Dealer Cost

Does anybody have any idea what the dealer cost is on a new R1? I know there HAS to be a good margin built in and I would like to try and minimize it.

Thanks.

What do you want to pay?

Just go in with a check for the amount you think it should cost (Out The Door). IF they really want your money, they will take it. If not, walk out.

I have no idea what the mark up is for the dealer.

At my dealer, they want nearly 11K after taxes, but I'm sure you could talk them down a bit.

If you are wanting to know the price that the dealer buys them for its around $7,960, that the wholesale price for a 2005 R1. Its around $6675 for a 2004 R1. This was used ones that were repoed but that should be close to what dealers pay. This was at a dealer's auction that I saw this. Most Yamahas sold for at least $1000 over the wholesale price depending on the upgrades. I hope that helps. The new R1s are the best looking bikes in my opinion. Hope you get one maybe you will have better luck than me. I got outbidded on a 2003 R6 Lim Etd. buy $100 man it sucked. It sold for $5,300 it was appraised for around $4575 it was completely stock.
