EX IMPORT CYCLES

Just got off the phone with Ex Import Cycles off of 59S. They have a 06 kawasaki 650R there and they only want 7995 for it. WAT a TOTAL FREAKIN RIP OFF ..........I love the fact that they want 8k for a used bike with no MODS when the 07 model MSRPs for 6399.........thanks for the advice to stay away from them, what a load of S***

i knew they were a joke when the pointed me to used ducati 748 as my first bike.

even when i told him i had no riding experience he said no it's ok. Then he went on about "I will show you in the parking lot."

I went there too since it looked like they had a large selection of bikes. They wanted $7900 for an 04 GSXR600. That's probably their standard price for any 600 they have no matter what year. Will not go back ever again.

Sadly enough, I have been employed by eximports before. VERY briefly, but still, I worked there. Yes $7995 is the standard price for a 600. It doesnt matter if there are 2 identical r6 next to each other, one with 15k miles, one with a hundred miles, they are both gonna start at $7995.

Fabian is a really nice guy, and will honor warranties and sometimes even go a little further to make a customer happy. He's just EXTREMELY business savvy and doesnt fool around with money.

Carlos is a decent guy too, but only when he has to be, or occasionally wants to be. I give the guy credit though, he is absurdly busy all the time.

The salesman are idiots though. Allen and Alain are brothers, and speak questionable english, and think they are gods. They sell by pressure. They suck at remembering anything but engine size, and are only capable of building the bike up to the potential buyer by saying generic BS like, "O man, that bike is so fast, you dont even know." Other than that they just hound you and hound you to fill out a credit report. Seriously people end up leaving that place with motorcycles they really didnt want. There is one cool salesman named Mark there though. He's patient and understanding, and he is well aware of the BS prices and will try to get it low as he can for you.

Thats my $.02

i went in there last year (2006) and saw a 2000 929 for $8k. rough stator cover, missing paint. looked really rough. so i was just kinda browsing, and one of the sales guys starts telling me how he can beat me all over the street, all over the track, and all over the dirt cuz he only rides and collects hayabusas...he proceeded to tell me about all his bikes being lowered and stretched, dipped in chrome, and how he wants to mount a screen for his dvd player...i hope he doesn't post here, cuz i thought he was the biggest idiot, with the worst methods of ever selling anything...once again reiterated one reason why i hate stealerships...

They sell to people who can't get a bike any other way.
