I know I won't be able to ride it much this year either. But I couldn't wait for the second shipment. Also the price might go up in the spring.I have never purchased anything from DGY, but I went there in 2011 to buy a brand new CBR600RR. The guy who met me at the door was so rude that I decided to go look elsewhere. I am going to go checkout FZ-09 this weekend. Still not sure if I get it now or wait till the Spring. I love the bike so much, but honestly, I don't think I will be able to ride it much until next April.
very good point. For some reason dealers are willing to make deals on this bike now, but with demand building over the winter, I'm guessing that will be less likely come good weather...I know I won't be able to ride it much this year either. But I couldn't wait for the second shipment. Also the price might go up in the spring.
So I called my insurance company to see how much additional FZ-09 would cost me in addition to my Scrambler. They (Progressive) didn't have FZ-09 in their system and obviously I didn't have the VIN number of the bike, as I don't have one yet, but they gave me whopping $1512 quote for full coverage on FZ-09. The full covergage on my Scrambler is roughly ~1/5th of that and it is a more expensive bike. I love the FZ-09, but I don't think I can justify to pay more amout for insurance on it than what I pay for full coverage on my car. So long for owning a Hooligan Bike. :blue:I doubt that prices will go up. We are talking about motorcycles here. This is a new bike and the price is excellent, but it is hard to sell these bikes at MSRP. I bet you a lot of these will be available as used bikes for around $6K in the summer of 2014. Motorcycles are fun but most people get bored with it in a season or two. That being said, I am totally in love with this bike and if I get a good deal and my desired color, blazing orange, I will pull a triger on one.
