Honda has suggested leftover 08's sell for 6999. So it isnt as good a deal as it should be.

Is that what the dealer is paying to Honda?
I'd be surprised to see them selling for that low.
Remember, the dealer has to make money to stay in business too.

MSRP on these things is like $11,599.

true, but when they consign 20 at a time, that definently makes a difference...obviously they wouldnt get cut if they agreed to purchase one bike at a time such as a consumer, everyone has to make their dollar...

Depends! With bikes like this that the dealer can't or isn't moving, the manufacture gives them cutbacks to get ride of them. It also depends how many they sell throughout the year. The more they move the cheaper they get them usually...

don't hate on them for trying to make $. buildings don't pay for themselves.

You can get one cheaper on Ebay. Southern Honda is even giving free lifetime warranty on the engine but you have to personally go to the dealership. Some others will ship it to you. I'd buy one but it's not a priority for me right now: http://motors.shop.ebay.com/Motorcyc...c0.m282&_rdc=1
