Time to buy another bike need help

Hey guys so i sold my bike a bit back and i'm ready to buy my next bike and i'm gonna go for the 2010 daytona 675, i rode my friends 2007 675 and wow i'm impressed, so i have no clue how bike dealerships work, i'm assuming its just like cars dealership and you can negotiate, ex imports want to sell me one for 11500 with everything, is that a good deal for a 2010 daytona 675, it looks like a good deal but you never know its ex imports and they refuse to negotiate the price they say they are going off the msrp on the bike's website.

F ex imports! too expensive!! go elsewhere. and yes you can negtioate of coarse. best way would be to buy a used one. alot cheaper, but brand new is always nice.. dont know too too much about the 675's. wwhere/prices, etc..

New is nice though for sure. All depends on how much $ you would like to waste!

If you are going to buy new, just shop around to other dealerships and compare prices. Never be afraid to say no and just walk out if you don't like the price. Research the interwebs for what other people have paid.

get a new Buell 1125R for like $7K...otherwise, do what a bunch of other people are saying, and shop around.
I don't know if I'd trust getting a used bike; you don't know what kind of squidly acts have damaged the engine internals.

I've heard some people take potential used bikes to Motorcycles Unlimited, and they'll let you know if it's worth buying.

Unless you don't mind fixing up your bike
