Hi everyone IM finally going to be buying the motorcycle of my dreams. I've decided to go with the peal white 2014 however i have NEVER bought a bike brand.new so i need your help! Who here in Houston will give me the best deal??? I saw someone bought one otd for 14k. IM going to be financing so i want the lowest price possible. What's an amount a dealer will sell it for and what place will give the. Best deal in Houston?
Honda on west rd or wild west Honda it stubbs? Also will they throw in free helmet and jacket? ? I see people say they're buying 13 for like 12k otd so do the dealers never tell you the lowest price i figure IM going to have to haggle? So if i do what is the lowest price i should say because if they don't sell it to me i want to be able to go to the next dealer and have them give it to me for that! Please help!

Go to Cycletrader.com and see what they are selling for nation wide. This should give you an idea on what they are going for. Since there are several Honda dealers in the Houston area, shop around to see who will give you the lowest price.

I always check out "Wild West Honda"
They seem honest and I like to see prices displayed on the bikes.
They make you aware of any specials.
After shopping around 3 of my last new purchases were at Wild West.
Going through Honda finance or a credit union seems to be best for rates.
it does not hurt to ask for extras also consider first service, shop manual , and bike accessories or store discount on a future purchase. I am not much of a haggler if I can get a pair of gloves thrown in on the already best price I'm happy.

Call me at 281-392-8850, ask for Bill in parts. I will get you with the sales manager and he will give you a quote. If your looking for the lowest price it may be difficult to also get free gear with your purchase. I can discount gear for you. What color CBR are you interested in?

I wouldn't finance a motorcycle. That is just wrong for your personal finances. You will be paying around 6.5 APR on an item that is losing value each day. Let's say that you finance at 60 months, by the time you finish paying, you'll notice that you've paid about 35% more than what the bike was originally worth, but now the bike will be about half in value. So essentially, you would be "overpaying" 85% more for the bike.

Anyways, I would suggest you:

1) Try to pay cash for a well maintained 2008 (which is essentially the same bike).

2) Buy a leftover from a dealership. I believe Stubbs had a few 2012 leftovers.

3) Check the deals up north (i.e. Dallas), as they are usually about ~500 cheaper than Houston prices.

Good luck with whatever you decide.

Meh... finance it. Odds you survive long enough to pay it off are slim riding around Houston anyways.

I don't agree^^^^

Not everyone has $14,000 laying around. I got my bike with 3.5% interest through a credit union...and put a little down to offset what that guy is talking about. You can also pay a little extra a month....

Anyway, try Wild West...they are good peeps

If anyone is getting a 13' for 12k OTD then I would imagine they are putting cash down? I have been searching for a 13' and the best deal I have found is Mancuso south and Honda of Houston. Stubbs wants more for a 12 then the others for a 13' though essentially they are the same bike.

12k out the door would be hard to beat, invoice amount on a 2013 is $12,500. We have one 2013 CBR 1000 in stock, it's the white/red/blue color. I spoke with the sales manager, he priced it at $11,999 + ttl. That price includes the rebate money Honda has on that non current unit. We do not have any 2014 models in stock.

My advice is to get a bike that's at least one year old.
Never buy a brand new bike because then you're the one taking it back to the shop every two weeks to get all those little annoying things fixed that keep going wrong.

My suggestion is to buy it but give it to me for the first year. That way you don't have to deal with all those little pains in the . I'll do it for you. Mar. 8, 2015 I'll turn the bike back over to you in better than show room condition.

I would pick up a clean 08 for $6k. Like this one:

http://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/4307204659.html

And then get one of these for $6k.

http://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/4346159219.html

Then you would have two sick bikes for the price of one. But that's just me.

Want to ride the track. I got that.

Want to ride some mx. Covered.

Trail ride. Got it.

Get some ladies to drop their drawers. Hop on the CBR.

For more info. contact Bo Burns at 281-392-8850, he is the sales manager. Sorry, I'm not in sales and don't have the answers to those questions. I think you may have better luck negotiating for the best deal in person rather than on the phone.

honda of houston powerhouse

Honda of Houston (West Rd) is a Honda Powerhouse meaning they only sell Honda products, so they will be the first to get 2014s. You'll get a better deal on a 2013

This is what I did when I bought my Kawi 300 last year .. new model and I wanted ABS so not alot around. I called all the dealers in Houston and a few in Dallas. I found the closest dealer to me and told them the lowest price I got and the matched if I came and bought the bike that day. So find the bike you want call around then get with the sales guy at dealership you want to buy at.

There were a couple dealers that were way marked up compared to the others. So not sure how they sell bikes unless they just get people who do not do their research. Do your research and you will get the best deal. It was actually kind of funny because they got the bike in a trade off with one of the other dealers who would not budge on the price lol.

That's a pretty smoking deal right there:

If you're set on the '14 I'd check with Wild West on what they can do on one once they come in.
However, $14k otd probably isn't realistic, regardless what some knucklehead "says" he bought his 2014 for.
These guys are in business to make a profit; they have to pay salesman, floor plan, set up techs etc., I don't imagine you work for free either.
Bo will make you a good deal on the bike and you'll begin to establish a relationship with a good dealership.
My 2 cents, ymmv.
