Bmw 1000rr

Hi Guys,

I was considering buying a new 1000RR when I heard the initial price was 13995.00. I went to the local dealer the other day and the price with extras was 19995.00 without tax, license and delivery. WTF. Looks like I will buy an older 1200S. I knew it was to good to be true.

A fully loaded S1000 with shift assist and the traction control, ABS options AND the motorsports colors is only about $16,900

Wonder where they got that number??

They likely farkled it with all kinds of extras that add to the margin. Too bad. I'm all in favor of dealers making money, but this kind of thing stinks. Without the fancy color, the bike is $16225 including the shift assist, traction control/ABS, freight, prep and everything except taxes and tags. There are dealers that have them for that price. A little shopping should turn them up pretty quickly.

Re: Bmw 1000rr

This is just that dealer trolling for suckers and looking for someone with more cash than brains.
Happens with all new vehicles and is also done sometimes by buyers flipping a new vehicle bought list to someone who wants it but can't find one at list price.

Factory list is as stated in previous replies. A little looking and patience will get you one at that price.

You do not want to buy the bike without the added electronics- without that its just a slightly more powerful Honda equivalent and the Honda is a lot cheaper. (There are low price 08s around still). With the electronics, it defines a new era in sportbikes that the Japanese will have to match once the reports start rolling in about how much easier it is to go quick using the electronic aids.

There is a car equivalent- the Nissan GTR. I've had students bring them to the track and they allow the inept to do things that would surely cause offs without the electronic intervention. The lap time reduction by the electronic alone is as much as the difference between street tires and race slicks on other vehicles! Way more sophisticated than other stuff BUT its an expensive to buy and maintain vehicle so will not be copied as much as the BMW bike will be.

I thought it would be around there. The dealer is Westside Motor Sports in Spokane. They just opened a new dealership 3 weeks ago. I am not kidding it was over 19,000.

I'd say it's worth getting a quote from Seattle or Boise, and if less leveraging that against Spokane. If they won't budge by at the other dealer, $2000 will easily cover the trip to get it.
