even better after the sale......ssssssssoooooooo long!

Confused - What is a Res XCT? Typo perhaps? Did you mean RED? OTD generally means includes ALL other charges to get the bike "out the door" which INCLUDES taxes, titles, destination and other charges...that's what OUT THE DOOR means...ALL other transactional charges including add ons, taxes, title, paperwork, etc.

Sounds like the second dealer offered you approximately $2 grand off on a new Red XCT which is generally considered pretty good these days. You mentioned $23,186 OTD . You then state that they would do that for $21,256 but you didn't include the OTD verbiage so not certain if you just missed including that as a typo here or not but if you are getting $21,256 and that INCLUDES your taxes, tag, etc then that is not a bad deal at all.

Why do you say that dealer is knuckle head? Just because they wanted you to pay for the 500 mile service? it could be as little as $70 so why is that such a "bad thing"? Maybe I am just reading your entire post incorrectly?

Yes, it was a typo, I meant Red.

I've always paid for taxes for a new vehicle or bike when I get the tag for it, don't know if you can pay for it ahead of time because for one I've never done that before and two I'm not sure if that varies from state to state, I don't see why it would matter as long as the state gets their money though.

If the first offer was with taxes paid, then that makes it a much better offer.

$21,256.00, He did not state OTD, my typo stating $23,186 OTD

I called them knuckle heads because they never got back to me, I had to call them both back after a week to get them to quote me a price, you would think they would be a little more responsive than that. And the fact that the second Dealer stated they wouldn't quote me a price.....Huh? But an hour later they called me back and did only becuase I told them were done then, that's playing games to me!

They don't seem to be to interested in making a sale. Also the second Dealer never quoted me a price on the $3,000.00 worth of accessories that I inquired about either?
