With today's economy, most Yamaha dealers are offloading the bigger, more expensive, bikes for waaaaaaaaaay cheaper pricing than the posted MSRP. The beauty of MSRP is that it stands for Manufacturer's SUGGESTED Retail Price. It's just a suggestion - And those are like opinions, and Opinions are like a$$holes: everyone's got one! - and as long as you have a reasonable suggestion of your own, then you can walk out of there, not feeling like you were just violated. Anyhow, that being said, you can probably end up walking out of the dealership, having paid around $11k OTD for a Roadstar Warrior.


That, however, is just my opinion.

I agree, but 15K seems a bit steep. In my opinion buying a used bike is much better. There are a bunch of beautiful bikes for sale on this forum for under 10K, and most have low mileage and come with a ton of accessories. Thats my 2c's

 is that with all my mods included?

In all fairness, the $11k OTD is just for the bike. Most dealerships will give you a big break on accessories purchased along with the bike. Expect to pay full price for the labor, though, unless you can do it yourself.

I agree...even with the mods, 15K seems a little steep. The mods you listed aren't too elaborate from "time to do" standpoint- you could do them all yourself in a couple hours - so figure the stealer will charge you for twice that.

You can buy a brand new 0 miles 2007 Warrior for $9,000 or less... eBay is full of them and they are sold by dealers.
IMO, the top price for your 2008 bike + all parts you listed should be max $11,000. Your add-ons do not cost $2,000 anyways...

The $4,000 you could save on it will be surely invested on a nice big wheel + a gift to your wife.

I paid $11,000 out the door for my brand new06, and I now know that I could have made a better deal!!!!! I was just blind sided by the warrior (I had never seen one and fell in love) and the dealer took advantage of it........ I would not pay more than that for one... and the accessories are not worth $4,000 more... you could get a stock bike and install all that stuff yourself for a lot less....

That is what makes this forum so great. Make sure to post up when you make the purchase to let us know what you were able to negotiate. Then we can use the money you saved to throw a huge rswarrior.com party!


Seriously, good luck with the purchase and I hope you get the bike. You will not regret it.

I live in Minnesota, and I bought an 08 Midnight Warrior three weeks ago. The Midnight retails for $12,850. I paid $12,300 before tax and license bone stock. You were quoted almost $3000 more for a few modifications. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think those mods add up to three grand.

'08 leftover Warrior - 11000


V&H exhaust - 450


Speedstar Air - 170


Baron's Bomber bars - 130


PCIII - 280


3 hours labor - 240


------------


Total shouldn't be more then $12,270 at the most so yeah, even OTD at 15K is too much.

There's about $1500 in accessories and labor, plus if it was dyno tuned (which is not likely).


I'd agree $11k OTD would be excellent, $12k would be acceptable, plus any state sales tax and licensing.

That's a unique perspective on "OTD" isn't it? When someone tells me "OTD" they better mean "out the door", not plus blah blah blah...


I think you'd be pretty hard pressed to find a dealer willing to give youan '08plus all the accessories installed for 11K OTD. Yet.
