$9500 for an ABS model is a good price. I honestly don't have a clue why everyone focuses so much on price. It's crazy. I mean, whats the big deal? Are you really going to keep wasting time trying to find a bike that is actually $9200 so you can save yourself a few hundred bucks that you're going to be financing anyways?
Shit drives me crazy. I've had people get a price from me, shop around for a month and then finally come back to me. Sorry, those rebates are good sir, it's $500 more. Then they get upset and go to the next cheapest dealer on their list and it's $500 more there too, but then they say, oh we will sell it to you for that. They get to finance and then bam, that $500 is tacked on to the back end.
Sorry, but a few hundred bucks is not worth it to me to dick around and shop so much. As long as I'm not getting screwed, I'm fine with paying whatever.
In this order, this is what is more important to me and should be to you:
1: Dealing Local. Keep that money back in your neighborhood.
2: Am I getting screwed? Nope. OK perfect
3: How am I being treated? Is the sales guy an ass or is he just winging it? How about everyone else that works there? Am I just a deal to them or a customer?
4: Is this a big named dealer that pushes out quantity than quality or is this a quality vs quantity dealer? The smaller dealers that don't push out crazy amount of deals will treat you better and if anything goes wrong, they will be more eager to make it right, because they solely rely on their reputation. If it's a big dealership, you're just a number to them
I'll pay a little extra for better service, experience, honesty and reliability in the fact they are going to be here next year for warranty work. Dealerships have to make money too. People think that there is just sooooo much markup in motorcycles. Unless you sell Harley's, there is about $1000 markup from invoice to sticker price. The more and more deals they are forced to make by bottoming out the price, the higher chance their business will fail, not afford talent and good employees to work there, including mechanics and the fact they have to make it up on another unit.
People get so damn hung up on price, it's stupid. If you aren't getting screwed, spend a little. You will need that dealer later. But if price is still your concern, go to eBay
