If that is his "asking" price, try to talk him down a few hundred. It is winter and sales (motorcycle) always get slow this time if year.

I think you have room for negotiation here... especially because it is winter as Morley mentioned. If you are trading in at the dealership be sure to NOT mention you have a trade-in, then negotiate the price of the used bike, and only then do you get a bid for your trade-in. Your money just might go a little further that way.

if you have the time, try sell your bike privately, you will get more for it than what the dealer will give you for it, lots of magazines and newspapers you can put it in for a minimal cost. I got an extra $1800 for mine selling it privately than what the dealer was going to give me as a trade in

Not a bad price, but you could probably get it $200-400 cheaper bargaining with the dealer.

Do you need any new gear... "gee, it would be nice for my gear to be upgraded to match the bike..."
