I just visited a local dealer cause im lookin to buy a ninja 6r... well they have a blue one in stock which they'll sell for 9011 OTD but I really want a green one which they said they can get for 9332 OTD. They said theyd give me a 30% discount on all gear but these prices just seem kinda high, am I right or not?

any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

The bike is $8699 according to Kawasakis website so they are trying to make a nice profit off of you. If I were you I would try another dealer. And as far as gear goes shop around you might be able to find better deal elsewhere. When you buy anything from the dealer they mark the prices right up.

What's up with the 8 minute bump?

Anyway... if you can't wait, I would. It's already August, and up here we have only a few months left of riding. Hold out and get something cheap over the winter, IMO. That price maybe closer to $8K and maybe get free storage until March/April...

The price listed on kawasaki's website is the MSRP thats not what the dealer pays for it. Its only what they estimate the dealer to sell it for.The dealers price is always below MSRP and the price they quoted you i marked up. Either talk them down or walk. You can find a much better price on that bike.

a rule of thumb for buying a bike is a fair deal is the bike OUT THE DOOR for the cost of the bike on the sticker. That should include tax, title, license, doc, frieght, prep, etc. If it's a hard to get bike, expect to pay more, if it's a sales floor dud, expect to pay less.
