BMW routinely offers discounts for cash on the barrelhead. Of course, all this really means is that their financed price is inflated by a grand or two, but at least they're willing to play ball.

How about the tank top, shower shoes and (most importantly) the color-coordinated, aerodynamic arm chaps?

The last New bike I bought with a personal check. I walked in to the multi-dealer told the salesman which bike I wanted and what I was willing to pay (out to door, they could back all the numbers out themselves). Got decent enough treatment, but this was 12 years ago, so the financing pressure might not have been as high. Plus I was taking a last year bike off their hands.

Ive purchased BMW, Honda, HD, Kawasaki, and Yamaha. The only one to require down payment was Triumph, when I tried to buy a Sprint, and HD. When triumph required 20% down, I went the same day and purchased a VFR, no down, reasonable rate, delivered to my door. Its all in the dealer. My BMW and HOnda dealers provide the best service, including pick up and delivery because I live in a remote area and cant always get to them. Harley almost always requires 20% regardless of dealer.

I bought a ZRX1200R a couple of years ago. Not only did the dealer match the "best" price I could find, he also talked me into the 6 months same as cash. If memory serves me correct, that 7th month was a real eye opening interest rate.

I took the bike on a hand shake and paid my tab in full during the fifth month with the check I was ready to give him the day I picked up the bike.



As far as credit cards go; if you have the visa/mc logo on your door, expect people to pay with a form of currency you are advertising you accept. The only time I put a bike on a card, I offered to pay an extra .75% due to the 1.5% he claimed visa charged for a transaction. (Done deal)

Are you at Bert's? I'll be purchasing a motorcycle within the next few months (hopefully). I appreciate customer service more than anything, so when I am ready to pony up I'll keep you in mind. Let me know where I can look you up.
