Supply and Demand. Large supply and little demand = lower prices and bargains for consumers.

Its cause so few people can actually ride these monsters. Most people are scurd, so they get more sedate yamaha's, hondas, and lolzuki's.

So because of that, not many buyers.

never had a quality problem with mine.

don't like where they've taken the design though.

the 14 is getting better in the looks department, but still has the buggly eyes and a chopped looking tail section....hoping they do something nice with it in 2012 though.

I've got 41k ALMOST trouble free miles on mine. Other than routine maintenance I've had to replace 1 regulator, which was covered under warranty.
