Leftovers from the year before...i paid $7200 for my 05 636 brand new from a dealership. My last 3 bikes have been leftovers. If you want new? If not there are always great deals on used bikes if you just do some work to find them.

I bought a new bike in April of this year. It was a 2013. I called every dealer in a 250 mile radius and got a quote (if they would give one over the phone). If they would not just scratched them off the list to even consider buying from.

Once I had all my prices .. I called the closest dealer and told them .. this is the best price I found .. can ya beat it. They did and I bought the bike. Now I paid cash but I would not tell them you are financing until you get a number. I know people think this is deceiving but I firmly believe they will boost the number because paying something over time people will tend not to have as much "sticker shock" than if paying cash and unassing all that money.

Good luck on the purchase and dont be against a drive to Dallas or a little further to save a couple thousand cause it could happen. Try to support the local dealers first but if they are not willing to deal then you gotta go where the best price is. Cycle Trader will give you a good list of dealers in the range you choose.

Also ... on Cycle Trader .. put in 2012 you will see some dealers still have them new and making deals to get rid of the inventory.

I did the same thing and drove to Dallas. The dealers over there were willing to negotiate unlike here in Houston.

I bet you could get it lower, Its almost 3 years old. Worth a shot though. Money def talks.
