Maybe this will help people purchase an R3 in the area. ;)

Bought the bike at Berts Megamall in West Covina, CA

Bike- 4990 (500 deposit)
Dealer Prep/Freight - 127.73
Document fee - 80
9.5% Taxes- 493.78
DMV fees- 116
Tire recycle fee 3.50
Total- 5,811 OTD

They originally quoted me 7,823. They priced matched as close as they could from another dealer in Simi Valley that had the bike for 5,600 OTD. Simi valley is an hour away from where I live. More than an hour with traffic. They also gave me 10% off all accessories.

I went to Del Amo in Costa Mesa and my OTD with taxes and all that was $7k!

The dealership fees alone were over $1K

note: i financed the bike cuz I didn't have cash to pay for it in full. I crashed my ninja 300 and wanted a new one ASAP and couldn't wait

I financed as well. I just negotiated with the OTD price rather than negotiating the monthly payment.

I paid $6K OTD plus they threw in a fender eliminator from Yosh so figure more like $5850. Same dealership. They will rip you off if they think they can.

it is a shame yamaha is letting dealers rip its fans.
Yes, some dealers are most certainly gouging big time.

The range so far reported by forum members is from a low of $5100 OTD in Oregon (no sales tax there) to a rather ridiculous high reported by a member in California of $10000 OTD

That was from Nick in Hayward California. He wrote:

"in california i paid 8k almost 9 and thats after taxes, fees and my down payment. i put down 1200 so it would have been about 10k with out that"

5500 in Sacramento. Called 3 dealers, and they were all talking 5600 to 6200. Won't budge much as these bikes are selling like hotcakes. The only way they will discount is if off season gets here and they are overstocked.

I was thinking of going to Del Amo in CM also but my credit is about 640 and going in without a down payment, so not too sure what effect this if any this will have on the OTD price. Did you put a down and is your credit fairly decent?

Paid cash so can't help there.

NEXT of Inglewood said they'll do it for $5300 OTD if cash is paid. From the sounds of it their other location in Huntington Beach could do the same price. Apparently they're not commission based and I was told if cash is in hand they'll price match any dealer in SoCal I can find.
