Just trying to get a general idea. My local dealer wants 17500 USD OTD for the S. Seems high 0:)


MSRP for the S is 14,995 USD + local tax 6.25% = 15,932 USD. Maybe a hundred or two more for title and license. That's about... 1200 USD markup, even with MSRP :|

In Australia the supersport and the 959 panigale are the same price $19990 aud + on road costs which ads 2k to the price. We are still waiting here btw for first arrival...

Bane.

Maybe TX is different but in GA the sales tax is on top of MSRP, freight and setup charges. That would be just over $17k here. There's still some markup in yours obviously as you have a lower tax %. What are they charging for freight, setup and doc fees?

Don't forget freight fees to get it from customs to the dealership, and setup fees to get it out of the crate, full of fluids and inspected/prepped for riding. Depends on the dealer and manufacturer for these, expect something around $600 for freight and $300 for setup.

Here's the breakdown of my bike according to my dealership...

MSRP 14,995
But according to my invoice that does include destination charge ($525), license and title ($30), administration fee ($335), then there's the sales tax of apr. $825.

I am feeling rather surprised at how dealerships operate in the USA. My red S cost me us$14000 and I paid extra for the "on the road" service, its registration. I think some of you guys are seriously being taken for a ride by your local dealerships. Genuinely so surprised by the actions I read on here. I don't even know if there's any recourse for you to take against them.

There is recourse...wait until their supply is up and then buy. It's a game, one that I rather enjoy, that often times must be played when buying here in the US. My dealer has a brand new 2015 Speed Triple R they finally marked down to $11,995 although it may be too little to late. As long as the inventory is down and want is up, dealers will be less likely to budge on price. I had a guy yesterday telling me how I should buy his SS when I told him twice already I'd be looking for an SS S if/when I buy.

Okay, there's been no movement on this thread but I see people buying bikes. What are people in the US paying for a SuperSport S?

It would be helpful to know what you're paying for the bike before tags/tax/title as those three things vary by location. I talked to my older dealer today and said their next bike was a white bike with red wheels sometime in June I think. I'm getting ready to start talking with 3 dealers to see who I can get the best deal from. I'll likely want to sell my Multi first but if I can get around $10k on trade I may just do that b/c the way GA handles taxes.

$14,995 which is the US MSRP for a white Supersport S. Plus tags/tax/title so around $17,000 for me.

I just talked to two dealers (Atlanta BMW Ducati and Touring Sport in Greenville). Both gave me the same number for the white $14,995 + Freight of 295 + Setup of $550 +Doc fee of $150 + DMV fees of $158 (for being out of state if I buy from my dealer back home in SC) + $398 in taxes (getting $10,800 on trade for the Multi). Total before trade is $16,646.30 for a SS S in white. It may be a slight bit less at Atlanta BMW Ducati b/c it's in GA but they also were only talking about $10k for my trade.

I got an estimate on one. $14,999 plus $1,050 setup fee, plus $495 for admin fees, plus 10% tax which is around $1500. I've not tried to negotiate because I'm not ready to buy, but it's over $18 grand for me. If I were ready, I doubt that I'd be able to talk them into taking off a thousand dollars right now.

That's a lot of loot, so I'm gonna try to sell a bike and wait until I can find a used one or wait to find a great deal on a new one even if I have to fly and ride. At least I'd get an awesome road trip/vacation out of that one.
