Purchasing R3 in CA

Hello!

I am currently in the market for an R3 at Daly City, CA and was given an OTD price of $5840.00 by one of the dealers for a 2016 Matte Gray R3 after fees/registration/taxes etc. It seems like a decent cost considering a buddy of mine bought a 2015 R3 for $5800.00 OTD. But my question is, is there anyone around here in CA that managed to talk them down a bit more? Or is this price already reasonable enough? (First time doing this whole negotiating deal) Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hey Hobbez! I'm right next door in Pacifica.

I got my 2015 in Nov from K&B Motorsports in Petaluma for $5400 OTD.
There are a couple on Craigslist right now for $4500.

Let me know once you get the bike. It'd be fun to have some riding company.

Further you get away from 415 , the less sales tax. Try Modesto, Stockton, Tracy. 2016 Red/White, $5600 OTD as well in Fayetteville, NC.

I paid 5k OTD at Wheels in Motion in Chatsworth a couple months ago. That was for a 2015 though. You need to find a volume dealer to get the best price. A price of $5,500 is like paying MSRP, tax, and registration (in CA) so I definitely wouldn't pay more than that for a 2016 if you want the gray. The 2015's are where you could probably get less than that. It's the Dealer markups that get the price north of $5,500 and that should all be negotiable. You just have to find the right dealer. Good luck.

Try using the costco auto buying service, from my own experience you get $500 off from msrp

I'm looking to buy for registration in SF, dealers are refusing to go below $5900. Even when I've showed them others have gotten for less.
