Cost For Volusia

2213 Views 10 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Uncle Bob
I am getting close in my decision to buy a Volusia 800. Yesterday at the dealer I got some initial numbers for its cost; $6,499.00 cost for the bike, $149.00 shipping fee and $249.00 assembly fee. Never buying/owning a bike before I have several questions for the forum;
1) What could be "normal" expected additional fees associated with its purchase?
2) What are the usual percentage markups?
3) Is negotiation for the final price similar to buying a car?
4) Is there a website where I could go to find out what the dealer invoice would be on that bike?
My desire is for both me and the dealer to have a positive outcome from the sale of the bike. I certainly do not want to offend any dealers that are part of this forum but want to become a bit more educated to make sure I'm getting a fair deal.
Thanks for any advice you can provide.

I read elsewhere in this forum sometime ago that a dealer pays $5700 for the Volusia. I don't know if this is true but it sounds right . I'm in the same position as you are and after checking out many different bikes I've decided on the Volusia also. You should be able to get the dealer to come off at least some of those extra "fees and costs". Good luck.
