Yet another reason America is better than Canadia! It looks like our brethren to the North will have wallets about $1000 lite once they swing their legs over the newest powerhouse from the Tuning Fork Company. According to the Canadian Yamaha website, the 2014 Yamaha FZ-09 is listed at $8,999.00 with a giant asterisk next to it leading you to the fine print at the bottom that states, "* MSRP does not include freight, PDI (Pre Delivery Inspection), pre-rigging (boats), or taxes. Dealer may sell for less. See your local dealer for out the door pricing."

I guess it pays to spell things correctly and to not have the "Eh" as punctuation for your spoken thoughts. I always thought it did, but now I am able to put an actual dollar amount on it. That dollar amount is $1000! With that $1000, I am going to put an exhaust and a tuner on my new FZ-09, and I dont feel bad about it because when I zip on down to downtown Toronto and spank anyone riding the same bike, I have the exact same number of dollars into my bike as they do... #winning.

lol, isn't everything more expensive up there? However if it's listed in CAD instead of USD it's not really that much more.

9,000.00 CAD = 8,678.22 USD

Also have higher wages, universal health care and a raft of other benefits that make a few hundred dollars extra not sting so much. Each to their own.
LOL, exactly.
I'm surprised by the anti-Canada sentiment in the initial post of this thread.
The whole "America is the best and Canada can go screw itself for no good reason other than America is #1 and that's the way it is" attitude is stupid and immature.
America is NOT the best, in anything anymore really, so try being humble once in a while NJ.
Not bashing America here, just one ignorant American.

Cheers!

In Canada the MSRP is 8999 $ and depending of provinces (Quebec have 15 % tax) 8999 x 15% = 10349 $. I don’t know for you in USA. (Depending the tax of each state).

$8999 is in Canadian dollars. Do the math. It works out to be about the same as $7990 USD, more or less.

You think this expensive you should see how Quebec in particular screws bikers on the cost of motorcycles.... used harley's for example sell for more than if you were to buy the same bike new in the states. (i.e. 883 or 1200 sportster forty-eight). That being said, I have seen the FZ 09 for as low as 7 grand out the door in the USA (via fleabay) which makes it worth a Canuck's time and effort to go down and pick one up there even with import and taxes added.

Doubt that $7k is a new FZ-09......sounds like BS, no offense.

I'll just go down to the hospital and get some free Health care for my hurt feelings.
