It's all well and good for Yamaha to offer lower rate financing, until the day they end up like GM - offering the employee discount, plus cash back, plus triple rebates, plus anything else you can possibly come up with; just so they can move the crap. But I do agree with Seruzawa - about the FZ6 not selling very well, anyway. I thought the R1 was the best selling bike in the UK, or at least the best selling literbike, or something... Maybe I'm confused.

Are the early 80's repeating? All signs point to "probably". There is a glut of motorcycles now. The barely used bikes are substantially less than the new ones so these "creative" financing rates on new bikes are springing up all over the place. Let's hope somebody doesn't do a repeat of what they did in the 80's and get the prez to slap a tariff of foreign bikes. If bikes get cheaper, rest assured I will buy more frequently.

more like a glut of cheap money thanks to the wizard Greenspan and his magic printing press. might as well take advantage if you want a new bike. I get credit card deals in the mail every week 0% for a year! Use this check to buy whatever u want and 1.9% until balance is paid in full! leverage is good when it's cheap. Y not? It can't last much longer. Oh no...

If anything it's the Japanese and Europeans who need protection from Harley. Oh wait. They already have large tariffs on imports to Japan, England and Germany..... never mind.



The worst nightmare for the Japanese is that we would treat their exports exactly the way they treat ours. How about requiring that every Japanese car be dismantled and inspected before it could be sold? Wouldn't that be interesting?
