View Full Version : Current pricing on leftover '08 Rs?

So, I see that TenTwelve paid something silly like $7400 for his NOS Tuono R. I have several places within a couple hundred miles of CLT that have 08 Rs in stock, but the cheapest is ~$9K advertised. My question is how much should I really expect to spend to get one? It seems unlikely that a bike advertised at $9-10K is going to sell for ~$7.5K, no?

So recent purchase stories are welcome (you or just somebody you know)!

Thanks, fellas.

When I originally was presented with an offer on the Tuono R back in October it was at a slightly higher price and I did a little cycletrader digging to see what was close-by and the prices involved and there were quite a few left in a reasonable radius and last I checked cycletrader the supply has near vanished.

So, supply and demand might keep the prices up a bit. Plus, it helps to know the sales manager. :)

All you can do is go in there and haggle with them. :)

I found cycletrader.com to be the best resource. If you're willing to travel a little bit to pick one up, you can save major $$$.

I'm located in northern Minnesota, and drove 18 hours out to Xtreme Powersports in Maryland to pick up my 2008 Factory. The nearest dealers were still asking near full retail for everything - I saved about $6000 by driving to pick one up. Definitely worth the $600 in gas and van rental!

AF1 has some great prices too, definitely worth checking out.

:plus: to Xtreme Powersports. Seems a LOT of members have drove out of their way to get a bike from these guys. I drove 8ish Hours to them for my RSV.

Oh hey, and I see your in Charlotte, try to stay away from Interstate Cycle and Mathews Fun Machines. Interstate thinks their big stuff becuase their in Huntersville and charge you for it. Mathews Fun Machines seems to cater to the Jap crowd.

I picked up a leftover 08 R for $7k in November (Barnies St. Petersburg). I was in the dealership not too long ago and they were asking about $8k for the same bike (I think that they had one red and one blue one left). I expect that if you talked with them, you might be able to get the $7k pricing. Good luck.

I live in Canada, so doesn't really apply to US Citizens,
But I as well got a great deal on my 2007.5 Tuono R, paid $12,500 cdn
And back in 2007 they were listed for $16,000 in Canada.
So major savings for me and I had to drive 2 hours and $120 worth of gas,
but so worth the hassle for an awesome bike!
Cheers,
Den

I'd get on the phone with them and tell them you're from out of town and you're dead serious about an immediate purchase.

I bought my '07 Factory T from Xtreme Powersports about a year ago. 10,900 and they shipped it for free, couldn't turn it down:)

Might be worth checking out Moto International too. I got my bike for them for a great price (shipped). They don't post their sale prices online so you gotta call them. Great guys to deal with.

Any good dealers in your area? Sometimes savings a few extra bucks may not be worth foregoing of a good dealer standing behind their sale and support. Unless they is a a sizable difference (very subjective) I would opt for a dealer I can trust to take my bike back for service and support... :peace:

I bought mine out of state, 07.5 Tuono for $6,900 plus shipping of around 200-300 about 45 days ago.

The dealer you are talking about may have paid more for theirs and may not be willing to take a loss. Dealers get leftover bikes for cheaper than they got their original ones--makes sense really. Also, dealers go out of business and Aprilia has to mark them down to another dealer to try and move them. I'm sure that's the deal with both of my bikes.

Keep an eye out on Ebay and hit them up after the auctions have expired and didn't sell.

My local dealers wanted about $10.5k plus tons of fees for a new one--about $14k OTD. I wanted the older color scheme and with the money I saved bought an RXV 550.:plus:

Well, talked to Jesse at Barney's in St. Pete. The first price he gave me was $8999 + about $950 in freight/setup/doc fees.

I can get $8999 from a place in northern GA with no other added fees, and that was without even trying to deal!

Well hell, Than try to deal with them. Like I said call them up and be very explicit about your intent to purchase immediately and offer a deposit over the phone.

They are asking $1999 over the advertised price which I paid in November and I didn't pay a setup fee. I paid $7000 + tax + title and tag. This is for a 2008 R correct? I bought a 2008 R - was in the crate when I saw it.

Yes, this is for an '08 Tuono R. Last one they have, evidently. Here is the quote from the email to me:

"Here is the pricing. Taxes may be different for your state.

List Price:
12999
419 Freight
325 Setup
199 Admin
3.5 Tire and Battery
13945.50 Sub Total
886.73 FL Tax
150 Est. Registration
14982.23 Total

Your Price:
8999
419 Freight

199 Admin
3.5 Tire and Battery
9945.50 Sub Total
646.73 FL Tax
150 Est. Registration
10742.23 Total"

I emailed him back quoting your deal (more or less) jhawk - we'll see what he says.

I know the closest dealer to me that has leftover 08s is asking $8999 as well and what they have is like 6 red ones for some odd reason.

His response:

"The price I offered you is exactly what Jeff paid for an 07. If the other dealer will do below $8999 with no fees then I cannot match that. Keep in mind this is a brand new bike out of the crate with the 2 year factory warranty and no miles that has never been stored outside like most of our competitors."

TenTwelve, you got any contact info for that dealer near you? Looks like Barney's is a dead end.

I can get it from that GA dealer for $8750 with no other fees except taxes and tag when I get it back to NC. Just not a "too good to pass up" deal, IMO.

I'll wait and watch - this is earlier than I wanted to get another bike, anyway.

I live in Toledo near Honda East, and even though cycletrader says what it says, they actually only have 1 red and white 08 left. The price on the bike in the dealer is $9999. Their website says $9299 last I looked. :banana:

I would offer them 8.5 with a "buy it now".

Thats probably the best your going to do.

Agreed, Joker. However, like I said, it's earlier than I wanted to do something, anyway. So, if I can't find a "too good to pass up" deal (which would definitely be below $8K, and would likely have to be around $7.5K), I'll wait.

If a Tuono is really what you're waiting for you're either going to have to buy an '08 now or wait and try your luck to see if the '09 left-overs get down to a good price.

You've got to keep in mind that the recession was in full swing when dealers were ordering '09s and the inventory of '09s and 10s will be significantly less than what everyone had for '08.

I know I got really lucky with my purchase as the price of '08s are either going back up or staying pretty steady.

Very well stated. And more important, probably true.

The deals may disappear very quickly.

Good point, however, there are still several 08s out there right now. I'll keep my eyes open and see what happens.

I hear you about the recession and dealer orders. However, did Aprilia dial back their production? If not, those bikes have to be out there somewhere...

I'm certain they did dial back production. Not that I'm the authority but, we haven't seen reports of bikes piled up at ports like imported cars. Plus, I get a good glimpse of the industry from a close friend who's a regional sales rep for Yamaha. Not to mention the glaring absence of major manufacturers at the International Motorcycle Shows. The economy has really hit the powersports world considering for the most part they're not a necessity.

Look, I'm not trying to be doom and gloom I'm just an enthusiastic enthusiast. ( :banana: ) who'd like his fellow enthusiasts to have a clear picture. :)

Just bought a leftover 2007.5 at New Haven Powersports in CT for $7999. They have one more left at the same price (Blue/White). Ask for Chris Green; real nice guy!
