11,308 Euro (EUR) = 14,450.5 US Dollar (USD) . Can there be that much in profit in each bike or parts and accessories sold to dealers for each bike?
by the time they are shipped here then distributed to dealers it's probably spot on for bmw AG, Don;t forget those are the moco profits, and more than likely do not include any cost the dealer has to have to get the bike to thier door.
also don't think for one moment the dealers only make a grand or two on these bikes they couldn;t and keep thier doors open
