This is an update to the thread about Paying MSRP for your new bike. I have a friend that is the General Manager of a Motorcycle dealership in the state of Florida, although it's not a Yamaha dealership. I asked him if there was a law in the state of Florida regarding freight and setup fees, and how they are applied in regard to purchasing a motorcycle. THERE IS NO SUCH LAW! So, if your Florida dealer says that there is, THEY ARE LYING TO YOU. What this means to YOU is that you can try and negotiate the fees that they charge for freight and setup and if they tell you that EVERYONE is charged the same fees, it simply is NOT TRUE. That would be, at least for me, a time to change dealers and find one that will be honest with you. Hope this helps some of you Florida guys/gals/whoever, that is trying to buy a motorcycle in the state.

You're welcome and I hope it helps you on your bargaining power. I absolutely HATE dealers/salespeople that lie to potential customers. Many folks on here have bought their FZ09's at MSRP and below. Some have had the freight and setup completely waived or reduced to almost nothing. Good Luck and let us know how it goes.

Hi All;
I just purchased an orange one from Westfield Yamaha in Indiana for 7936.00 out the door with the tax 501.00 and 40.00 license and documentation 98.00 included.. I drove over to get it. I live in Iowa. What a great dealership.:)

Thanks

Hello everyone. Just joined the Forum and wanted to let all you guys know, or your friends that If you are around the Akron/Canton area of Ohio, that Rick Roush Motorsports and Yamaha of Warren are pretty nice people. Just purchased my 2014 Fz-09 Graphite for $7900 OUT THE DOOR. I was super excited after reading all the posts on prices. They will work with you and I know Rick Roush has plenty in stock. I am super excited to read all the information on this thread about this awesome bike and I cannot wait to pick it up either tomorrow or Wednesday! Good day everyone!

Erich

I haven't found any 'deals' in FL, and do not like spending hours negotiating. On my way up to GA today for a job, I stopped by a dealer who has the FZ-09 priced at $6900, or about $8100 OTD. As others have said, the bike looks much more substantial and pronounced in person, I love it. Feels great ergonomically. I'll be here for two weeks and think I should probably take it home with me...

Quote in hand from Southern Az area- $9987 with a $500 discount, total OTD $9487. List at $7990. 2 dealerships in town, same outfit. One had swarming ant sales geeks, other, more relaxed but very little bike knowledge. Will try other shops in Sierra Vista, Phoenix, Yuma, possibly New Mexico if cash can't get the price down.

Put a $500 down payment on a fast orange one at Mukwonago Yamaha here in WI. $7800 and change due at delivery in a couple of weeks. Port Washington Yamaha had bikes in stock , basically same price of ~$8350 OTD but they're much further away. Worth the $50 to buy from my "local" dealership.

I'm pretty sure you can grab one in Chandler AZ at Ridenow for $8500 or so out the door. I refuse to pay a penny more than that and they committed that price to me a while back so I could plan accordingly on my finances.

Anybody has info on getting a good price in New Jersey ?
Couple dealers I checked with do not have them. It's hard to work any deal on hot bike they can't keep in stock ...
