Exclamation Could they really run out!!! Or is it all just bull?

Went to look at bikes a few days ago and asked a sales guy if they had any of the blue zx6r's in stock. (the one they had on display had a Two Brothers exhaust already on it, compliments
of the service department, and was way over MSRP because of this little "addition".) He said they didn't have any there but they could find me one. What made my heart jump into my throat was when he said that at some point it may be IMPOSSIBLE to find anymore blue ones!! So now i'm wondering if i should hurry up and get one before they become "extinct." could they really be gone before the end of the year, or are they just trying to make a quick sale?

Sounds like they want to make a sale. You shouldn't have let them know that color is important.

You should never let them know anything. Ever. Period. You're just turning the bargaining tables against yourself.

OK, listen good, that sounds like typical dealership BS designed to get people to say EXACTLY what you're thinking, "So now i'm wondering if i should hurry up...", yeah, and wouldn't you believe, they've got the ONLY one, what a coincidence....

I'm with moto850, call around...

It may sound crazy, but it's true. Call around. You'll see. When my roommate was buying his bike, he was deadset on getting the blue and black gixxer 750. well they only make so many 05 750's in that color scheme. And of course they look pimp as hell. So, he went into the dealer, and asked about it. Guy said he didn't have any, but could probably get one. Called back a day later and said. Can't find any locally, I'll call and see if there are any in th COUNTRY. He called back. there were 6 left. IN THE COUNTRY. Said there was one in Michigan that he could get. Would take about 2 - 3 weeks though. Pissed off and in a hurry to get a bike, he settle for the blue and white.

Moral of the story, if the guy says they're gettin low. He might not be full of shit. Call around for sure. But you might be supprised what you find out.
